Flashcards in White Blood Cells Deck (92)
Increase of wbcs count is called?
Decrease of all wbc count is called?
General function of wbc?
Control inflammation, control bacteria, provide Immunity, help blood clot or help destroy clots and unwanted clots
What is a white blood cell estimate?
40 power, count number of wbcs per field for ten fields, divide total from 10 fields by 10, multiply by 2000=== wbc/microliter (uL)
What is a myloblast and promyelocyte?
A large cell with blue cytoplasm and granules
Three types of granulocytes?
Eosinophils, neutrophil, basophils
Difference between by locate and metmyelocyte?
Metmyelocyte is normal size with a more abundant cytoplasm, normal size nucleus with chromatin
Most common immature cell we see in dogs?
Horseshoe shape neutrophil.
Has 3-5 lobes neutrophil
A mature neutrophil
Where are neutrophils produced then stored?
What happens in the neutrophil proliferating pool.
What happens in the neutrophil maturation pool?
Maturing not dividing
What is stored in the storage pool?
What is mnp?
Marginal neutrophil pool- stuck to walls, waiting to help
What is found in the circulating neutrophil pool?
On the look out for bad things
First line of defense.
Neutrophils in tissues
How do neutrophils rid the body of bad things?
Phago and pino cytosis
Number one cell in circulating blood in cats and dogs.
Segmented neutrophil (mature)
Life span of mature neutrophil.
The most common Immature cell in dogs?
Greater than 5% band cells after your final count (lots of Immature cell)
Why do left shifts happen?
Increased need for neutrophils
More than five segments.
Hyper segmented (right shift)
Why do we see hypersegmentstion?
We left it in a coagulant for too long, b12 deficiency
Causes of neutrophilia?
Muscle activity, bacterial infections, leukemia types
Causes of neutropenia?
Viral infection, bacteria infections, nutritional deficiencies
Where are lymphocytes found.
In the pleuripotent cell
