How do oxygen carbon-dioxide flow in the blood?
The are transported round attached to a molecule called haemoglobin, present in the red blood cells. The blood is then pumped round the body by the heart and Carbon Dioxide is replaced for Oxygen in the lungs and the converse in the body's capillaries.

Thanks for the feedback!
When we inhale, the blood in the capillaries in our lungs will get the oxygen (the blood will be oxygenated) and it will go to the heart, first in the left atrium,mitral v…alve,left ventricle and to the aortic valve that will transport it to the different parts of body. Then, when the blood is deoxygenated, it will go to the inferior vena cava, right atrium,tricuspid valve,right ventricle, and pulmonary veins and the deoxygenated blood will go to the capillaries in our lungs and transport the carbon dioxide to the alveoli and we exhale it.
Lungs More specifically in pulmonary capillaries. Pulmonary capillaries lie next to the alveoli membranes. CO2 diffuses from the blood within the pulmonary capillaries and ent…er the alveolar space while O2 from alveoli diffuses into the blood.
No. As arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart, they regularly tend to have oxygenated blood. But in pulmonary circulation, the pulmonary artery ca…rries de oxygenated blood from the heart to both the left and right lungs. Pulmonary artery is an artery that carries de oxygenated blood.
Red blood cells.
Oxygen binds (oxygenation) to metalloproteins (like hemoglobin in mammals) in erythrocytes (red blood cells). When the oxygenated metalloprotein reaches a tissue, the environm…ent (low pH, high CO2 partial pressure, etc.) triggers the O2 unloading and CO2 loading. The O2 is then taken up into the tissue.
as the blood flows around the alveoli the co2 diffuses into the alveoli, and when you breathe it goes out
Red Blood Cells (Erythrocytes) are responsible for carrying oxygen (or carbon dioxide) around the body.

Air fills lungs, heart pumps non-oxygenated blood to the lungs via arteries where it becomes oxygenated flows back to the heart and flows through the body .....

Yes, oxygenated blood is not 100% oxygenized.
Both oxygen and carbon dioxide bond with haemoglobin. Oxyhaemoglobin is carried from the lungs, carboxyhaemoglobin is carried to the lungs
When you inhale oxygen, the oxygen goes to your lungs (this is were gaseous exchange takes place). Meanwhile, the blood will be getting pumped out around the body by your hear…t so the blood gets pumped by your heart to your lungs were the blood gets oxygenated(have oxygen). When your blood has been oxygenated, it goes back to your heart and your heart transports the oxygenated blood around the body. As for carbon dioxide, carbon dioxide doesn't get transported in the blood its actually a waste product.
Exchange of gases between the blood and the lungs are called external respiration and occurs via the process of diffusion.
between the capillaries surrounding the alveolar sac and the alveoli. woo hoo it occurs somewhere in the lungs. sorry, i cant get anymore specific than that. sorry, though.… :o( RESPIRATORY Ericaemily8's improved answer (instead of her's) (The one above mine is someone elses): It happens at the capillaries, the red blood cells carry the Carbon Dioxide to the capillaries which dispose of it in the human body, that is why you have gas. The capillaries which had oxygen to start with then give the oxygen to the red blood cells which carry it all around your body, mostly your heart.
Gas exchange, the release of carbon dioxide and the absorption of oxygen into the red blood cells, occurs in the lungs.
