    • - Whitish layer is called the buffy coat and contains leukocytes (white blood cells) and platelets.
    • - Plasma is least dense component and makes up most of the whole blood.
  67. Know the general constituents of plasma and the function that they serve (water, proteins, platelets, salts, etc.)
    • - water : absorbs heat
    • - Electrolytes : helps maintain plasma osmotic pressure and normal blood pH.
    • - Plasma Proteins : osmotic pressure and maintain water balance in blood and tissues. 
    • - Nutrients : materials absorbed from digestive tract and transported through the body.
    • - Respiratory gases : oxygen and carbon dioxide.
    • - Hormones : steroid carried by plasma proteins.
  68. Know the major cell types in the formed elements of blood, and the general function each of these cells serve.

    • - Leukocytes : defense against diseases. 
    • - Platelets : essential for clotting purposes.
  69. Understand how RBCs carry oxygen, and what determines the observed color of a RBC under a microscope.  What is hemoglobin?
    Hemoglobin is the protein that makes red blood cells red, binds easily and reversibly with oxygen, and most oxygen carries in blood is bound to hemoglobin. 

    • In the lungs, when oxygen binds to iron, the hemoglobin, now called oxyhemoglobin
    • becomes ruby red. 
    • In body tissues, oxygen detaches from iron and hemoglobin results in deoxyhemoglobin and becomes dark red.
  70. Understand how to obtain a hematocrit reading and the formula to obtain the relative percentages of RBC, WBC, and plasma.
    • • Hematocrit reading is obtained by a 
    • centrifuge.

    • • Erythrocytes:
    • Healthy Males : 47% +/- 5% (42-52)
    • Healthy Females : 42% +/- 5% (37-47)
    • • Leukocytes : less than 1% 
    • • Plasma : remaining 55%
  71. How can you tell if a person is anemic or polycythemic?
    Anemic : person's blood oxygen carrying capacity is too low. Caused by blood loss, not enough blood cells produced and too many RBC destroyed. They are often fatigued, pale, short of breath and chilled.

    Polycythemic : excess of erythrocytes that increases blood viscosity. Increased oxygen Causes greater endurance and speed. BUT. Risk of heart failure and stroke.e
  72. Understand the terms leukocytosis (High wbc, indicates infection, hemorrage, metabolic disease, poison by chemicals), leucopenia (low WBCs), polycythemia, and anemia.  What could be a cause of any of these types of conditions?
    Leukocytosis : white blood cell count is over 11,000.
  73. Be able to recognize the following from slides: polycythemia (too many RBCs, why would this be bad?), sickle-cell anemia, iron deficiency anemia

    • Image Upload
    • Iron deficiency 
    • Image Upload
  74. Understand sickle-cell anemia.  What is the cause?  Why is this disease still around?
    • Caused by a change in just one of the amino acids in a globin molecule. Causes blood cells to have a crescent shape. 
    • Still around because of malaria. Sickling reduces the malaria parasites' ability to survive and enhances macrophages.
  75. Be able to recognize the following blood disorders from their microscope slides and state what is occurring in a patient’s body. (Cause + Effect)

    Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia
    Pernicious Anemia
    Infectious Mononucleiosis
    Sickle Cell Anemia

    • - Caused by genetic. Fatigue, shortness of breath, headache
    • - Caused by Trypanosoma Cruzi, a parasite. Damage to the heart and GI tract years later.

    • Image Upload
    • -Neutrophils : bacteria slayers
    • -Eosinophil : modulators of the immune response

    • -Monocyte : highly phagocytic.
  77. Understand what blood antigens are.  Know the major types of antigens that are tested for when blood-typing humans.
    Genetically determined glycoproteins. 

    A, B, AB, O
  78. Understand what antibodies are, and what cell types produce them.  Why can’t a person with type A blood receive a transfusion from a person with type B blood?  When in a person’s life is each type of antibody produced?
    • - Antibodies : blood protein produced in response to counter an antigen.
    • - Type A produces B-antigen. They can only get B-antigens. Type B does not produce B-antigens. Blood will agglutinate. 
    • - Conception.
  79. Which blood type would be the universal donor, and which type would be the universal recipient?  Why?  Know what type of blood a person could receive given their blood type, and know what blood types could be donated to a person with a given blood antigen.
    • Universal Donor : O 
    • Universal Recipient : AB
    • AB makes no antibodies. O doesn't have any antigens so antibodies aren't made to go against it.
  80. What is the rH factor?  How does the +/- of a person’s blood type affect who they can give to/receive from?
    • - genetically determined protein that can be present on red blood cell membranes. 
    • - You either have it or you don't.
  81. How would you test a person’s blood type?  Know how each blood type would react when exposed to anti-antigen serums.
    - Take their blood sample and apply anti A, anti B and Rh serums on it and find out which ones clog.
  82. Know where blood cells are created in the body, and know what hormone controls the production of RBCs, and where this hormone is produced.
    • - produces in the bone marrow.
    • - Horomone erythropoietin.
