Flashcards in Blood Deck (30):
1

responsible for carrying oxygen bound to hemoglobin to the tissue of the body

erythrocytes

2

affinity for methylene blue which is a basic stain

basophilia

3

affinity for azure dyes (purples) which can result from the oxidation of methylene blue in the mixture

azurophilia

4

affinity for eosin which is an acid stain (yellowish pink)

acidophilia

5

affinity for complex dyes- lilac color

neutrophila

6

young erythrocytes recently released into blood

reticulocytes

7

cells with specific granules that are quite evident by virtue of the fact that they have affinity for specific traits

granulocytes

8

blood cells that don't have specific cytoplasmic granules of granulocytes

agranulocytes

9

nucleus is not composed of identifiable lobes

mononuclear

10

nucleus is composed of two or more district lobes

polymorphonuclear

11

list granulocytes

neutrophil
eosinophil
basophil

12

60-70% of WBC
fist line of cellular defense
nucleus is lumpy, has many lobes

neutrophils

13

1-4% of WBC
allergic reactions
bilobed nucleus
preventing blood clotting

eosinophil

14

0-1% of WBC
secrete histamine
large irregular shaped nucleus
allergic reactions and inflammatory response

basophils

15

list agranulocytes

lymphocytes
monocytes
megakaryocytes

16

produce antibodies

lymphocytes

17

kidney shaped nucleus
differentiate into macrophages

monocytes

18

form platelets
large, irregular nucleus
important in healing of cuts and abrasions
found in red bone marrow

megakaryocytes

19

function in clotting
small

platelets

20

multipotent stem cell that gives rise to all types of blood cells. will divide and form pro erythroblast

hemocytoblast

21

stem cell for erythrocyte line
divides many times to form cells that will become basophilic erythroblasts

proerythoroblast

22

small, synthesizes hemoglobin
divide many times to form polychromatophilic erythroblast

basophilic erythroblast

23

divide many times to form normoblasts

polychromatophilic erythroblast

24

eccentric nucleus
lots of hemoglobin
will divide and get rid of nucleus and form reticulocytes
high rate of hemoglobin synthesis

normoblast

25

young RBC

reticulocyte

26

characteristic of leukemia

myeloblast

27

"PMN"

poly morphonuclear neutrophils

28

causes dilation of blood vessels and in effect makes them leaky

histamine

29

anticoagulant

heparine

30

second most common WBC in normal blood

lymphocytes
