Arteries have three layers in their walls while arterioles have : 2
Blood cells make up approximately __ % of the blood volume. 45%
Blood cells responsible for clotting are called: Platelets or thrombycytes
Blood cells responsible for fighting –off infections. White blood cells or Leukocytes
Blood cells which contain hemoglobin. Erythrocytes or red blood cells
Blood type __ is said to be the universal donor. Type O Blood

**Name six functions of Blood 1. Trasport 02, co2, food, wates, hormones, etc 2. temperature regulation 3. control of pH 4. Control of water balance 5. Defense against infection and immunity 6. Repair and regeneration processes (healing processes)
Normal pH of blood is : 7.3 to 7.4
Outer layer of an artery or vein is called the: Tunica Adventitia or Tunica Externa
Portion of the blood that is about95% water: Plasma
Portion of the blood that is about 95% water: Plasma
Process by which a blood cell surrounds, engulfs and destroys foreign substances: phagocytosis

Region Immediately inferior to the hypochondriac region of the abdomen: Umbilical Region
Study of Blood is called : Hematology
Study of the circulatory system, including the blood lymph, hear, arteries, veins, and lymph vessels is called: Angiology
Study of the body that deals with the blood, heart, arteries, veins, and lymphatics is called: Circulatory System.
The term visceral refers to: to the organs contained within a body cavity.
