LAB 9Cardiovascular System IBlood and the Immune SystemObjectives:To Identify the cellular and plasma constituents of blood and the functions of each.To know the difference between plasma and serum.To be able to describe the following tests: packed cell volume (hematocrit),hemoglobin estimation, clotting time.To know the normal range of values for these tests for men and women.To identify erythrocytes and leukocytes on a Wright’s stain slide.To be able to give a rough estimate of the relative proportion of red blood cells towhite blood cells.To know the definition of differential count.To know the normal range of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets for menand women.To understand changes in blood cells that occur with sickle cell anemia, irondeficiency anemia (microcytic, hypochromic anemia), pernicious anemia, leukemiaand lymphoma, and to be able to recognize slides of these conditions.To understand the difference between an antibody and an antigen.To understand that white blood cells form the basis of our immune response andprotect us from foreign invaders by their phagocytic activity or by making specificantibodies or by cytolytic activity.To define the ABO and Rh blood grouping classifications.To be able to define the antigen-antibody agglutination reaction as the basis for theABO and Rh Blood grouping system.To be able to determine the ABO and Rh blood type of a sample of artificial blood.To understand viable donor recipient combinations used in successful bloodtransfusions.To define erythroblastosis fetalis as a harmful antigen-antibody reaction and to knowthe mother-child condition under which this may occur.To know the use and function of RhoGAM.156
Lecture topics associated with this lab:Review the purpose of the following clinical tests: hematocrit, hemoglobinestimation, and clotting time. give the normal values expected. Describethe procedures used.Review the normal values for the three types of blood cells, their appearances,and their functions. explain the Wright staining procedure, and how todo a differential.Describe what occurs to the blood cells in conditions like sickle-cell anemia,iron- poor blood, pernicious anemia, leukemia, and lymphoma.Describe the resulting symptoms of these diseases.Describe the roles of leukocytes in protection against pathogens—asphagocytes and as antibody producers. Describe the specificrelationship between a given antigen and its antibody, including waysantibodies are used to disable or destroy an antigen.Teach the dynamics involved in the antigen-antibody agglutination reactionfound when incompatible blood is mixed. Outline the possible bloodtypes of compatible donor-recipient pairs in the ABO and Rh system.
