  • 3. WHITE BLOOD CELL•Ward off infection. These cells, which come in many shapesand sizes, are vital to the immune system. When the body isfighting off infection, it makes them in ever-increasingnumbers. Still, compared to the number of red blood cells inthe body, the number of white blood cells is low.

  • 6.  Their endothelial linings are only one cell thick. These microvessels, measuring 5-10 μm in diameter, connect arterioles and venules, and enable the exchange of water, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and many other nutrients and waste chemical substances between blood and surrounding tissues.
  • 7. ARTERIES -Elastic blood vessels that carry blood away from heart. -Delivers oxygen and nutrient to the rest of the bodies.
  • 8. CAPILLARIES in the body‑Smallest blood vessels - -Enables the exchange of water, oxygen and carbondioxide. Also, other nutrients and waste chemicalsubstance between blood and surrounding tissues
  • 9. VEINS to the heart-Carries blood-Carries deoxygenated blood from tissues to the heart-Veins are closer to skin that contains valves to keepblood flowing
