1. Start looking at an overview of hematopoiesis
2. Red blood cell development is fairly straight forward; click on the pictures or text-links on the erythopoiesis page. Also look at adult red blood cells, infant RBCs, and abnormal RBCs. Some images can be clicked to enlarge them.
3. Next, study lymphopoiesis and normal lymphocytes.
4. Monocytes and monocyte development.
5. The granulocytes include the neutrophils, eosinophils, and basophils. The granulopoiesis page of this site is defective, so we’ll first look at a quick review of granulopoiesis and finish by looking at granulopoiesis images from the Medyczne Wydawnictwo Multimedialne.
6. If you’re not overwhelmed by this point, you can view normal blood cells and bone marrow, with hematopathology.
As with the last lab exercise, there is a quiz. Again, to make this meaningful, take a piece of paper, print your name and < Hematology quiz > on it, and then write down each of your choices for the 10 questions. Put this aside, as you will be handing it in to me next week. When done, then use the < Click! And see the answers... > feature of the quiz.
