Human Biology 11

BLOOD
  • Carries the necessities of life to the cells and takes waste from the cells
  • What are the necessities of life?
    • Oxygen
    • Nutrients
    • Hormones
    • Antibodies
  • What are waste products?
    • Carbon Dioxide
what is blood
WHAT IS BLOOD?

Blood is composed of:

  • Plasma (55%)
  • Red Blood Cells (40%)
  • White Blood Cells (1%)
  • Platelets (4%)

Bodies contain 5 L of blood

plasma
PLASMA
  • Liquid part of blood
  • Approx. 90% water
  • The other 10% consist of dissolved substances that are essential for life
red blood cells
RED BLOOD CELLS
  • Also known as erythrocytes
  • Main function is to “pick up” oxygen molecules and retrieve carbon dioxide molecules
  • Hemoglobin in the red blood cell carry the oxygen
  • Gets its red colour from the iron in hemoglobin when it carries oxygen
  • Iron acts as an oxygen magnet
white blood cells
WHITE BLOOD CELLS
  • Also known as leukocytes
  • Function to protect the body from infection and disease causing organisms
  • There are many different kinds
4 characteristics of white blood cells
4 CHARACTERISTICS OF WHITE BLOOD CELLS
  • Capable of moving on their own and changing their shapes
  • Phagocytosis – surround or engulf bacteria and digest their harmful material
  • Capable of recognizing antigens, which are chemicals on the surface of cells. This allows the white blood cells to know if it belongs or is foreign
  • Produce antibodies which are special proteins which are used to destroy the pathogensn (Organsims that cause disease)

platelets
PLATELETS
  • Are responsible for the initial stages of blood clotting
  • Are not cells, but rather tiny fragments of white blood cells
  • Contain a special enzyme that initiates clotting
anemia
ANEMIA
  • occurs when there are not enough red blood cells to carry all the oxygen the body requires.
  • People who have this condition appear tired and lack energy to work efficiently.

types of anemia
TYPES OF ANEMIA

The most common types of anemia:

  • Iron deficiency anemia – Not enough iron in diet which means that RBC can’t carry enough oxygen
  • Sickle cell anemia – RBC take on a sickle shape (half moon or crescent) which decreases the amount of oxygen it can carry
hemophilia
HEMOPHILIA
  • This blood disorder prevents normal blood clotting
  • Bleed for a longer time than others after an injury
  • Also may bleed internally, this bleeding can damage your organs or tissues and may be life threatening.
leukemia
LEUKEMIA
  • Cancer of bone marrow
  • Most types increase the number of WBC and decrease the number of RBC
  • WBC reproduce rapidly but are ineffective
  • The body is unable to cope with infections
  • With decreased amounts of red blood cells, the body isn’t receiving enough oxygen
mononucleosis aka kissing disease
MONONUCLEOSISAKA “KISSING DISEASE”
  • Not really a disease of the blood but it does result in the production of large numbers of WBC
  • Most commonly transferred through saliva (hence why it is called the kissing disease)
  • Thought to be caused by a virus that is not easy to get rid off
  • Symptoms include: fatigue, swollen glands, fever, and sore throat.
how do you seek treatment
HOW DO YOU SEEK TREATMENT?
  • Diagnosis – the process of identifying the disease or problem
  • Looking at blood samples can help diagnose the problem or disease
  • What do they look for?
    • Number of Red Blood cells
    • Number of White blood cells
    • Number of platelets
the process of blood clotting
THE PROCESS OF BLOOD CLOTTING
  • Platelets break open at wound site and release thromboplastin. (reaction starts)
  • Thromboplastin causes calcium and prothrombin to unite and form thrombin.
  • Thrombin joins with fibrinogen to form fibrin
  • A network of fibrin threads traps red blood cells and forms a clot that plugs the wound.
blood types
BLOOD TYPES
  • Determined by the presence or absence of antigens on RBC
  • Antibodies recognize RBC as our own and will bind to RBC that they don’t recognize
blood types a b ab o
BLOOD TYPES A, B, AB, O
  • There are 2 kinds of antigens  A and B
  • If antigen A is present, the blood type is A
  • If antigen B is present, the blood type is B
  • Blood type AB, has both antigen A and B
  • Blood type O, has no antigens
antibodies and blood types
ANTIBODIES AND BLOOD TYPES
  • Antibodies found in plasma are ALWAYS opposite the antigen on RBC
  • For example:
      • Blood type B has antigen B on the RBC so plasma would have antibodies for antigen A
      • Type AB blood have no antibodies
      • Type O blood have both A and B antibodies
the rh factor
THE RH FACTOR
  • The Rh factor is an antigen found on the RBC of most people
  • If you have the antigen, you are Rh+
  • If you don’t have the antigen, you are Rh-
  • The disease associated with the Rh factor is known as Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn
transfusions
TRANSFUSIONS
  • If antibodies and antigens of the same type come together, the RBC clump
  • Why is this important?
  • If blood type A is given blood type B, the antibodies bind to the antigens, clumping the blood which can be fatal
