Blood - Body contains 5 Liters (L) - Made of cells, cell parts and plasma (the fluid part of the blood) - Red + White blood cells.
Red Blood Cells - Most abundant cells in the body. - Contain hemoglobin which makes cells red and transports oxygen (O2) - Contains Iron (Fe) and O2 bonds to the FE. - Made in bone marrow
White Blood Cells - Destroy pathogens (bacteria, viruses, and other microscopic particles that make you sick) - Some WBC's engulf pathogens. - Some WBC release antibodies which destroy pathogens - Some engulf body cells that are dead or damaged. - Made in the BM.
WBC's contain more _____? Lysosomes because they are responsible to attacking and destroying foreign particles. Lysosomes contain digestive enzymes.
Platelets - Only live 5-10 days. - Clump together when their is a cut so less blood is lost.

"A" blood type has... A antigens and B antibodies
"B" blood type has... B antigens and A antibodies
"AB" blood type has... AB antigens and NO antibodies
"O" blood type has... NO antigens and AB antibodies
