Blood: A Liquid
Only liquid tissue
PLASMA – material making
blood a liquid
rbc – responsible for carrying O2

out or dead cells
 Follow chemical trail to infections, etc.

PLATELETS – essential for clotting(p.653)

Flexible walls…Why?
ARTERIES – Carry blood away from heart
- O2 rich blood
- Elastic & muscular walls
VEINS – Return blood to heart
- O2 poor blood
- Thin & slightly elastic
CAPILLARIES – Walls = one cell (Diffusion)
- O2 & Nutrients out.
• CO2 & Waste in.
