Question

Total plasma volume is important in determining the required plasma component in blood replacement therapy for a person undergoing surgery. Plasma volume is influenced by the overall health and physical activity of an individual. Suppose that a random sample of 42 male firefighters are tested and that they have a plasma volume sample mean of x = 37.5 ml/kg (milliliters plasma per kilogram body weight). Assume that σ = 8.00 ml/kg for the distribution of blood plasma.

What conditions are necessary for your calculations? (Select all that apply.)

σ is known
the distribution of weights is norma
