Blood Questions and Answers (Q&A)

Stroke is a very terrible health condition because it talks about a sudden interruption of the blood supply to the brain. Ischemic and Hemorrhagic are two types of stroke and they are dangerous and deadly health conditions that must be adequately taken care of. The effects of the two types of stroke can result in a more dangerous end like death. However, Ischemic and Hemorrhagic differ in some ways. Ischemic is the most common type of stroke, it occurs when there is a blood clot in the artery carrying blood to the brain.


This will prevent the free flow of blood to the brain and consequently results to stroke. Symptoms include, unclear vision, not being able to maintain a proper balance, weakness. Hemorrhagic stroke, on the other hand, refers to a condition that occurs when the arteries carrying blood to the brain are weak and suddenly burst, this results to the leakage of blood to the blood and thereby results to stroke. People with this condition might experience a sudden headache. This type of stroke is not common.

Hypoxia refers to when the tissues' oxygen saturation drops below 90 percent; while Ischemia refers to when blood is being interrupted from flowing through to cells and tissues. The thing that causes Hypoxia the most is the failure in respiration or when some certain medical conditions get worsened. It also is caused by high altitude sickness due to the environment Ischemia is most likely caused by spasms or clots of blood vessels.

When Hypoxia occurs, oxygen becomes limited; but in the occurrence of Ischemia, oxygen, together with all nutrients that are carried usually by the supply of blood, becomes limited. To text for Hypoxia, the oxygen saturation is checked with the use of pulse oximeter, after which CT scans and X-rays are used. In texting for Ischemia, a physical examination is done together with CT scans and X-rays. You can treat Hypoxia by introducing extra supplemental oxygen; while Ischemia can be treated by medication like clot-busting drugs.

Diarrhea presents as a watery stool with no blood and mucus. Dysentery presents as a mucoid stool that may be accompanied by blood. The patient may or may not be suffering from cramps or stomach pain. The patient generally complains of cramps and pain in the lower abdominal area. Fever is more typical in dysentery. Diarrhea is a condition that affects the small bowel, while dysentery is an infection that affects the colon.


There is no cell necrosis in diarrhea, and the disorder is only caused because of the release of some toxins. When someone gets dysentery, upper epithelial cells are attacked and demolished by a pathogen or disease-causing agents. Diarrhea is not a serious condition. The most adverse response the body has to diarrhea is dehydration.

Creatine and creatinine are both proteins present in the homeostasis (in the blood) in human body. They are both obtained from protein, and this is the reason why people who feed on meat have them more in the body than just the vegetarians. Creatine is a protein substance which is present naturally in vertebrates. It is an amino acid stored basically in the brain and the muscles of the body. Creatine can be synthetically created though, but it is mostly present in meats and seafood. Creatine works in the body when consumed orally to treat heart diseases, brain disorders, and other neurological problems.


On the other hand, creatinine is formed as a chemical waste product when creatine has been broken down in the muscle cells. The muscle mass of an individual determines the level of creatine phosphate production in the body, and it can be excreted through the kidney. The chemical formula for creatinine is C4H7N30, while that of creatine is C4H9N3O2.

The endocrine system is composed of a plethora of glands, and there are two kinds of glands in the body, and they are called endocrine glands and exocrine glands. Endocrine glands have specific characteristics, such as secreting hormones into the bloodstream, no ducts. These glands possess an abundant blood supply with a large number of blood vessels. The exocrine gland, of which there are two kinds, secretes chemical substances into ducts. These include simple types and compound types.


The significant difference between the endocrine gland and exocrine gland is an endocrine gland lacks ducts and remains as blocks of tissue. The endocrine gland secretes chemical substances straight into the bloodstream, while the exocrine gland secretes its product into a duct. Exocrine glands release their products into the external environment, but endocrine glands release their products into the internal environment.

Lymph can be defined as a colorless, bodily fluid carried by the lymphatic system, and it consists mainly of white blood cells.


Blood, on the other hand, is a vital red liquid which flows in the body of many organisms and help in the circulation of nutrients and oxygen throughout the body. Blood circulates through arteries and vein after it is pumped by the heart, while lymph circulates lymph nodes, capillaries and lymph vessels. The protein concentration of blood is high, while the protein concentration of lymph is low. Blood contains red blood cells, while lymph contains white blood cells.

Thrombosis and Embolism affect hundreds if not thousands of people yearly. These two conditions have a severe consequence on our health, which can be fatal if they are not correctly treated and identified accordingly. To be able to treat this problem, you must understand and know the differences between the two. Thrombosis refers to the formation of blood clots in the areas where clotting is not necessary. It can also be said to be a situation whereby there is a reduction in the flow of blood in the vein or artery whenever the body is injured in any way. Blood clots can form within blood vessels when it is not medically needed, and it is as a result of a change in the rate at which blood is flowing.


Thrombosis occurs mainly to people who are not liable to move freely. On the other hands, Embolism is a blockage in blood vessel through a blood clot can cause it but can still be as a result of other things like fat globules, air bubbles, gas bubbles or any other foreign objects that have been able to enter the bloodstream. Moreover, Embolism can be created artificially to serve some medical purposes like reducing the flow of blood to a cancerous tumor.

The circulatory system pumps oxygenated blood throughout the body. This will not be possible without pulmonary and systemic circulation. Pulmonary circulation is the process where the deoxygenated (oxygen-poor) blood is being carried away from the heart to the lungs in exchange of blood rich in oxygen back to the heart. The deoxygenated blood leaves through the pulmonary arteries of the right ventricle.

The oxygenated blood then leaves the lungs going to the left side of the heart. Systemic circulation is the process of carrying the oxygenated blood from the heart to the parts of the body. The oxygenated blood from the lungs travels to the left ventricle through the aorta then to the tissues and organs of the body. In simpler terms, pulmonary circulation happens in the heart and lungs while systemic circulation all throughout the body.

Blood clot and aneurysm are considered to be serious medical conditions that should be addressed immediately. The main difference between the two is the location where they may form. The blood clot will develop in the blood while aneurysm may form in one of the major arteries of the heart or one of the blood vessels in the brain. A blood clot usually forms in order to stop bleeding from a ruptured blood vessel.

The aneurysm can cause serious issues especially when it is found in the brain because it is almost always fatal. A blood clot can cause clogging of the arteries or veins which can make it harder for blood to flow throughout the body.
