- red blood cells shaped like biconcave disks which lack a nucleus and are small in size, compared to white blood cells,they transport oxygen to and carbon dioxide from the tissue
white blood cells have various shapes and size. they are named based on how they stain. they are nucleated and the nucleus is often distinctive. wbcs are an important part of the bodys defensive system.
what are the two types of wbcs
the category of wbcs containing membrane bound granules
the nucleus of the granlocytes stains deeply and exhibits multiple lobes. the cytoplasm does not stain but will appear pale, with many fine granules. these wbcs destroy bacteria
the nucleus of these granulocytes usually has two darkly stained loves connected by a thin strand. the cytoplasm contains large granules that stain reddish orange. these wbcs phagocytize antibody antigen complexes and attack some parasitic worm
the nucleus of these granulocytes exhibits two lobes which are difficult to see because of the large and dense blue stained granules. the granules aid in the inflammation process by releasing histamine
the category of wbcs lacking membrane bound granules
the nucleus is round,, or slightly oval, and almost fills the cytoplasm. the nucleus stains dark blue to purple, and the cytoplasm is usually light blue. these agranulocytes are involved in specific disease resistance. b cells, and natural killer cells are types of lymphoctes
the nucleus is a kidney bean or horse shoe shape. the nucleus stains darkly and the abundant cytoplasm is a pale blue. these arganulocytes develop into phagocytic macrophages.
precava and post cava
these are two large veins that enter the right atrium and carry unoxygenated blood from the superior and inferior body, respectively
this is the first chamber of the heart and receives unoxygenated blood from the body
tricuspid or right atrioventricular valve
this valve separates the right atrium and ventricle. it prevents back flow into the atrium
this valve separates the pulmonary trunk from the right ventricle and prevents back flow into the ventricle
this is the second chamber of the heart and pumps blood to the lungs
these arteries carry unoxgenated blood from the right ventricle to the lungs
these veins carry oxygenated blood from the lungs to the left atrium
this is the third chamber of the heart and receives oxygenated blood from the lungs
bicuspid, mitral or left atrioventricular valve
separates the left atrium and ventricle it prevents back flow into the atrium
this is the forth chamber of the heart and pumps oxygenated blood to the body
aortic semiounar vavle
this valve separates the aortic arc from the left ventricle and prevents back flow into the ventricle
aortic arch and aorta
this is the largest elastic artery in the body and carries oxygenated blood to the body
chordae tendonae and papillary muscles
these are the heart strings and the muscles that control the tricuspid and bicuspid valves
coronary arteries and veins
these are the vessels located on and in the actual myocardium or heart muscle. they supply and drain the myocardium of blood respectively
