Blood cells

Subject: Blood Cells

What? Blood cells are found in blood. The average human adult has more than 5 liters of blood in his or her body. White blood cells act as single celled organisms and capture foreign objects of the body and kick them out. As a result, it fights off infection. Platelets circulate in the blood and can lead to clotting of the blood. As marrow ages it turns yellow and decreases cellular creation.

Why? History Blood cells are found in blood. Red blood cells carry oxygen to tissues of the body. White blood cells fight infection by acting like single celled organisms and capturing invaders of the body and kicking them out. Platelets circulate in the blood and leads to clotting which helps to not bleed in excess. In the blood there are hundreds of red blood cells for every one white. Through the circulatory system, blood adapts to the body’s needs. Blood cells are located in the blood. There are three different types of blood cells including red, white, and platelets. The red blood cells help carry oxygen to the tissues of the body. They white blood cells help fight infection.

How does it relate to the skin? If there is an increase in white blood cells the skin can itch. One of the most common red blood cell disorders is anemia, which is a low red cell count. Blood tests are commonly used to determine problems with the body. Preventing your cell count from dropping is important for your health because low white blood cells count can lead to getting very sick. Even if a person was to get a blood transfusion, those white blood cells wouldn’t serve a purpose. It also delivers immune cells to fight infections and contains platelets that can form a plug in a damaged blood vessel. The blood has many different functions including transporting oxygen and nutrients to the lungs and tissues.

Where does it typically occur? You find blood in the blood cells and blood cells in the bone marrow. Blood cells are found in the walls of the circulatory system. There are three main type; red (RBC), white (WBC), and platelets. White blood cells are the body’s response to trauma or infection. They travel to the site to defend the body swelling.. It is best to avoid trauma to the areas.

When? Implications Blood circulates through the body all the time so do blood cells. Blood is a constantly circulating fluid providing the body with nutrition, oxygen, and waste removal. The blood is constantly circulating the body at all times, just like blood cells. It is constantly supplying the body with oxygen, waste removal, and nutrition.

Who Benefits from this? All humans and mammals benefit from having blood cells. Everyone with a circulatory system benefits from capillaries as they allow for blood flow. They are the smallest of the blood vessels allowing for oxygen and nutrient exchange. Blood is constantly circulating throughout the body carrying oxygen, nutrients, and waste removal.

What causes this? Blood cells are made in the bone marrow of the body and plasma is what carries the blood cells through the body. Plasma contains proteins that help the blood to clot, transport substances through the blood, and perform other functions. Platelet disorders are known caused when the blood in a cut doesn’t clot. Also with skin that bruises easily and nose bleeds.

How? Solutions (Machines/Mechanical Benefits) There are machines that analyze blood tests and blood pressure cuffs. Bone marrow biopsies can pinpoint blood conditions that simple blood tests cannot. Leukemia is a cancer in the blood, since bone marrow makes abnormal white blood cells. There is radiation therapy and stem cell transplants that can help treat leukemia. Blood pressure cuffs read the pressure values of the arteries. A bone marrow biopsy can evaluate the condition of marrow. As marrow ages it turns yellow and decreases cellular creation.

How? Solutions (Non Mechanical)

Urine tests, anticoagulants, and blood sugar tests, eating healthy. A coombs test is a blood test that looks for antibodies that could bind to and destroy red blood cells. Living a healthy lifestyle is essential for healthy bone marrow. Tests to measure RBC count all can assist a physician in determining circulatory health.
