Ulog #10: Examining the Red Blood Cells (Medtech Journey)

2년 전

Part of being medical technology student is expose yourself on the different laboratory procedure particularly in dealing body fluids such as blood. Medical Technology is an auxilary brach of laboratory medicine in which it intends to performe different laboratory procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.


Today, we had our very first laboratory activity for our major subject Anatomy and Physiology. On our laboratory activity we witnessed on what will happen to the red blood cells mixed with different concentration of saline. We were able to demonstrate the effect of solutions of the different tonicity (isotonic, hypertonic and hypotonic) to the red blood cell. On the other hand we also discuss thr physiological processes reponsible for such effects. It was a fun and full of learning activity, we learned a lot and I was really amazed because it was my first time to see the RBC on the microscope as well to witness bulging or bursting on the RBC.

Here are some photos during the activity:
