  5. Functions of the circulatory system include:
    Transport, Protection, and Regulation
  6. Regulation
    Shifts in blood flow help to regulate body temperaure by routing blood to the skin for heat loss or retaining it deeper in the body to conserve heat.
  7. Protection

  9. Viscosity
    is the resistance of a fluid to flow, resulting from the cohesion of its particles.
  10. Osmolarity
    The total number of dissolved particles that cannot pass through the blood vessel wall.
  11. Hemopoiesis
    Blood formation, the production of blood.
  12. Blood is a ________ tissue.
    Connective tissue
  13. Homeostasis
    refers to the body's ability to physiologically regulate its inner environment to ensure its stability in response to fluctuations in the outside environment.

  16. Plasma is ___% water.
  17. Albumin
    Transports Steroid hormones. Is the smallest and most abundant plasma protein.

    • 2. Bilirubin- A breakdown product of Hemoglobin.
  21. Thrombocytes or platelets
    Cell fragments
  22. Granular
