Leukocytes (white blood cells) i. Granular 1. Neutrophils 2. Eosinophils 3. Basophils ii. Agranular 1. Monocytes 2. Lymphocytes III. Thrombocytes (platelets) 2. The function of the blood is: I. To Transport oxygen from lungs to the cells of the body II. Transports carbon dioxide from the cells to the lungs for excretion III. Transports nutrients, ion and water from the digestive tract to cells IV. Transports waste products from cells to kidneys and sweat glands V. Transports hormones to target organs and enzymes to body cells VI. Regulates body pH through its buffers and amino acids in its plasma VII. Helps regulate normal body temperature and water content of cells VIII. Helps prevent fluid loss through the clotting mechanism IX. Protects against foreign microbes and toxins through its combat cells or leukocytes

Unformatted text preview: 3. Hemoglobin is made of the protein globin and a pigment called heme. The pigment heme contains four iron atoms that combine with the oxygen in the lungs. In the tissues of the body, the oxygen is released and the protein globin now combines with the carbon dioxide from the interstitial fluids and carries it to the lungs where it is released. 4. The four categories of ABO blood groups are: I. Only A II. Only B III. Both A and B IV. Neither A or B 5. An antibody of one type will react with an antigen of the same type and cause agglutination, the clumping of the red blood cells. Anatomy & Physiology 6. The clotting mechanism goes to a ruptured blood vessel and attracts thrombocytes to the site of injury. Chapter 14 1) 5 2) 7 3) 6 4) 1 5) 3 6) 2 7) 11 8) 4 9) 8 10) 12 Chapter 15 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
