If you had insufficient red blood cells, your body would not get the oxygen that it needs. This is because red blood cells are what carries oxygen around the body.

low blood pressure leads to an insufficient transport of oxygen through the body

User Avatar

due to insufficient oxygen supply to blood stream.

When normal breathing stops or oxygen intake is insufficient to support life, it may be called hypoxia, or it may be called death.

It is the supply of oxygen to the heart; the oxygen is carried by the blood. When there's insufficient blood supply, oxygen supply is low too, and angina results. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angina_pectoris

It means that there is an insufficient supply of oxygen in the artery. Artery carries oxygen away from the heart.

whats the rusults from an insufficient amount of oxygen entering the body?

Blood contains a pigment called hemoglobin that carries oxygen to the tissues in the body. Oxygen is added to hemoglobin in the lungs and carried throughout the body through blood vessels called arteries and it is called oxygenated blood. After supplying oxygen, blood is returned to the heart by veins and that blood is called deoxygenated blood.

red blood cells transport oxygen :)

the blood is given oxygen as it passes next to the alveoli in the lungs. The process by which the blood gets oxygen is called diffusion

Oxygen is carried in the body by the blood which gets the oxygen in the lungs and this blood is called oxygenated blood

Infarction is death of body tissue (also known as necrosis) due to insufficient blood or oxygen supply. Ischemia is a related term relating to the decrease in oxygen or blood supply. Gangrene is the condition resulting from bacterial invasion of an area of necrosis.

Oxygen is carried in the blood by our red blood cells which have a special molecule called hemoglobin. This molecule sticks to the oxygen molecules by red blood cells.

acidoticBlood that is rich in oxygen is called saturated or oxygenated. Oxygen saturation is a measure of the amount of oxygen that is dissolved in blood. Please see the related link for details.It is called oxygenated or arteriolar blood. Even in the pulmonary vein it is called arteriolar blood because it is oxygenated.

Asphyxia is characterized by excess carbon dioxide and a lack of oxygen in the blood. It results from insufficient air oxygen or respiratory interference.

Oxygen binds to a molecule called hemoglobin in red blood cells.

Any bleeding when the blood is exposed to oxygen turns the color of the blood to bright red and is called oxygen-rich. If the blood has used up a portion of the oxygen it is carrying, called oxygen-poor blood, it turns to a darker brick-red.

Most oxygen is transported in the blood by red blood cells; red blood cells contain a protein called hemoglobin which has the capacity to transport oxygen.

Oxygen is transported by red blood cells. The red blood cells have a protein in them called hemoglobin which has the ability to carry oxygen.

Oxygen leaves the blood to carry out a proccess called airobic respiration where oxygen and other things are converted into energy.

You breathe the oxygen into your lungs. The oxygen then dissolves into the water lining which is called the alveoli. Finally, the oxygen will cling to the red blood cells as they pass through the alveolar capillaries and now the oxygen is in the blood.

Two different things. Stopping breathing is called apnea, and a lack of oxygen is called anoxia.

Insufficient blood volume can cause low blood pressure, dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath, and chest pain.

Well oxygenated.It means breathing room air the person has >98% oxygen saturation. (aka blood sat)Their heart and lungs are working together and keeping the pumping the oxygen to their organs sufficiently. A person with low blood sats may have pneumonia, asthma, COPD or could be a premature new born with insufficient surfactant in their lungs to pull in the room air / oxygen.A person with chronic oxygen poor blood may be confused, dizzy have high blood pressure, have a headache or suffer brain damage.
