What is Blood Tissue?
What does Blood Tissue DO?
-Transports oxygen and carbon dioxide for disposal and delivery
- Helps keep pH normal and the body's temperature normal
*If blood was put in a centrifuge (a machine that separates fluids) it would separate into three different parts: Erythrocytes (red blood cells), the buffy coat (gray substance made up of leukocytes and blood platelets), plasma (clear liquid that has over 100 different substances such as vitamins and bodily fluids)
*White blood cells (Leukocytes) are the defense army in the blood tissue.
Our bone marrow makes and releases new blood cells regularly replacing the old ones.
