1. How does the volume of blood in your body compare to the volume of fluid in a two-liter bottle of soda? In the average-sized male the blood volume is 5-6 liters and 4-5 in the adult female. (Pg. 616)
2. What is the significance of a lower-than-normal hematocrit? A higher-than-normal hematocrit? Lower-than-normal hematocrit indicates anemia. Higher-than-normal hematocrit indicates polycythemia. (Pg. 619)
3. How is the development of lymphocytes unique when compared to the development of the other formed elements? B Lymphocytes develop in red bone marrow, T lymphocytes develop in red bone marrow and mature in the thymus; the other formed elements develop in red bone marrow.
4. How are red blood cells able to squeeze through capillaries that are smaller in diameter than they are? The cell membrane is strong and flexible, so it can deform without rupturing the cell. (pg. 622)
5. Why do red blood cells live for only about 120 days? Because of the wear and tear their plasma membranes undergo as they squeeze through blood capillaries. (pg. 622)
6. What is erythropoiesis? What factors speed up and slow down erythropoiesis? Erythropoiesis is production of RBCs. Erythropoiesis is speeded up when oxygen delivery to the kidneys falls and slows down when there is sufficient oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. (pg. 624)
7. What would happen if a person with type B blood were given a transfusion of type O Blood? Nothing would happen, because type O blood is a compatible blood donor for type B blood. (pg. 627)
8. During an anatomy and physiology exam you are asked to view white blood cells in prepared slides of standard human blood smears. Based on the observations below, what is the name of this WBC? A. WBC has a round nucleus…...

...“Learning About Myself” Cindy Radford Nursing Analysis, NUR 2430 Ms. Phyllis Hosey November 22, 2011 “Learning About Myself” In developing ideas for this paper, I have learned a lot about myself. I have learned that I am a lot more complex than I originally thought. I have a multitude of strengths and weaknesses and I think I could make a positive impact on the nursing world after graduation. I am in the process now of learning how to use my strengths for greater good and turn my weaknesses into something positive that I can use to build on. In order to discuss some of my strengths and weaknesses, I have to first tell you about why I wanted to become a nurse. When I was growing up, I had a bit of a rocky childhood. I was bounced between parents a lot and moved so much it was hard to make, and keep, friends. At the age of five, I was left at my grandparent’s home for the weekend by a mother that never came back for me. She left the country and left me behind. From that point on, I was raised by my grandmother and grandfather. They were wonderful to me! They saw to it that I was raised with manners and instilled in me that education was very important. I always knew they chose to raise me and that made them very special in my life. I worked my entire life to be able to do for them like they had for me over the years and when I was 25 years old, I got the chance. My grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. His health deteriorated quickly and...

About Me

... her husband, but she did not acknowledge it as being a problem. After the first poem, Claudia gives a set of important flashbacks that could have led to her divorce and also what happened right after. She emphasizes that the lack of communication was the cause of the divorce, and she gives further examples to support her reasoning behind it in “Eight Ball” (13) and “Pitching Horseshoes” (14). In “Eight Ball”, Claudia’s husband was very good at playing pool and when he played he completely ignored his wife even if she was always right next to him. “Insisted on one more, so I chalked the cue-the bored blue- broke, scratched. / It was always possible for you to run the table, leave me” (3-4). This shows how much he cares for her, which is very little. Claudia tells the reader that when her husband was not with his friends, he would pitch horseshoes instead of spending time with Claudia. In “Pitching Horseshoes”, Claudia said “into the hard earth yourself, you paced back and forth as if there were a decision to make, and you were the one to make it” (7), so she suggests the idea that her husband used that time alone to question his marriage. “Metaphor” (17) is the climax of this section, for it is in this poem that shows how the fight went, although it leaves me with only speculations of how the fight started. “We didn’t know what woke us-just cold moving, the lighter than our breathing” (1). In these lines, Claudia does not know herself how it started, and the spark was so...

...Activity 1: Tell Me about Blood Low hematocrit levels, AKA anemia, indicate a low percentage of red blood cells in the blood. The effect of a bacterial infection would be a decrease in hematocrit levels. Leukocytes can be formed in several locations thought the body. The thymus, bone marrow, and spleen all produce leukocytes. The other formed elements are developed through red blood cells or fragmentation of megakaryocytes in the bone marrow. Erythropoiesis is the formation of red blood cells. Erythropoiesis speeds up when oxygen delivery to the kidneys is reduced. This triggers a negative feedback system that speeds up the process until kidney oxygen levels return to normal. Type O blood is known as the universal donor because any other blood type can safely receive a transfusion, with no negative effects from this type. If a person with B blood received a transfusion of O blood everything would be fine. A. This WBC is a lymphocyte. Its primary function is producing antibodies. T lymphocytes attack infected or cancerous cells. B. This WBC is a basophil. Its primary function is to help mediate inflammation C. This WBC is a monocyte. Its primary function is phagocytosis of bacteria and viruses. D. This WBC is a neutrophil. Its primary function is phagocytosis of microorganisms. E. This WBC is an eosinophil. Its primary function is Phagocytosis of parasites and involvement in allergic reactions. 6. The level of leukocytes would be higher in an individual who has been......

...Unit 1. Case Study 1. Tell Me About Blood 1. What is the significance of a lower-than-normal hematocrit? What is the effect of a bacterial infection on the hematocrit? (PAGE 618 619) First, hematocrit (HCT) is the percentage of blood made up of red blood cells. Usually measured by centrifuging a blood sample in a graduated tube and then reading the volume of red blood cells and dividing it by the total volume of blood in a sample. A significant drop in hematocrit is an indication of anemia (lower-than-normal number of red blood cells (Jenkins & Tortora, 2013). A bacterial infection would increase the production of white blood cells to fight off the infection. The hematocrit would have a thicker buffer layer (white blood cells) causing the red blood cell production to slightly decrease which would decrease the ratio of red blood cells to whole blood volume. 2. Compare the development of lymphocytes with the development of the other formed elements. (PAGES 629 631 632 769) Lymphocytes and the other formed elements are developed from pluripotent stem cells. The pluripotent stem cells generate myeloid stem cells and lymphoid stem cells. Myeloid stem cells start and complete their development in red bone marrow and give rise to red blood cells, platelets, eosinophils, basophils, neutrophils, and monocytes. Lymphoid stem cells begin development in the red bone marrow, but some are completed in the lymphatic tissues, where they give rise to lymphocytes. The B cell...

Tell Me About Blood

...Tell Me about Blood Lucrezia Stoner ITT, Strongsville Tell Me about Blood 1) A lower than normal hematocrit or anemia means that the percentage of red blood cells is below the lower limits of normal. It could be as a result of internal bleeding, nutritional problem or over hydration. 2) When there is a bacterial infection, the hematocrit is raised. Lymphocytes are types of white blood cells. They are the body’s primary immune defense and move through the lymph in response to antigens and pathogens. T-cells originate in the bone marrow and migrate to the thymus to mature; B-cells also originate in the bone marrow and migrate to the lymph tissues to mature. 3) Erythropoiesis is the production of red blood cells. This process begins with myeloid cells that differentiate into myoblasts (an immature white blood cell of the bone marrow) orproerythrocytes (an immature red blood cell). There are several factors which influence and regulate erythropoiesis: Erythropoietin- (EPO) a hormone secreted by the kidneys which stimulates the bone marrow to increase differentiation of proerythrocytes and thus increase erythrocyte production. Intrinsic factor- or erythrocyte-maturing factor, which the stomach secretes to facilitate erythrocyte maturation. Vitamin B12- also called the extrinsic factor, which interacts with the intrinsic factor. Iron- an essential component of hemoglobin (the protein complex within erythrocytes that binds with oxygen) 4) A person with type O...

...English assignment 1. Characterise the victim/girl. The victim is dressed like a hugger. If you look at the close it seems dirty, and it looks like she got raped. She looks poor, but also like she could be pretty if she had taken car of herself. If you ask Grace McColl she looked like nobody had taken car of her, like her parents were dead, or didn’t existed for her. She has had a difficult childhood, and has been let down so many times, so she doesn’t really trust other people anymore. And the way she talks to people isn’t as pretty as it could be. 2. Characterise Grace McColl. Grace McColl is a very strong willed detective, who keeps her mind on the job and the goal (to find the killer). She like her job and like to help other people. Just like the victim/girl, she also had a difficult childhood but she manage to get over it and got an education and a real life job. She can relate to the victim, and can tell a lot of things because of that. She know how it is for the girl, she know how it is when you can’t trust anyone. 3. Discuss the difference in gender roles between the victim and Grace McColl. The difference between Grace and the victim is that they both had a hard and difficult childhood. The effect it had on the victim was just a lot different, than the effect it had on Grace. Grace grows up and got a job, and a life. The victim ended up just like her parents. It’s like the social heritage, some manage to break it, and some don’t. some place they......

About Me

...The process piece I chose to revise was my About Me page. Due to the relatively small length of the piece (two paragraphs), especially in comparison to longer papers like the Familiar Genre Analysis (four pages), doing a momentous amount of revisions is unpractical. However, the changes I did make significantly altered the piece. To start off, I made some corrections to various middle and lower order concerns, like grammar (added “am” before “from” in the first sentence) and transitions (first sentence of second paragraph links the two, creating flow that was previously absent). After that, I focused on these, more important higher order concerns: audience, pathos and genre conventions. Previously, the reference to the audience for my blog was vague and practically missing. By adding the fact that “one of the primary uses of this blog is for my English 1020 class at Wayne State University,” I was able to hone in on my prospective audience: my professor and fellow classmates. Next, I added in more details about myself to help the reader feel better connected to me. By stating where I lived through my life and what country I identity myself as being from, as well as one of my biggest goals in life, I am allowing future readers to know me and my writing, not just the latter. Finally, I attempted to improve my use of genre conventions. About Me pages typically include a reason why the writer started a blog, so I included that. Also, I tried to be more interactive with my...

...Case Study 1: Tell Me About Blood ITT Technical Institute Navid Momeny Case Study 1: Tell Me About Blood 1. What is the significance of lower-than-normal hematocrit? What is the effect of a bacterial infection on the hematocrit? A lower-than-normal hematocrit tells us that a person has anemia. A large amount of white blood cells due to cancer or some type of infection, vitamin or mineral deficiencies, or some type of blood loss. A bacterial infection will cause the hematocrit test show more white blood cells in the blood because it is trying to fight off the infection. 2. Compare the development of lymphocytes with the development of the other formed elements. Lymphocytes are produced in the red bone marrow and some can be produced in lymphatic organs like the lymph nodes. B cell lymphocytes are in the red bone marrow where they live out their life cycle. T cell lymphocytes begin in the red bone marrow but later mature in the thymus. 3. What is erythropoiesis? Which factors speed up and slow down erythropoiesis? Erythropoiesis produce red blood cells. The amount of oxygen being carried would affect the speed of erythropoiesis. 4. Explain what would happen if a person with type B blood were given a transfusion of type O blood. A person that has type B blood can receive a transfusion from a person with type O blood because there are no antigens and the person with B blood will not have any antibodies that will attach the O blood. 5.

...When I was in my primary school days, I was the top few students in my class, sometimes in the whole cohort. My classmates were envious of my results, but it didn’t last long. As I grow older, I got exposed to things like computer gaming and console gaming. I started spending more and more time on gaming then studying and lead to the plunge in my results. Had a borderline result for my PSLE result. Went to secondary school, was still addicted to gaming. But at that time, I was enthusiastic about my CCA back then, Badminton. I could say that I spend more time on the Badminton court than anywhere else. We had training thrice a week, and even sparring sessions on Saturdays. My normal weekday routine would be to go for lessons, training, back home and gaming. So I wasn’t really spending my time wisely for the gaming part. Which I seriously neglected my studies then. My results were borderline throughout my whole secondary education period, still manage to get a Polytechnic to pursue my diploma. Enrolled into Nanyang Polytechnic, taking Electronics, Computer & Communication course. The name make it seems complicated, but that’s the thing that lead me to choose this course. Made a group of close friends within the first week of school. During test and exam periods, we will get together and do some revision to help with each other and clear our doubts. We all did quite well for the first test. Then comes the Semester Exam, where I made a stupid mistake. I was working as a...

... Unit 1 Case Study 1: Tell Me about Blood Christie Wolford Breckenridge School of Nursing The normal range of hematocrit (percentage of total blood volume occupied by red blood cells) is 38-46 for (average) females and 40-54 in (average) males, a lower than normal hematocrit indicates anemia; a less than normal percentage of red blood cells occupying the blood volume, red blood cells carry oxygen. When there is a low hematocrit that means that there is not enough oxygen being circulated throughout the body because there are not enough red blood cells. When there is a bacterial infection the hematocrit are not affected, red blood cells are transporters, not defenders. Hematocrit is only the percentage of red blood cells contained within a sample and no other cells. The bacterial infection will cause there to be an increase of white blood cells, as they are the ones on the “front line” of invasion protection. (Jenkins, Tortora, 2013) Unlike red blood cells; white blood cells have nuclei and a full set of other organelles, but no hemoglobin. (this is a given as hemoglobin is what gives red cells their color)Lymphocytes are agranular leukocytes, meaning they possess cytoplasmic granules. All formed elements develop from pluripotent stem cells, however lymphocytes derive from lymphoid stem cells rather than myeloid stem cells.
