    anaplasia
  2. defective development or congenital absence of an organ or tissue
    aplasia
  3. factor essential to normal blood clotting contained within the blood plasma; designated by roman numerals I to V and VII to XIII; their absence, diminution, or excess may lead to abnormality of clotting
    coagulation factors
  4. record of number of white blood cells, including the determination of the percentage of each type of cell present; the differential is used in the diagnosis of various blood disorders, infections, and other abnormal conditions of the body
    differential cell count
  5. hemorrhagic spot larger than a petechia in the skin or mucous membrane; nonelevated, blue or purplish
    ecchymosis
  6. hemorrhage from the nose
    epistaxis
  7. formation of red blood cells
    erythropoiesis
  8. inflammation of the tongue
    glossitis
  9. pain in the tongue
    glossodynia
  10. blood in a joint cavity
    hemarthrosis
  11. volume percentage of erythrocytes (RBCs) in whole blood
    hematocrit
  12. the formation and development of blood cells, usually in bone marrow
    hematopoiesis
  13. protein in the erythrocyte that transports molecular oxygen to body cells
    hemoglobin
  14. oxygenated arterial blood; bright red and about 97% saturated with oxygen; venous blood is a darker color and contains only 20-70% oxygen
    oxyhemoglobin
  15. rupture of erythrocytes with the release of hemoglobin into the plasma
    hemolysis
  16. diminished availability of oxygen to body tissues
    hypoxia
  17. lack of adequate amounts of oxygen that can result from the rapid diffusion of nitrous oxide molecules from the bloodstream into the lungs. Occurs if 100% oxygen is not administered at the conclusion of a nitrous oxide sedation procedure
    diffusion hypoxia
  18. increase in the total number of leukocytes
    leukocytosis
  19. reduction of the total number of leukocytes in the blood; count under 500 per ml
    leukopenia
  20. destruction or decomposition, as of a cell, bacterium, or other substance
    lysis
  21. abnormally large red blood cell; contrast with microcyte, abnormally small erythrocyte
    macrocyte
  22. young cell of the granulocyte series; occurs normally in bone marrow; found in circulating blood in certain diseases
    myelocyte (my lil cyte)
  23. diminished number of neutrophils (PMNs)
    neutropenia
  24. minute, pinpoint, round, nonraised, purplish-red spot on the skin or mucous membrane caused by hemorrhage
    petechia
  25. engulfing of microorganisms and foreign particles by phagocytes, such as macrophages.
  26. phagocytosis
  27. cell in connective tissue converted from B lymphocyte; involved in chronic inflammation and immune response
    • hey! i'm over here!
    • PLASMA CELL!
  28. hemorrhage into the tissues, under the skin, and through the mucous membranes; produces petechiae and ecchymoses
    purpura
  29. when circulating platelets are decreased
    thrombocytic purpura
