Previous Figure Next by:   Blood is a life-saving fluid that, in higher evolved animals like humans, moves throughout the circulatory system. It is a fundamental component of the human body, and an adult body carries close to 4 or 5 liters of blood. Blood from arteries is scarlet red in color, while blood from the veins is purple-red, due to its carbon dioxide content. Understanding Blood and Blood Components. Blood is a fluid that flows throughout the body in blood vessels. Blood is needed for life. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to your organs and tissues and helps remove waste. Blood also helps you fight infections and heal from injuries. This sheet tells you more about blood and its important role in. The constancy of the composition of the blood is made possible by the circulation, which conveys blood through the organs that regulate the concentrations of its the lungs, blood acquires oxygen and releases carbon dioxide transported from the kidneys remove excess water and dissolved waste products. Nutrient substances derived from food reach the bloodstream after.

The whole blood which is a mixture of cells, colloids and crystalloids can be separated into different blood components namely packed red blood cell (PRBC) concentrate, platelet concentrate, fresh. The blood circulates around the body through veins, arteries and capillaries is 7 to 8 percent of normal human body weight, with an average density, close to pure water, of kg/m3. The average looking adult has a blood volume of roughly 5 liters. Plasma, Red Blood cells, White blood cells, and Platelets are the 4 major blood components. Plasma. Blood: Its Composition and Function The blood in our circulatory system is a watery based fluid and consists of two basic components: 1) Plasma (55%) and, 2) Formed elements (45%) Part A: Plasma The Plasma is the light yellow liquid portion of the blood and is about 90% water. Dissolved in the plasma are.   Introduction. Blood and blood components (BCs) for transfusion chiefly originate from donations made by altruistic individuals. However, although % voluntary non-remunerated blood donation (VNRD) is the goal that has been set (by as publicized by the World Health Organization WHO—later revised to in some areas) (1, 2), it is far from being achieved at the present time for.

A component in the Unified Modeling Language represents a modular part of a system that encapsulates the state and behavior of a number of behavior is defined in terms of provided and required interfaces, is self-contained, and substitutable.A number of UML standard stereotypes exist that apply to components.. A component has an external and internal view, also known as "black. Blood is 20 percent of a person’s extracellular fluid and eight percent of weight. The Role of Blood in the Body. Blood, like the human blood illustrated in Figure is important for regulation of the body’s systems and homeostasis. Blood helps maintain homeostasis by stabilizing pH, temperature, osmotic pressure, and by eliminating.   Blood and its components 1. BLOOD ANATOMY • BY DR. SUMAIYA TAREEN 2. BLOOD AND ITS COMPONENTS 3. Fluids of the Body • Cells of the body are serviced by 2 fluids – blood • composed of plasma and a variety of cells • transports nutrients and wastes – interstitial fluid • bathes the cells of the body • Nutrients and oxygen diffuse from the blood into the interstitial fluid & .   Blood Glucose Biosensor. Blood glucose Biosensors are used widely throughout the world for diabetic patients. It has a single-use disposable electrode with glucose oxide and derivatives of a mediator (Ferrocene) and the shape of the blood glucose Biosensor looks like a watch pen. With the help of hydrophilic mesh, electrodes are converted.
