THE CIRCULATORY SYSTEM The circulatory systems job is to transport vital substances throughout the body. It transports nutrients, water, and oxygen to your billions of body cells and carries away wastes such as carbon dioxide that body cells produce. The three parts of the system is the heart, blood, and the blood vessels.
WHAT IS BLOOD? Blood is bodily fluid that transports needed substances such as oxygen and nutrients to cells while removing waste from the cells also. The body contains 5 liters of blood, plasma is about half of what blood is made out and is high in protein and is responsible for the bloods ability to clot
ANEMIA Anemia is a condition where your blood cells do not have enough red blood cells. It occurs when blood lacks hemoglobin, an iron rich protein, which gives the blood its red color. Since the blood lacks oxygen the symptoms are feeling week, dizzy, and short breaths. Very severe anemia can be fatal. There are different types of anemia some can be short term and easily treated or prevented with a healthy diet while other are long term and be difficult to cure.
HEMOCHROMATOSIS Hemochromatosis is a disease where to much iron builds up In your body which in a case where there is to much it becomes toxic you your body. The iron then can build up in your major organs especially you heart liver and pancreas. It then can cause those organs to fail which is no Bueno. This can cause liver cancer and fluttered heart beats and in the case that It builds up in the pancreas diabetes. This can be passed from the parents the treatment depends on when it is caught it can be treated very well and therefore the victim can live a normal lifespan but failure to catch can be fatal.
HEMOPHILIA This is a blood condition where the does not clot normally. This causes your body to bleed longer than it normally should if you are cut. This includes internal bleeding and this especially includes your knees, ankles and elbows. This is often inherited people born with this are at a high risk of no clottage and this is due to low hemoglobin in an individuals blood. This can be classified under mild moderate and sever and about 7 out of 10 people are diagnosed with the severe.
ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LEUKEMIA Leukemia is cancer that attacks the bloods forming tissues. The bone marrow then produces unusual amounts of white blood cells production in some cases red blood cells and platelets. Unlike normal white blood cell production which fight infections the excess of this white blood cells block the production of normal ones preventing the containment of infections. The treatment is very complex, most patients are treated with chemotherapy. Also radiation therapy and biological therapy.
THROMBOCYTOPENIA This condition reduces the amount of platelets, this can arise in many clinical situations. This can arise by a complex interplay of autoimmune platelet destruction and production damage. Platelet can be reduced by alcoholism, vitamin b12 and folate deficiency. This is seen more in aged victims.
