Erythrocyte Red blood cell
Erythropoietin (EPO) Chemical produced by the kidneys to stimulate red blood cell production when the oxygen blood level is low
Fibrin A solid protein fiber necessary for blood clot formation
Fibrinogen Protein dissolved in plasma that is the precursor to fibrin
Formed elements The cells and cell parts found in blood
Granulocyte Any of 3 types of leukocytes containing small granules that differ in color when stained (neutrophils, basophils, eosinophils)
Hematocrit A test that measures the percentage of erythrocytes to whole blood
Hemocytoblast A starting cell for the production of all the formed elements; stem cell
Hemoglobin A red, complex protein that is made of four chains of amino acids found in red blood cells and that functions to carry oxygen
Hemopoiesis Blood production (hemo-blood, poiesis-make)
Hemostasis 3 step process (vascular spasm, platelet plug formation, and coagulation) that stop bleeding
