Note on transpiration of gases in blood
I guess you are asking about transportation of gases in blood.
oxygen is transported in the blood in two ways.
- A small amount oxygen (5%) is carried in the plasma as a dissloved gas.
- Most oxygen (98.5 %) carried in the blood is bound to the protein hemoglobin in red blood cells. A fully saturated oxyhemoglobin (Hbo2) has four O2 molecules attached. Without oxygen, the molecule is referred to as deoxyhemoglobin (Hb).
- A small amount of CO2 (5%) is transported in the plasma as a dissloved gas.
- A small amount of CO2 (5 percent) is carried in the plasma as a dissolved gas.
- Some CO2 (10 percent) binds to Hb in red blood cells, forming carbaminohemoglobin (HbCO2). (The CO2 binds to the amino acid portion of hemoglobin instead of to the iron portion.)
