Liz AP2 T1 Blood

AP2 ST120 Blood Test Review

Plasma proteins responsible for blood clotting Fibrinogen
Plasma minus its clotting factors Serum
Platelets AKA Thrombocytes
Nongranular WBC Monocytes
Blood minus its formed elements Plasma
Process that Neutrophils use to engulf microorganisms to destroy it Phagocytosis
Blood test performed that tells surgeon about volume of RBS in Pts blood Hematocrit
Process that monocytes use to destroy microogranisms Phagocytosis
Responsible for making blood cells for the body Myeloid tissues
Formed when the red pigment in RBCs unites with oxygen Oxyhemoglobin
Pernicious Anemia is C/B Vit B12 deficiency
Can be identified by the condition that causes the blood to become thick and not flow properly Polycythemia
Condition that occurs when a clot dislodges and circulates through the bloodstream Embolism
Blood clot stays in places where it is formed Thrombus
Surgeons sometimes prescribe Vit K before surgery to make sure Pts blood will Clot properly
Normal Plasma Protein in blood Fibrinogen
What has to be a normal amount present in blood when an injury occurs to a blood vessel so the clot process will occur Calcium
Granulocytic and protect the body irritants that cause allergies Eosinophils
Universal Recipient AB
Universal Donor O
Globulins include antibodies
Antibodies react with their antigen, they tend to Clump or Agglutinate
Primary function of WBS To defend body from Microorganisms
Pernicious Anemia is C/B Lack of Intrinsic Factor in the stomach (NOT lack of Iron in the diet).
RBCs do NOT have a nucleus (nonnucleated)
Formation of new blood cells Hematopoiesis
Pt has Type O blood, what type of blood can they receive? Only Type O
Pt had Type B blood, what type of blood can they receive? Type B and O
Malignant ds in which the # of WBCs increases tremendously Leukemia
AIDS Ds characterized by marked leukopenia
Plasma is 92% water
Which blood type contains neither A or B antibodies AB
Anemia Group of disease conditions c/b an inability of the blood to carry sufficient oxygen to the body cells
Pt has Type A, what type can be transferred to the pt Type A and O
Type of tissue is better known as Red Bone Marrow Myeloid tissue
NOT a Granular WBC Monocytes (Neutrophils, Eosinophils, and Basophils are)
The term Rh is used because the antigen was first discovered in the Rhesus Monkey (For Future Reference, it's the Rh Factor is NOT an antigen, it's a protein).
Final steps in the clotting is to change ___ to ____ Fibrinogen to Fibrin
Erythroblastosis fetalis occurs when an Rh- mother carries an Rh+ baby
Type of anemia is C/B a reduction in RBC numbers following destruction of the blood-forming elements in bone marrow Aplastic
Over 70% of whole blood is composed of formed elements FALSE
Plasma protein albumin Helps thicken blood and helps maintain blood volume (Both A & B)
Platelets AKA Thrombocytes
RBCs AKA Erythrocytes
Hemoglobin that is united to oxygen Oxyhemoglobin
Pt is identified as having an elevated eosinophil count, what may be indicated? They have an allergic condition
Abnormally low WBC count Leukopenia
NOT a main plasma gas N (O2 and CO2 are).
Hemorrhagic anemia is C/B Trauma or internal bleeding
Neutrophils and Monocytes engulf microbes by Phagocytosis
