Red blood cell and platelet

Platelets, or thrombocytes are small, irregularly shaped clear cell fragments (i.e. cells that do not have a nucleus containing DNA), 2–3 µm in diameter, which are derived from fragmentation of precursor megakaryocytes. The average lifespan of a platelet is normally just 5 to 9 days. They circulate in the blood and are involved in hemostasis, leading to the formation of blood clots.

Exit wounds for lightning strikes can appear up to 48 hours after the initial hit. I don’t know if this is concrete info but after a recent call I’m inclined to agree.

HEROES!

A life is a life and a life  is worth saving. This is how we do

There’s nothing quite as miraculous as seeing a limp, non breathing pet spring to life the second it is carried out into fresh air, or after a little bit of oxygen, and seeing the owners cry with joy is something that never fails to make *me* tear up on scene.

Just AWESOME.

This is pure motivation.
