4.8 - 5.4 Million.
Sickle cell anemia
Inherited blood disease.
Incorrect amino acid in the hemoglobin that cause RBC to sickle.
The RBCs are very fragile and their shape cause them to block vessels.
what are two nutritional blood disorders?
RBC cannot produce functional hemoglobin and they are unusually small.
Fewer number of RBC due to vitamin B12 deficiency.
How long after an injury
of hemostasis begins?
Where platelets removed from the blood circulation?
How long platelets circulate in the blood?
Between 9-12 days.
How many hemoglobins molecules are in one RBC?
Between 250 to 280 million.
Which plasma protein transports steroids, hormones, and fatty acids?
How hemolytic disease of new born can be prevented?
By Rhogan shot. It will prevent a mother with RH- to develop anti-D Plasma antibodies.
Understand Hemolytic disease of new born (HDN).
Mother has RH-
first fetus has RH+
During delivery mother's and baby's blood mixed.
Mothers blood got sensitized (develop anti-D plasma antibodies)
Mother anti-D plasma antibodies will attack the RBCs of the second fetus if the fetus has RH+ blood.
Will RH- people have anti-RH antibodies?
Only if their blood is sensitized by being mixed with RH+ blood.
List functions of platelets?
Act as temporary patch in damaged vessel wall.
release clotting factors.
reduce the size of a break in the vessel wall.
Play large role in the process of hemostasis.
Where are platelets stored?
In the spleen. (Approximately 2/3)
What antigen will be found on the surface of RBCs of each blood type?
: A agglutinogen (antigen).
: B agglutinogen.
: A & B agglutinogens
: No agglutinogens.
Which antigen causes the RH factor?
What cause transfusion reaction?
Blood type mismatch between donor and recipient.
What antibodies will be found in the plasma of each each of the blood type?
: No Antibodies A or B
: Both antibodies A & B.
. ( plasma antibodies do not recognize RBC surface antigans as self antigens)
What are the steps of the vascular phase of hemostasis?
1. endothelial cells contract and expose basement membrane to blood stream.
2. Endothelial cells release chemical factors, local hormones, and endothilin that stimulate vascular spasm and speeds up division of fibroblasts into endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells.
3.Endothelial cells become sticky. It eable them to stick to each other and to platelets.
What is hemostesis? What are its phases?
Hemostasis = stop bleeding.
Its phases 1. Vascular phase. 2. Platelet phase. 3. Coagulation phase.
Know the common pathway of coagulation.
bind to and activate

by endothelial cells.
combined with ions and other clotting factors to activate
What starts intrinsic pathway?
Proenzyme that is exposed to collagen fibers at the site of the injury.
Than it process with assistance of PF-3.
at the end it will activate Factor X.
