Arteries and Veins (Video)
Veinous Valves (Video) This graphic representation illustrations how venous semilunar valves work. It also shows how placque may build up behind the valve as a throbus and then dislodge, becoming an embolus that travels in the blood.
How Capillaries Work (Video)
Red Blood Corpuscles Flowing Through Capillaries / Note RBCs Lining Up Single File to Pass Through Capillaries (Video)
Carbonic anhydrase and the transport of CO2 in blood. (Video)
  The Bohr Effect (Video)
Blood Typing (Video)
Uptake of Bacteria by Phagocytes (Video)
Watch a neutrophil chase a bacterial among RBCs. The neutrophil eventually catches the bacteria and kills the bacteria by phagocytosis. (View Video)

Innate Recognition of Pathogens (Video)
Natural Killer Cell (cytotoxic surveillance lymphocyte) attacks a fibroblast. View Video
The Complement System: Complement is a group of 30 or more plasma proteins made primarily by the liver. These proteins play an important role in both nonspecific resistance and specific immunity. After complement is activated by one of three separate mechanisms, it results in four separate actions to destroy pathogens: inflammation, immune clearance, phagocytosis, and cytolysis. This video illustrates how complement " kills" a bacteria by cytolysis. (View Video)
