According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, Hematology (which can also be spelled haematology) is the, "branch of medical science concerned with the nature, function, and diseases of the blood."
Blood transports oxygen and hormones, supplies cells with nutrients, and removes waste. Blood also helps to regulate body temperature, protects the body from losing too much blood by clotting, and white blood cells assist the immune system.
