clotting protiens that are normally found in the plasma of the blood
How many types of wbcs are there
someone with tyoe AB blood can receive blood from a person with type
A B O
the chambers of the heart are lined with
blood returning from most of the areas of the body enders which chamber of the heart?
the pulmonary artery is connected to the
veins (not arteries) have
valves along the inner walls
the systolic pressure is the pressure at the height of a
only in the region of the capillaries that an exchange occur between
the plasma of the blood and the surrounding tissue fluid
pump for circulatory system
circulate blood to and from the heart
partterns of circulation
different pathways that vellses follow
help tissue fluid back to normal patterns of circulation
made in flat bones
made in red bone marrow and lymphnoid tissue
Plasma makes up how much and how much is RBCand WBC
45% rbc and wbc
serum globulin- immulogical responses.
help with fluids
have no nucleus and disk like
transports oxygen to the body and co2 away from the cells. made possible by hemoglobin.
live 3-4 months. removed by liver and spleen
smallest cells, clotting mechanism.
WBC granular leukocytes
made in bone marrow.
basophil, neutrophil, and eosinophil.
Have a nucleus.
Protects body against infection
remove large particles like broken down tissue cells.
engolphing forign substances and make antibodies.
substances (protien) stimulate organisms immune system to make antibody
found in rbc
produced by immune system that destroys or innactivats a particular antigen
found in plasma
process of blood clotting
what starts the clotting process
throblplastin released by damaged bp
functions of the heart
creates pressure inorder to pump the blood through out the body
heart lies beneath the
sternum surrounded by the rib cage
inflamation of the sac the heart sits in
layers of the heart
endocardium(inner), epicardium(outer layer), myocardium (middle)
blood from the body
bring blood to heart
take blood away from the heart
superior vena cava
drains from head into the right atrium
lots of co2 and little oxygen
4 pulmonary veins dump into
left atrium into the left vetricle which is pushed throughout the body
heart beat order
bundle of his
carry blood away from the heart
layers of veins and arteries
tunica intama, media, anvatitia
the pressure within the vessels
squeezing of the heart
is in radial bone by hand
in the head
out of right ventricle (heart) into the lungs
returned to heart via pulmonary veins
drainage of gastrointestinal area going into portal vein into the liver.
leave liver in a large hepatic vein.
unique cuz of non functional systems
no need for digestive and respiratory system
2 umbilical arteries and 1 umbilical vein make
the umbilical cord
hole in the heart that sends blood from the right to left atrium
short vessel that connects the pulmonary artery to the arota. bypassing lungs
functions of lymphatics
important role in circulation.
