Humans can't live without blood. Without blood, the body's organs couldn't get the oxygen and nutrients they need to survive, we couldn't keep warm or cool off, fight infections, or get rid of our own waste products. Without enough blood, we'd weaken and die.
Here are the basics about the mysterious, life-sustaining fluid called blood.
Two types of blood vessels carry blood throughout our bodies:
1. Arteries carry oxygenated blood (blood that has received oxygen from the lungs) from the heart to the rest of the body.
2. Blood then travels through veins back to the heart and lungs, where it receives more oxygen.
As the heart beats, you can feel

I myself needed blood transfusions when I was a baby. My original due date was set for in January, I was born prematurely in September weighing in at 1 pound 10 ounces. Doctors were shocked that I even survived; even if I were to survive the doctor told my parents my motor skills would never develop properly, and that I would never be capable of breathing on my own. In my parents’ eyes I’m their miracle child that proved all the doctors wrong. My parents had faith in me that I was a fighter and could make it. I would have never made it through if it weren’t for the generous blood donors that helped me along the way. I wish I could thank every donor who took their time to give

In order for us to survive we need blood. Blood transports oxygen, nutrients, protein, water, and most importantly carbon monoxide. Our blood contains red blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Red blood cells, also called erythrocytes, carry protein called hemoglobin. The red blood cells are transported throughout the body while the hemoglobin releases the oxygen for carbon monoxide. The plasma is the fluid part of the blood throughout the circulatory system. It helps transport the red blood cells. Platelets are small blood components that help the blood clot when it is needed.

June is being treated at the hospital for severe wounds after a car crash. Although June has Type B blood, she is given Type O blood.
During transfusion, the blood of donor and recipient is categorized into following types: A, B, AB and O. This classification is based on the presence or absence of protein agglutinogens or antigens in the blood. In type A and type B blood, antigen A and B is present, respectively. In type AB both antigens A and B is present while, in type O blood, neither of these proteins exist.
In the absence of antigen A, Red blood cells develop Anti-A antibodies known as agglutinins. Same happens in the type B as the absence of antigen B cause the production of Anti

Blood is the river of fluid that a person’s body is fueled by. Circulating blood is made up of about 45% red blood cells and 55% plasma. Plasma is the fluid that carries the red blood cells and contains water and other important nutrients. Red blood cells carry oxygen and are produced in the red marrow in ribs, sternum, and the vertebrae. Platelets are produced in bone marrow and are vital to the clotting process; low platelets can cause too much bleeding, to many platelets causes unwanted blood clots. Anemia is a low level of red blood cells cause by disease, certain health conditions or by poor

In Lily’s case I believe that she has anemia. This is a condition that can develop if and when your body fails to receive healthy red blood cells. The red blood cells are the main transporters for which the organs get oxygen, red blood cells will also be deficient in hemoglobin without this transporter too. This can cause

I think, Blood Diamond could have been little shorter. While the film includes a number of political and sociological insights, the story is tepid and loses momentum as the storyline bogs down. The main character, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, has an effective arc that is believable because it does not force him to act contrary to his nature, but it takes a long time for Blood Diamond to get us to DiCaprio's moment of recognition. Pacing issues aside, this is a well constructed movie and clearly the product of a director who understands how to make a top-notch motion picture. It looks great and sounds great. If only Edward Zwick's mastery of the

Chiquita Brands International is a successful company with a long history that began in 1899 as the United Fruit Company. The company has endured over time through changes in leadership, acquisitions, and process changes to become one of “the big three” banana distributors in the world.

Blood components are red cells, white cells, platelets and plasma. These can be put to different uses.
RED BLOOD CELLS
Red blood cell also known as erythrocytes make up 45% of blood volume lacks nucleus and contains the oxygen-carrying protein haemoglobin, which is a pigment that gives whole blood its red colour. Erythrocytes are produced inside of red bone marrow. Its main function is to distribute oxygen to body tissue, and carry waste carbon dioxide back to lungs. In addition to its key role in transporting oxygen and carbon dioxide, haemoglobin also plays a role in the regulation of blood flow and blood pressure.

Blood, Veins, and Arteries
In what way are veins really blue?
People’s skin tone distorts vein color, as it absorbs blue light. “Subcutaneous fat only allows blue light to penetrate skin all the way to veins, so this is the color that is reflected back. Less energetic, warmer colors are absorbed by skin before they can travel that far” (Helmenstine). In other words, the skin filtrates light wavelengths differently and blue and red light have different wavelengths. Not only that, but veins appearing blue has to do with the way the eyes and brain interprets the information. The brain compares the dark red color of blood to the warm color of skin, making the veins seem blue or green-blue

Red blood cells carry oxygen to the body’s tissues. When there is a lack of healthy red blood cells it causes a condition called iron deficiency anemia. This is a common type of anemia for someone to have. Iron deficiency anemia can leave a person very tired and short of breath. This type of anemia can be corrected by taking iron supplements but sometimes additional treatments may be needed especially if there is internal bleeding (Mayo Clinic, 2012).

Before the seventeenth century, scientific concepts were mostly based on ancient philosophical and theological explanations (Lubitz SA.). By the early 17th century, with the invention of different kinds of new devices, experimental and observational methods had been used to turn most of the traditional theoretical concepts upside down.
One of the most astonishing announcements was made by Johannes Kepler. He described planetary orbits as elliptically revolving around the Sun at one focus, which was in conflict to the wide-spread Platonic idea of circular motion. Kepler worked as Tycho Brahe’s assistant in order to assess the accuracy of Brahe’s data in

Analyze the economic situation of the movie:
The movie “Blood Diamond” is directed by Edward Zwick. This movie is considered as one of the great movies because the diamonds mined at Africa are traded in exchange for firearms and other weapons which are used in civil wars, coups and cruel military dictatorships, and what makes the story interesting is that, which side is worse? Is it the government or the rebels? So the first thing we see in this story if we will relate it to economic situation is that, people face tradeoffs.

A mechanism that prevents some substances in the blood from reaching the brain. It is achieved by brain capillaries, which unlike other capillaries elsewhere in the body, are composed of endothelial cells sealed together in continuous tight junctions and surrounded by astrocytes that contribute to the selective passage of substances. Lipid-soluble substances such as alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and most anaesthetics, as well as glucose, oxygen and water, pass rapidly into brain cells, whereas proteins, most antibiotics and ions do not enter or enter very slowly. The mechanism protects brain cells against harmful substances and pathogens. See central nervous system

1) A hematocrit is a blood test that measures the percentage of red blood cells in the total volume of whole blood. So a lower than normal hematocrit would mean that you have a lower than normal RBC’s (red blood cell) count for your age, sex, or condition. This signifies that you could have anemia, internal bleeding, or something is destroying your RBC’s, or your body is not producing them at an appropriate rate. The effect of a bacterial infection on a hematocrit would be that you would have a lower RBC count because you will have a higher WBC’s (white blood cell) count to combat the bacterial infection.
