Blood Cells/Lymphatic System
Blood Cells/Lymphatic System Chart is a two-sided color chart that can be used by healthcare professionals as a patient education tool. Side one features illustrated information about blood cells, including information about how red cells, platelets and different types of white cells are formed from stem cells. Side two provides information about the lymphatic system, explains peripheral and internal lymph nodes and illustrates where lymph nodes are located in the body.
Blood cells are made in the bone marrow from stem cells. Blood passes through the bone marrow and picks up the fully developed blood cells for circulation in the blood.
Lymph nodes are small structures that contain lymphocytes. Lymph vessels connect the lymph nodes.
