Decreased oxygen carrying capacity Table 16-3 Leukocyte Production Leukopoiesis Colony-stimulating factors (CSFs) Produced by various cells: endothelial cells fibroblasts in bone marrow leukocytes Depending on need, differentiation of a particular type of leukocyte will occur Example: Bacterial infection Neutrophils Viral infection Lymphocytes Parasitic worms Eosinophils Platelet (Thrombocyte) Production Thrombopoiesis Thrombopoietin Made in liver, kidney Regulates production of megakaryocytes Hemostasis Prevention of blood loss 3 steps: 1. Vasoconstriction 2. Platelet plug 3. Coagulation (clot formation) Vasoconstriction Endothelium releases chemicals that cause vasoconstriction of blood vessel to decrease blood flow (and decrease blood loss) Platel...
