    arteries that supply the heart muscle with oxygen
  28. heart attack
    complete obstruction of a coronary artery and some of the heart muscle dies from lack of oxygen
  29. angina pectoris

  30. angioplasty
    stick a balloon catheter in expand the balloon , expand the artery, compress the plaque
  31. stent
    use metal mesh to enlarge diamter of artery
  32. bypass surgery

    • a
    • b
    • o
    • ab
  50. antigens
    markers on cells
  51. antibodies
    your body makes against foreign antigens; plasma has antibodies to opposite blood type antigens
  52. hemolysis
    blood bursting from incompatible blood types
  53. you are born with antibodies
    against blood types
  54. you aren't born with antibodies to Rh factor
    first time you are exposed to the Rh factor, you make antibodies; the second time, your antibodies attack and hemolysis kills you
