Two types of cells produced by leukopoiesis Agranulocytes; Granulocytes
Two types of Agranulocytes monocytes; lymphocytes
Three types of Granulocytes Neutrophils; Basophils; Eosinophils
What are monocytes responsible for? Ingest debris; clean cells
What are the three types of Lymphocytes? B cells and T cells, Natural Killers
B cells are responsible for humoral immunity
T cells are responsible for cellular immunity
Most numerous Granulocytes: Neutrophils
Least numerous Granulocytes: Basophils
2nd most numerous Granulocytes: Eosinophils
Eosinophils are responsible for: Neutralizing toxins
Basophils are responsible for: histamins and heparin
Neutrophils are responsible for: surround and destroy bacteria
Solid components of Blood: RBC; WBC; platelets(thromocytes)
Fragments of cells; initiate blood clotting platelets
soluable blood protein; aids in coagulation: fibrinogen
initiate inflammatory process by increasing blood flow: Histamines (from basophil)
defense against antigen antibody
liquid portion of blood plasma
substance that initiates clot formation: thromboplastin
ingest dead cells macrophages
harmful invader antigen
Main responsibility of Heparin: thining blood, preventing clotting
what are lymphocytes responsible for? protect against infection

a hereditary disorder in which there is an impairment of the blood clotting mechanism hemophilia
abnormal increase of iron in the blood hemosiderosis
a transfusion that is prepared from another individual's blood homologuous transfusion
abnormal increase of WBC leukocytosis
WBC in blood and lymphatic tissues; provides protection from bacteria lymphocytes
cell with a large nucleus; fragments become platelets megakaryocyte
embryonic WBC formed in bone marrow myeloblast

HDN hemolytic disease of the newborn
HIV human immunodeficiency virus
Igs immunoglobulins
ITP idiopathic thrombocytopenia
Anemia associated w/ bone marrow failure; diminshed RBC, WBC & platelets; possibly fatal aplastic anemia
Anemia associated w/ large and deformed RBC w/ diminished production rate and life span folic acid deficiency anemia
Anemia associated w/ premature destruction of RBC, accompanied by jaundice hemolytic anemia
Anemia associated w/ loss of blood volume, caused by acute blood loss hemorrhagic anemia
