  • Red Blood Cells Essay

    While studying and learning about the blood portion of the cardiovascular system in BIO 211, we learned that major function of this particular system is transportation of oxygen, waste and nutrients throughout the body. However, the specific part of the circulatory system that I would like to focus on are the erythrocytes. The erythrocytes, located in our bloodstream and blood vessels, which have the function of transporting oxygen to all parts of the body when tissues become deoxygenated. The erythrocytes are formed through the process of erythropoiesis that occurs in the red bone marrow within our skeleton. The process being with the formed element precursor cell being hemocytoblasts then matures into a cell that has lost its organelles and nucleus. Finally, it begins to build a lot of hemoglobin and decreases to microscopic size. (OpenStax College 2013). This…

  • Red Blood Cells Importance

    Although there are quadrillions of cells in the human body, there is on average 30 trillion red blood cells. There 's many qualities that make red blood cells different from the other cells. First of all, red blood cells are used to carry oxygen from the lungs to other parts ofthe body such as the tissue, and deposits the oxygen in there and brings back the carbon dioxide so it can be exhaled and thrown out of the human body. Secondary, there are a lot of things that we may not have ever heard…

  • Sickle Cell Anemia Causes Red Blood Di

    Sickle Cell Anemia is a blood disorder that causes red blood cells to become misshapen and not live as long as a regular blood cell. Sickle Cell is a disease that is not very common in the world. In the United States, Sickle Cell Anemia affects between 70,000 and 100,000 people and occurring in 1 out of every 36,000 births. Sickle Cell is more likely to occur in somebody from Africa, South or Central America, the Caribbean islands, Mediterranean countries, India or Saudi Arabia. The usual age…

  • Red Blood Cell Case Study

    Identify or trace the path of a red blood cell through all anatomical/structural areas of the heart. The path of a RBC consist of it first beginning in the heart as the RBC transports oxygen into the aorta by the aortic valve through contracting of the left ventricle. From the aorta, the RBC then travels through an artery with the help of arterioles to reach the capillaries. When in the capillary, the oxygen molecule that is carried by the RBC then detaches and travels through the capillary into…

  • Chemical Structure Of Haemoglobin

    It is found in red blood cells and is involved in the transport of oxygen around the body. Red blood cells do not have a nucleus, increasing the amount of space for haemoglobin. There are approximately 300 million haemoglobin molecules in each red blood cells. The structure of haemoglobin enables it to carry oxygen with high efficiency. It has a quaternary structure made up of four globin subunits, most commonly two alpha and two beta units. In the middle of each globin subunit is a haem which…

  • Research Paper On Sickle Cell Anemia

    Sickle Cell Anemia Dakoda Howard Indiana State University Pathophysiology 11/10/2016 Abstract The aim of this paper is to help individuals who do not understand or want to better their knowledge in Sickle Cell Anemia (SCA). SCA is commonly referred to as Sickle Cell Disease or SDA. The area of target is a general overview of that SCA, along with the various amounts of complications that can arise when someone has the disease. The paper will go over some of the more life threatening…

  • Sickle Cell Research Paper

    Sickle Cell Anemia India is one of the biggest countries with a population of 1.3 billion, but with a high population comes a high percentage in disease specifically sickle cell anemia. Sickle cell anemia’s history goes as far back as 1846, since numerous discoveries have been made in understanding how sickle cell manifests. Therefore Dr. Herrick in 1910 was the first to distinguish the “pelicular elongated and sickle shaped” platelets (Vasaikar, 2015). While in 1949 sickle cell was identified…

  • Iron Overload In Thalassemia

    Thalassemia is known to be an inherited genetic blood disorder that results in mild to severe anemia due to the abnormal formation of hemoglobin. Thalassemia is inherited by either one or both parents. A mutation in either chromosome 11 (Deisserot et al, 1978) effect the synthesis of beta hemoglobin, whereas a mutation on chromosome 16 affect the synthesis of alpha hemoglobin(Deisserot et al, 1977). Hemoglobin is a tetramer made of two alpha chains and two beta chains (Cao et al, 2010). The…

    DIAGNOSIS OF ANAEMIA: DETERMINATION OF HAEMOGLOBIN CONCENTRATION Introduction Red blood cells contain the protein molecule haemoglobin (Hb); it is made up of four polypeptide chains and contains iron. Its function is to carry oxygen from the lungs to the bodies tissue and to carry carbon dioxide from tissue back to the lungs. Anaemia can be caused when there is a lack of iron in the body which leads to a reduction in the number of red blood cells. Iron is used to carry oxygen in the blood so If…
