  27. 42. Activated Platelets
  28. 44. Formation of Platelets <ul><li>Platelets form from hemopoietic adult stem cells called hemocytoblasts, they become megakaryoblasts, which in turn form membrane bound cytoplasmic fragments.(platelets) </li></ul><ul><li>Average life span of platelets: 7 days </li></ul>
  29. 46. Blood Types (or Groups) <ul><li>Blood type depends on the type of agglutinogens present in the RBCs. </li></ul><ul><li>Agglutination means to stick together </li></ul><ul><li>Agglutinogens are self-antibodies. </li></ul><ul><li>Agglutinins (antibodies): Plasma antibodies can cause agglutination of RBCs with specific agglutinogens. </li></ul><ul><li>Transfusion reactions: agglutination or sticking together of agglutinogens and agglutinins of incompatible blood. </li></ul>

  33. 51. Erythroblastosis Fetalis <ul><li>If the mother is Rh negative and has been exposed to Rh positive blood, her blood will have the anti Rh agglutinin in the plasma. </li></ul><ul><li>If the fetus is Rh positive, the mother’s anti Rh agglutinin will pass through the placenta and cause agglutination of RBCs, condition called erythroblastosis fetalis. </li></ul>

  39. 61. Blood and the Whole Body <ul><li>Plasma links tissues of the body by transporting material throughout the body to maintain homeostasis. </li></ul><ul><li>RBCs transport O2 and CO2 </li></ul><ul><li>WBC are important in the body’s defense mechanisms. </li></ul><ul><li>Functions of the blood depend on respiratory, endocrine and urinary system. </li></ul><ul><li>Blood must flow continuously to maintain stability. </li></ul>
  40. 62. Blood Disorders <ul><li>RBCs disorders: </li></ul><ul><li>Anemia: loss of total oxygen carrying capacity by the RBCs due to either a decrease of hemoglobin or a decrease in RBCs.
