Bone Marrow

Bone marrow

Bone marrow is the spongy tissue found inside some of your bones, such as your hip and thigh bones. It contains immature cells (called stem cells), and these stem cells can transform themselves into the red blood cells that carry oxygen through your body, the white blood cells that fight infections, and the platelets that help with blood clotting

Blood RBC ( Red Blood Cell Count)

A red blood cell count is a blood test that your doctor uses to find out how many red blood cells (RBCs) you have in your blood. It’s also known as an erythrocyte count. The test is important because RBCs contain hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to your body’s tissues. The number of RBCs you have can affect how much oxygen your tissues receive. Your tissues need oxygen to function effectively.

Blood WBC(White Blood Count)

White blood cells are one type of cell that are found in the blood. A normal white blood cell count is These specialized cells are just a part of the body’s immune response. White blood cells are created inside the bone marrow, the spongy tissue inside bones. A high WBC count is one sign that there is an inflammatory disease or an inflammatory process taking place somewhere in the body.

Platelets
Platelets, also called thrombocytes are a component of blood whose function is to stop bleeding by clumping and clotting blood vessel injuries.Platelets have no cell nucleus: they are fragments of cytoplasm that are derived from the megakaryocytes of the bone marrow, and then enter the circulation. These unactivated platelets are biconvex discoid structures.Platelets are found only in mammals, whereas in other animals thrombocytes circulate as intact mononuclear cells.
