Types of WBC’s “Noel Lopez Moved East, Brah” Neutrophils 55-70% of wbc Increase o Acute bacterial infection o Fungal infection Decrease o Sepsis o Radiotherapy, aplastic anemia, chemo and flu Important o Mostly segmented (lesser amounts being bands, or immature) o Bands shouldn’t be found in differential o A left shift indicates an increase in banded (immature) neutrophils. This can indicate an infectious process. Lympohocytes 20-40% of WBC increase o chronic bacterial infection o viruses o bacteria such as hepatitis decrease o leukemia o sepsis important o t lymphocytes start cell mediated immunity o b lymphocytes start humoral immunity monocytes 2-8% of wbc’s increase o chronic inflammation o TB o Viral infection (mono, mumps and measles) Decrease o Corticosteroids Eosinophils 1-4% of WBC’s increase o allergic reaction o parasitic infection o Hodgkin’s disease

o chronic inflammation decrease stress corticosteroids Basophils 0.5-1% of WBC’s increase o leukemia decrease o acute allergic reaction o hyperthyroidism INFLAMMATION- Stages of inflammatory process o Stage 1 The Macrophage is the major cell involved With broken skin, the injured tissue and leukocytes secrete histamines, serotoniins, and kinins. (> redness and warmth to the area) o Stage 2 Cellular exudate is priarmy Neutrophilia (>neutrophils) Usually occurs within 12 hours The broken area begin to release cytokines which stimulate more macrophages and the release of new monocytes.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
