Converted to fibrin during clottingFibrinogen
Other Plasma Proteins include:Insulin
Temporarily increase the blood volume: dextran and Ringer’s solutionPlasma Expanders
Isotonic saline containing lactate ions
– Effects fade as liver and muscles absorb and metabolize lactate
Ringer’s solution
measures the percentage of whole blood occupied by formed elements (Commonly referred to as the volume of packed red cells)Hematocrit
After erythropoietin (EPO) stimulationHematocrit increases
Biconcave disc, allows stacking, bending and flexing, lack organelles

Typically degenerate in about 120 days

They are either phagocytized or lysed

Structure of RBCs
______ is a globular protein, formed from two pairs of polypeptide subunits.

Each subunit contains a molecule of heme which reversibly binds an oxygen molecule

Molecules of hemoglobin account for 95% of the _____ in RBCsproteins
Accounts for RBCs ability to bind and transport:
– Oxygen
– Carbon dioxide
Heme stripped of iron and converted to biliverdin, then bilirubin > Iron is recycled by being stored in phagocytes, or transported throughout the blood stream bound to transferrin.RBC Recycling
the formation of bloodHemopoiesis or Hematopoeisis
the formation of new red blood cellsErythropoeisis
Process of new red blood cell formationspeeds up with in the presence of ________.EPO (AKA: Erythropoeisis stimulating hormone)
Vertebrae, Sternum, Ribs, Skull, Scapula, Pelvis, and Proximal limb bonesmyeloid tissues
Deficiency of RBCs or hemoglobinAnemia
Oxygen deficiency as a result of anemiahypoxia
Deficiency of RBCs due to Vitamin B12 deficiencyPernicious anemia
Autoimmune disorderHemolytic anemia
Abundance of over-sized erythrocytes due to impaired erythropoiesis (Often the result of Vitamin B12 deficiency)Macrocytic anemia
Abnormally small erythrocytes
– Found in iron-deficient anemia
Microcytic anemia
– Over abundance of RBCs
– Similar effects to blood-doping
– Due to excessive or prolonged secretion of EPO
– Affects blood viscosity
Increase in the number of reticulocytes in circulating bloodReticulocytosis
Non-specific immunity, such as phagocytosis, is a function of which blood cells?neutrophils, eosinophils, and monocytes
The combination of plasma and formed elements is calledwhole blood
Each hemoglobin molecule containsfour iron atoms
The enzyme that can digest fibrin and dissolve a clot isplasmin
Plasma proteins essential in body defense are theimmunoglobulins
White blood cells that release histamine at the site of an injury arebasophils
A substance that activates plasminogen might be useful tocause clot dissolution to proceed faster
The clumping of red blood cells, when the specific antibody against the antigen on the cells is added, is calledagglutination
More than 95 percent of the protein in a red blood cell ishemoglobin
If a patient has thrombocytopenia, the best therapy is infusion of __________.purified platelets
involves a cascade of reactions leading to the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrincoagulation
Granulocytes form inred bone marrow
The function of platelets is to assist in theprocess of hemostasis
The process of fibrinolysisdissolves clots.
The common pathway of coagulation begins with theactivation of Factor X, production of prothrombin activator.
What would you expect to see in increased numbers in a peripheral blood sample after donating a unit of blood?reticulocytes
People with type O blood are considered “universal donors” for transfusions because __________.their red blood cells lack A and B surface antigens
Thyroid-binding globulin is an example of which kind of plasma protein?hormone-binding
The plasma protein involved in blood clotting isfibrinogen
The process of lymphopoiesis occurs mainly in thered bone marrow
– granules contain heparin
– constitute about 1 percent of WBCs
– attract other defense cells
– granules contain histamine
The extrinsic pathway of coagulation is initiated by therelease of tissue factor (Factor III) by damaged endothelium.
