Blood Disorders Blood is a fluid that is composed of plasma and different types of cells such as red blood cells and platelets. Abnormalities in the structure and amounts of red blood cells and platelets cause diseases that produce symptoms related to the function of the blood cells. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the function of plasma, red blood cells and platelets and three blood disorder cases. In this paper, the causes of the blood disorders cases are discussed as well as the patient’s symptoms and prevention of the blood disorders.Plasma is a straw colored fluid that is made up of 10% proteins and 90% water and its function is to assist in the transport of hormones, electrolytes, waste materials, nutrients and antibodies...The end:
