Flashcards in Circulatory(blood) Deck (11):
0

Plasma

Composed mainly of water and contains many dissolved substances .glucose ,carbon dioxide hormones ,salt, lipid ,nitrogenous wastes and protein that assist clotting and in the immune response

1

Red blood cells

Biconcave disks with no nucleus and no major organelles, most abundant cell type in blood, transport oxygen through blood , hemoglobin

2

Hemoglobin

An iron containing protein that can bind to oxygen molecules

3

White blood cells

Important fighting off infectious disease such as phagocyte and lymphocytes

4

Platelets

Are not really cells at all; they are packets of cytoplasm that relates the enzyme thromboplastin when they come into contact with a foreign substance within the blood or the rough edges of an open wound

5

What does thromboplastin do?

Sets off a chain reaction that converts fibrinogen, a soluble protein found in the blood plasma, into fibrin, a tough, insoluble fibrous protein that traps red blood cells and thereby forms blood clots that stop blood loss from an open wound

6

Systole

When heart contracts(ventricle )

7

Diastole

When heart relax

8

What is blood type o?

Universal donor

9

What is blood type ab?

Universal recipient

10

Blood type

Red blood cells manufacture proteins called antigens that coat the cell surface . These proteins help the immune system to determine if a cell is a foreign . There is a antigen a and b. Blood type is a codominant trait
