TermDefinition
Pericardium the membrane enclosing the heart, consisting of an outer fibrous layer and an inner double layer of serous membrane.
Veins any of the tubes forming part of the blood circulation system of the body, carrying in most cases oxygen-depleted blood toward the heart.
Capillaries any of the fine branching blood vessels that form a network between arterioles and Venules.
Arteries any of the muscular-walled tubes forming part of the circulation system by which blood (mainly that which has been oxygenated) is conveyed from the heart to all parts of the body.
Oxygenated supplied, treated, or enriched with oxygen.
Deoxygenated remove oxygen from.
Agglutination a reaction in which particles (as red blood cells or bacteria) suspended in a liquid collect into clumps and which occurs especially as a serological response to a specific antibody.
Ventricles each of the two main chambers of the heart, left and right.
Atria each of the two upper cavities of the heart from which blood is passed to the ventricles. The right atrium receives deoxygenated blood from the veins of the body; the left atrium receives oxygenated blood from the pulmonary vein.
Septum a partition separating two chambers, such as that between the nostrils or the chambers of the heart.
Valves a membranous fold in a hollow organ or tubular structure, such as a blood vessel or the digestive tract, that maintains the flow of the contents in one direction by closing in response to any pressure from reverse flow.
Antibodies a blood protein produced in response to and counteracting a specific antigen. Antibodies combine chemically with substances which the body recognizes as alien, such as bacteria, viruses, and foreign substances in the blood.
Pulse a rhythmical throbbing of the arteries as blood is propelled through them, typically as felt in the wrists or neck.
Plasma the colorless fluid part of blood, lymph, or milk, in which corpuscles or fat globules are suspended.
Platelets a small colorless disk-shaped cell fragment without a nucleus, found in large numbers in blood and involved in clotting.
White blood cells a colorless cell that circulates in the blood and body fluids and is involved in counteracting foreign substances and disease.
Red blood cells a red blood cell that (in humans) is typically a biconcave disc without a nucleus. Erythrocytes contain the pigment hemoglobin, which imparts the red color to blood, and transport oxygen and carbon dioxide to and from the tissues.
Vaccine a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease.
Immunity the ability of an organism to resist a particular infection or toxin by the action of specific antibodies or sensitized white blood cells.
Cancer/Leukema Cancer: a disease caused by an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a part of the body. Leukemia: a malignant progressive disease in which the bone marrow and other blood-forming organs produce increased numbers of immature or abnormal leukocytes.
