    • 45% rbc and wbc
    • 55% plasma
  21. plasma protien
    • serum globulin- immulogical responses.
    • help with fluids
  22. rbc
    • 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
  23. BP
    smallest cells, clotting mechanism.

  26. WBC
    engolphing forign substances and make antibodies.
  27. antigen
    • substances (protien) stimulate organisms immune system to make antibody
    • found in rbc
  28. antibody
    • produced by immune system that destroys or innactivats a particular antigen
    • found in plasma
  29. agultination
    process of blood clotting
  30. what starts the clotting process
    throblplastin released by damaged bp
  31. functions of the heart
    creates pressure inorder to pump the blood through out the body

  35. atria recive
    blood from the body
  36. veins
    bring blood to heart
  37. artery
    take blood away from the heart
  38. superior vena cava
