What is included in the hematological system blood, bone marrow, Reticuloendothelial system (spleen, lymph system)

Fx of macrophages defend, remove old/damaged cells, stimulate inflammatory process, present antigen to immune system
what is cellular immunity T cells kill foreign cells directly
what is humoral immunity plasma cells produce antibodies called immunoglobulins that destroy
How is platelet production regulated by thrombopoietin which stimulates produciton of megakaryocytes from myeloid stem cells. Lifespan of 7-10 days

what is a lymp system adjunct organ liver - filters, produces pro-coagulants, stores excess iron, excretes bilirubin to common duct
what is hemostasis and what are two responses preventing blood loss: primary-vascular, platelets form plug secondary- intrinsic/extrinsic pathway clotting with fibrin
Once fibrin clot is formed and injured vessel is repaired what happens? fibrinolytic(lyse fibrin clot) system, plasminogen(protein to dissolve clots) to lyse fibrin(basis of blood clot).
What does hematocrit measure % of blood volume consisting of RBCs
What are hematemesis, melena, polycythemia, hemarthrosis, petechiae/pupur hematemesis: bloody vomit melena: blood in stool polycythemia:overproduction RBCs Hemarthrosis: blood in joints petechiae/purpura: red/purple hemorrhages

what is activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) 30-45sec
What is D-dimer fragment fibrin indicating clotting activity
What is anemia Condition that is deficiency of # of RBCs, hemoglobin, or hematocrit. Most common hemotologic condition in elderly
Anemia is defect is these three things loss of RBCs, decr production of RBCs, incr destruction of RBCs, blood loss, deficient iron, B12, folate, hemolytic
What look for in CBC for anemia Hgb, Hct, reticulocyte county, MCV, RDW
what do you give for active hemorrhage? For anemia? whole blood b/c of volume adn clotting factors pRBCs
what are morphology of RBCs in anemia normocytic, normochronmic: normal size, color macrocytic, normochromic: lg size, normal color microcytic, hypochromic: sm size, pale color macrocytic, hypochromic: lg size, pale color
s/s of anemia sudden = more devastating weakness, fatique, malaise, pallor, tachy, dizzy, dyspnea, exertional dyspnea
tx for s/s conserve energy....drink meals. Iron rich foods: organ meats, beans, green leafy vegs, molasses, raisins
What is sever anemia hct <6
what are complications of severe anemia heart failure, angina, paresthesias, delirium(no O2 to brain). Inf,inflammatory conditions can cause low iron
what are some findings wtih anemia brittle hair/nails, not jaundice, smooth, pale, sore tongue, burning stomatitis

What is first tx for DIC treat underlying cause, then heparin, then platelets/pRBCs
How are transfusions given IV
What is left shift incr of immature neutrophils, band cells from the bone marrow.
what is myelopoiesis mature neutrophils formed from myeloid blast cells, depends on cytokines
where is albumin produced liver, helps with fluid balance
What three factors can help tell if anemia is from destruction or inadequate production 1. marrows ability to decr RBC AEB incr reticulocyte count 2. amt of immature RBC in marrow 3. end products presence/absence, bilirubin level
