  Blood - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Blood is a circulating tissue composed of fluid plasma and cells (red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets).
Blood cells are degraded by the spleen and the Kupffer cells in the liver.
Infection of the blood is bacteremia or sepsis.

 PATTS - Cardiovascular System
Blood in arteries is oxygen-rich, with the exception of the pulmonary artery, which carries blood to the lungs to be oxygenated.
Blood in veins is oxygen-poor, with the exception of the pulmonary veins, which carry oxygenated blood from the lungs back to the heart.
Blood pressure is measured in mm of mercury, with the systole in ratio to the diastole.

 Blood Circulation
Blood is composed of a liquid portion known as plasma and several cell components.
The blood vessels that carry the oxygen-rich blood to the organs are known as arteries.
Blood rich is oxygen is a bright red, whereas blood that has had the oxygen extracted is a dark red to purple color.

It is used locally to raise the blood pressure during moulting (shedding of old skin) and stretching the legs.
Blood vessels do transport the blood to a specific place but thereafter the blood flows freely in the open spaces between the organs.
The blood is pumped to her head raising the pressure from 20 kPa to approximately 40 kPa (0.4 atm).

 Blood Circulation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Blood transports oxygen from the lungs to body tissue and carbon dioxide from body tissue to the lungs.
From the right atrium the blood then enters the right ventricle through a valve (tricuspid valve), which in turn pumps it to another valve into the pulmonary trunk and arteries to the lungs where the blood will be oxygenated through respiration.
Blood circulating through vessel provide two important means of measuring vital health statistics: pulse and blood pressure.

 Blood Circulation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to your body’s tissues, assists in the removal of carbon dioxide and waste products, and promotes the overall health of the body’s tissues.
Blood enters the heart through two large veins, the inferior and superior vena cava, emptying into the right atrium.
Blood then leaves the right ventricle and the heart through the pulmonic valve into the pulmonary artery and to the lungs.

 The Heart and the Circulatory System
It is the ventricles that are the real workhorses, for they must force the blood away from the heart with sufficient power to push the blood all the way back to the heart (this is where the property of contracting with more force when stretched comes into play).
When the atria end their contraction and the ventricles begin to contract, the blood is forced back against the valves between the atria and the ventricles, causing the valves to close.
Other current cardiovascular research involves drugs that control the blood pressure or heart rate, artificial blood substitutes, and devices implanted in the wall of the heart that can detect changes in the rate or patterns of contraction of the ventricles and correct them before a heart attack occurs.

 Placenta - Abstract
The first one, with blood, is aimed at the study of the fluidodynamics of placental vessels, while the second one wants to "fix" the vessel structure to prepare it for a following morphometrical examination.
During the beginning of our experimentation the main difficulty we met with came from the attempt to supply the umbilical arteries with a flow close to the physiological one, because a very high pressure was generated for a condition of general constriction of the placental vessels.
The model, realised using an equivalent electric circuit, was firstly applied to study the fluidodynamics of the fetoplacental circulation in the physiological situation, then in pathological situations, associated to infarction of vessels in rising percentage.

 Blood Circulation in the Fetus and Newborn - Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
Blood then passes into the left ventricle (lower chamber of the heart) and then to the aorta (the large artery coming from the heart).
Instead of blood flowing to the lungs to pick up oxygen and then flowing to the rest of the body, the fetal circulation shunts (bypasses) most of the blood away from the lungs.
In the fetus, blood is shunted from the pulmonary artery to the aorta through a connecting blood vessel called the ductus arteriosus.

 Increase blood circulation for circulation problem and poor circulation.
Many health problems are associated with poor circulation, when the oxygenated blood carrying vital life giving properties can not circulate to all parts of the body.
Another serious circulation problem is Raynaud's disease with symptoms that include constriction and spasms of the blood vessels in the fingers, toes and tips of the nose.
What ever the cause of poor circulation from a condition or over weight, no exercise or poor diet high in fats, it is important that the blood carrying oxygen get to all the parts of the body with little or no restriction.

 CIRCULATION OF BLOOD
I was greatly pleased to see very distinctly the circulation of the blood [in the tadpole, which was driven on from the parts that were nearest to the body to those on the outside, thus causing an uninterrupted, very rapid circulation.
This circulation was not regu­lar in its movement, but at very short intervals it was continually brought about anew with sudden impulses, and before there was another sudden impulse we might (in case we had not observed a continual increase in the rapidity) have thought that a stoppage in the circulation would follow.
These blood vessels, called "arteries and veins" (being neverthe­less identical), were exceedingly numerous at the ends of these fingers, and each ran in a curve, which made it impossible to follow the particular course of each vessel.

Pain occurs when and where blood circulation is impeded and symptoms include lower abdominal pain, true heart pain, pain due to internal bleeding of the viscera or associated with contusion, pain from inflammatory congestion of the viscera and stubborn, deep-rooted pains of the viscera, limbs and body, etc. Blood stagnancy is another.

 Circulation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Branches of the aorta convey blood to all the tissues and organs of the body (except the lungs).
The main sources are the hepatic artery, which as a branch of the aorta, supplies oxygenated blood to the liver and the hepatic portal vein, which is formed by the union of veins from the spleen, the stomach, pancreas, duodenum and the colon.
The blood is returned from the heart muscle to the right atrium through the coronary vein, which enters the right atrium through the coronary sinus.

 FETAL BLOOD AND CIRCULATION   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Only a small volume of blood enters the pulmonary circuit, because the lungs are collapsed, and their blood vessels have a high resistance to flow.
Most of the blood in the pulmonary trunk bypasses the lungs by entering a fetal vessel called the ductus arteriosus which connects the pulmonary trunk to the descending portion of the aortic arch.
The fetal blood supply passes to the placenta through two (2) umbilical arteries from the internal iliac arteries and returns through an umbilical vein which passes through the liver, ductus venosus, and joins the inferior vena cava.

 Red Gold . Blood Journey . Phase 2 | PBS
Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to every cell of the body, carries away waste products, and plays a central role in the body's defense against intruders.
Pulmonary circulation, in which blood goes from the heart to the lungs and back to the heart, is when the blood exchanges carbon dioxide, a waste product it has picked up from the rest of the body, for oxygen, which it will carry to the rest of the body.
The de-oxygenated, carbon-dioxide-laden blood returning to the heart from the body enters the right side of the heart through two veins (one for blood coming from the lower half of the body, the other for blood from the upper half).

 Blood Circulation
The circulation of blood between the lungs and heart is called the pulmonary circuit.
This circulation of blood through the body to meet the needs of the tissues is called the systemic circuit.
This causes the blood pressure to drop in the capillaries which allows easier passage of materials between the tissues and the blood.

 Blood Vessels
During blood circulation, the arteries carry blood away from the heart.
Besides circulating blood, the blood vessels provide two important means of measuring vital health statistics: pulse and blood pressure.
When we measure blood pressure, we use the blood flowing through the arteries because it has a higher pressure than the blood in the veins.
