Blood is the liquid connective tissue which flows inside the blood vessels. Blood is red in color due to the presence of hemoglobin (Hb). It is bright red in color due to presence of oxyhaemoglobin in arteries and pinkish bluish in color due to presence of carbonoxyhaemoglobin in veins.
Blood occupies about 8% of the body weight or about 5600 ml in a 70 kg man. total blood is around 10ml/kg body weight.
Blood is composed of a straw colored transparent fluid called plasma in which different types of cells are suspended. Plasma constitutes about 55% and cells about 45% of blood volume.
