  1. What are the seven elements?
    • Granulocytes: neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils.
    • Agranulocytes: monocytes, lymphocytes
  2. Myeloblasts turn into what?
    Myelocytes; stem cells that develope into granulocytes.
  3. What color are the three granulocytes?
    • Neutro-lav/pink (bacteria, most numerous)
    • eosin- red (allergic reaction/parasites, large granules)
    • baso- dark blue (rarest, inflammatory response, large granules)
  4. Agranulocytes are what color?
    gray and skyblue cytoplasm
  5. Monocytes
    can leave the bloodstream. Then called macrophages. They are the largest WBC and increase in the recovery stage.
  6. Lymphocytes
    • differ into T cells and B cells.
    • T cells- develop immune responses
    • B cells- form antiBodies
  7. Platelets are formed from what?
    Megakaryoblasts then megakaryocytes release fragments of its cytoplasm which make thrombocytes or platelets
  8. What is the name of the stain used for a smear?
    Wright's stain which changes the pH
  9. What does anisocytosis describe?
  10. poikilocytosis
  11. polychromia, hypochromia
  12. What is hemostasis
    the ability to stop bleeding or to clot
  13. How does a clot form?
    the vessels constrict, the platelets concentrate, initiating a clot of fibrin mesh.
  14. What does heparin do?
    Heparin is made by the body to keep the clotting mechanism in balance.
  15. What is INR?
    International Normalized Ratio
  16. What is normal protime?
    9-18 seconds or 2-2.5 INR
  17. Neutrophils range
  18. Eosinophils range

  28. Hematocrit measures what?
    measures the % of packed RBC's
  29. HCT's are approx how much of Hgb?
    • 3x
    • Hgb x 3 +- 2
  30. A pt with abnormally high HCT levels is called what?
  31. When doing the HCT the two samples must be within ?
    2% and averaged
  32. In HCT take note of the color of the plasma....?
    • Red- hemolysis
    • White- lipemia
    • Dark yellow-brown- jaundice
  33. A ESR measures what?
    the rate the RBC's settle out of anticoagulated blood within 60 min.
