Thursday 27 October Topic: Blood!!!

DO NOW:

What do you already know about blood? Think about:Where is it in the body? Which types of organisms have it? What purpose does it serve? What does it contain? What problems/disorders can be associated with it?

objective
Objective
  • By the end of this period, you will be able to identify the components of blood that can be used for post-mortem analysis.

Agenda

  • Notes about blood
  • Vocabulary

HW

  • Create a concept map from the class notes
what is blood
What is BLOOD?
  • A bodily fluid (1 of 6)
  • Carries various substances
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Found in every “true” animal

OBJECTIVE: By the end of this period, you will be able to identify the components of blood that can be used for post-mortem analysis.

what does blood contain
What does blood contain?
  • PLASMA: straw colored liquid component of blood
  • CELLS: RBCs (erythrocytes), WBCs (leukocytes), platelets (thrombocytes)
  • MOLECULES: proteins, hormones, gases, nutrients, ions

OBJECTIVE: By the end of this period, you will be able to identify the components of blood that can be used for post-mortem analysis.

what can be analyzed
What can be analyzed?
  • CELLS: A cell count can be an indication of general health
    • WBC count = indicates presence of types of illness (lots = disease, almost none = HIV/AIDS)
    • RBC count = low number indicates anemia
    • Platelet count = various clotting disorders
what can be analyzed1
What can be analyzed?
  • MOLECULES:
    • Gases = respiratory issues around time of death (e.g. choking, carbon monoxide poisoning)
    • Nutrients = diabetes, general time of last meal
    • Proteins = many different types for many functions in the body. THE KEY ONES:
      • ALBUMIN – regulates blood pressure
      • METABOLITES – byproducts of the body breaking down substances (such as medicines, drugs, alcohol, poison)
      • ANTIBODIES – immune functions, can give info about where the person has been throughout life
post mortem analysis
Post-Mortem Analysis
  • What is it?
    • Aka AUTOPSY
    • Highly surgical procedure used to determine cause of death (suspicious or natural)
  • Why is it important?
    • 3 categories: forensic, clinical, academic
    • Used to place cause of death into 1 of 5 categories
      • Natural
      • Accident
      • Homicide
      • Suicide
      • Unknown

What can you test for each of the types of cells found in blood?

What molecules are important to test for in blood? Which one is most important to a forensics analyst and why?

What is post-mortem analysis? What types are there and what is the difference?

objective1

stations
STATIONS!
  • There are 3 stations
  • At each, you are to:
    • Actively read the provided material
