What is blood?
Blood is a body fluid in the human body that circulates and delivers necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen to the cells and transports metabolic waste products away from those same cells. Blood is essential to life. Blood is mostly liquid, with numerous cells and proteins suspended in it, making blood “thicker” than pure water. The average person has about 5 liters of blood (more than a gallon). There is no substitute for blood. It cannot be made or manufactured. Generous blood donors are the only source of blood for patients in need of a blood transfusion.
The human blood comprises of four basic components which are: red blood cells, platelets, plasma and white blood cells.
