1

Increase of wbcs count is called?

Leukocytosis

2

Decrease of all wbc count is called?

Leukopenia

3

General function of wbc?

Control inflammation, control bacteria, provide Immunity, help blood clot or help destroy clots and unwanted clots

4

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)

5

What is a myloblast and promyelocyte?

A large cell with blue cytoplasm and granules

6

Three types of granulocytes?

Eosinophils, neutrophil, basophils

7

Difference between by locate and metmyelocyte?

Metmyelocyte is normal size with a more abundant cytoplasm, normal size nucleus with chromatin

8

Most common immature cell we see in dogs?

Band neutrophil

9

Horseshoe shape neutrophil.

Band neutrophil

10

Has 3-5 lobes neutrophil

A mature neutrophil

11

Where are neutrophils produced then stored?

Bone marrow

12

What happens in the neutrophil proliferating pool.

Cell division

13

What happens in the neutrophil maturation pool?

Maturing not dividing

14

What is stored in the storage pool?

Mature neutrophil

15

What is mnp?

Marginal neutrophil pool- stuck to walls, waiting to help

16

What is found in the circulating neutrophil pool?

On the look out for bad things

17

First line of defense.

Neutrophils in tissues

18

How do neutrophils rid the body of bad things?

Phago and pino cytosis

19

Old neutrophil.

Hyper-segmented neutrophil

20

Number one cell in circulating blood in cats and dogs.

Segmented neutrophil (mature)

21

Life span of mature neutrophil.

7-14 hours

22

The most common Immature cell in dogs?

Band neutrophil

23

Left shift?

Greater than 5% band cells after your final count (lots of Immature cell)

24

Why do left shifts happen?

Increased need for neutrophils

25

More than five segments.

Hyper segmented (right shift)

26

Why do we see hypersegmentstion?

We left it in a coagulant for too long, b12 deficiency

27

Causes of neutrophilia?

Muscle activity, bacterial infections, leukemia types

28

Causes of neutropenia?

Viral infection, bacteria infections, nutritional deficiencies

29

Where are lymphocytes found.

In the pleuripotent cell

30

Second most common cell in circulating blood?

Lymphocytes
