  1. Albumen
    Most abundant protein in plasma
  2. Hematopeoiesis
    Blood cells are formed in red bone marrow by monocytes
  3. Hemoglobin
    in RBC's, transports O2 and CO2. In men, normally 14 to 18 grams/100cc and in women 12 to 16 grams/100cc
  4. Diapedesis
    The movement of blood cells into injured tissues
  5. Thrombocytes
    normal range is 250,000 to 450,000/cc
  6. Anemia
    Decreased RBC's and decreased hemoglobin causes decreased O2 (from blood loss) - fatigue and pale skin are common
  7. Hemophilia
    Poor clotting, sex linked gene
  8. Embolism
    Artery clogged by blood clot from another part of the body.
  9. Thrombosis
    Blood clot, common with immobility
  10. Autologous Bone Marrow Transplant
    When you use your own bone marrow vs allogenic
  11. Heart
    • 2 ventricles
    • 2 atriums and valves
    • Angled top right to lower left on diaphram
  12. Stroke Volume
    Usually 60 to 80 ml/contraction
  13. Coronary Arteries
    Blood to heart muscles
  14. SA node
    where electrical signals regulate the heart beat
  15. Systolic
    (systole) contraction of heart
  16. Diastolic
    (diastole) relaxation of heart
  17. QRS Waves
    represents contraction of ventricles
  18. Total Cholesterol
    Should be less than 200 mg/dl
  19. HDL
    Should be higher than 40 mg/dl
  20. Murmurs
    Heart valves don't close properly
  21. Bicuspid (Mitral Valve)
    Is between the left atrium and left ventricle
  22. Angina Pectoris
    Severe chest pain that rediates due to lack of O2.
  23. CPR
    All health care providers are recommended to know
  24. Pulse Pressure
    Subtract diastolic from systolic pressure
  25. Brachial Pulse
    Inside elbow
  26. Foramen Ovale
    Opening of the arterial septum in fetal circulation
  27. Cyanosis
    Most common sympton of congenital heart disease
  28. Gangrene
    Dead tissue due to insufficient blood supply
  29. Hypotension
    When systolic pressure is less than 100
