how much blood do you have
How much blood do you have?
  • Adults have ~5 liters
  • Blood = 8% body weight
red blood cells
Red Blood Cells

Biconcave disks

how rbc s pick up oxygen
How RBC’s pick up oxygen

Oxygen will bind to hemoglobin when RBC’s move through lungs

This occurs because of the high partial pressure in the “vessels” of the lungs

function of wbc s
Function of WBC’s
  • Granulocytes
    • Neutrophils (first WBC to arrive at infection site; phagocytosis)
    • Eosinophils (moderate allergic reactions and defend against parasitic worms)
    • Basophils (release histamine to promote inflammation)
function of wbcs
Function of WBCs
  • Monocytes (macrophages)
    • Phagocytosis of bacteria, dead cells, debris
  • Lymphocytes (T and B cells)
    • T cells directly attack foreign cells
    • B cells produce antibodies
most cells have carbohydrate or protein signals on their surface
Most cells have carbohydrate or protein signals on their surface
  • Called antigens
  • Different people have different antigens on their RBCs because of their genes
people do not only have a b antigens on red blood cells
People do not only have A/B antigens on red blood cells
  • Rhesus Factor = RBC antigen
  • People will have the factor or not, therefore you can be Rh + or Rh –
  • Antibodies exist to recognize these antigens
most and least common blood types
Most and Least Common Blood types
  • O+ is the most common blood type in U.S.
  • AB- is the least common blood type in the U.S.
platelets start the clotting cascade
Platelets start the clotting cascade
  • Damaged tissue releases signals (clotting factors) into blood
  • Because of clotting factors, platelets bind to damaged site
  • Platelets release prothrombrin (inactive enzyme)
  • Prothrombrin converted to thrombrin
  • Thrombrin converts fibrinogen to fibrin
what does fibrin
What does fibrin?
  • Forms a sticky meshwork that adheres to more platelets and RBC’s
  • This mesh of cells and proteins = clot
