    Plasma proteins
  73. 3 main plasma proteins

  76. 4% of plasma proteins, the largest, functions in clotting blood.
  77. When plasma proteins fall, tissues swell as water moves out of capillaries, due to diet or impaired liver.
  78. The stoppage of bleeding
  79. The three hemostatic mechanisms that control blood loss.
    • Blood vessel spasm
    • platelet plug formation
    • blood coagulation
  80. Cutting/breaking a small vessel stimulates smooth muscle to contract (vasospasms) which reduces blood loss. The effects result from direct stimulation of the vessel wall and pain receptors and may last for 30 minutes. A platelet plug forms.
    blood vessel spasm
  81. During blood vessel spasms, this is released by the platelets to help vasoconstriction.
  82. Platelets get "hung up" on the collagen fibers in connective tissue that is exposed from a broken vessel, to help stop bleeding.
    Platelet plug formation
  83. The most effective hemostatic mechanism results in the formation of a blood clot which can occur extrinsically due to the release of biochemicals from broken vessels and damaged tissues and can occur intrinsically when blood contacts a foreign substance.
    Blood Coagulation
  84. What triggers an extrensic clotting mechanism?
    Tissue damage
  85. Extrensic Clotting Mechanism leads to the release of what from platelets?
    prothrombin activator
  86. In the presence of Ca, prothrombin changes into what?
  87. Thrombin changes soluble _____ into insoluble _____.
    • fibrinogen
    • fibrin
  88. What do platelets and blood cells stick to to form a clot?
    fibrin meshwork
  89. Explain the positive feedback Extrensic Clotting Mechanism.
    As a clot begins to form, it promotes more clotting. Thrombin release causes more prothrombin to form and thus more thrombin.
  90. What type of mechanism is activated when blood comes in contact with a foreign surface like connective tissue, activating the Hageman factor?
    Intrinsic clotting mechanism
  91. Explain the Intrinsic Clotting Mechanism.
    • Blood comes into contact with a foreign surface.
    • Reactions involving clotting factors and Ca occurs.
    • Production of prothrombin.
    • Changes into thrombin.
    • Thrombin changes fibrinogen into fibrin
    • Blood clot forms
  92. The fluid part of coagulated blood.
  93. Plasma, minus fibrinogen and most other clotting factors.
  94. A blood clot forming abnormally in a vessel.
  95. A clot or fragment of a clot that has moved in a blood vessel.
  96. Obstruction of a blood vessel caused by a blood clot carried by the blood.
  97. Accumulations of fatty deposits change arterial linings, sometimes initiating inappropriate clotting. Most common cause of thrombosis.
  98. ____ of blood vessel prevents activation of intrinsic blood clotting mechanism.
    smooth lining
  99. Inhibits platelets from sticking to the blood vessel wall.
  100. How do fibrin threads prevent coagulation?
    absorb thrombin so it doesn't spread
  101. In the plasma, this blocks fibrin production, preventing coagulation
  102. To prevent coagulation, ____ from mast cells and basophils in connective tissue interferes with the formation of prothrombin activator.
  103. The first exposure to Rh+ causes Rh- person to produce what?
    anti-Rh antibodies
  104. A second exposure of Rh+ by an Rh- person causes RBC to do what?
