AnswerOxygen rich blood is something that everyone has. But how does it happen?

When we breathe, we take in oxygen. I'm sure you know this. But the oxygen we take does not stop at the lungs. The air is taken in and filtered. Oxygen is given to red blood cells for processing, while Carbon Dioxide is released from our bodies.

So, why the Carbon Dioxide? Well, have you heard of bodily waste? Yes, that kind... Believe it or not, but carbon dioxide is a form of waste. Above, I stated that oxygen is processed. What I mean is that our body takes what they need from oxygen and dispose of the rest. The rest being Carbon Dioxide.

So, how does the air go from being oxygen to a compound molecule?

Oxygen is used for one purpose. In our bodies, we have what are called Mitocondria. Mitocondria need oxygen to accept electrons during Aerobic Respiration, routes by which energy is released.

By relaxing the blood vessels, antiangina drugs reduce the heart's work load and increase the amount of oxygenrich blood that reaches the heart.

The oxygenpoor ( carbon dioxide rich) blood from the right ventricle of heart is flow through the pulmonary artary to the lungs. And the gas exchange(exchange of carbon dioxide and oxyen ) takes place between the capillaries of pulmonary artary and the alveoli (air spaces) of the lungs .then the oxygenrich blood is collected by the pulmory veins to the left auricle of heart. pulmonary artary--- the only artary which carries deoxygenatad blood............. pumonary vein----------the only vein which carry oxygenated blood............

Amfibians have two atria and one chamber so the oxygenrich and -poor blood is mixed. In mammals the heart is two-chambered so the blood wont mix.

Arteries carry oxygenrich blood away from the heart, and veins carry oxygen depleted blood towards the heart. The aorta carries oxygen away from the heart to parts of the body. Hope this helps!

It is a result of thousands of years of evolution. But you also have to look at their functions. The left ventricle is pumping deoxygenated blood through the pulmonary artery to the lungs and back to the left part of the heart (including the left ventricle) which then pumps the oxygenrich blood out in the body. I guess you can imagine that pumping the blood in the body requires more work than pumping the blood to the lungs and back. I suggest you read more about the circulatory system and the heart if you have an exam or something that you have to prepare to. Best regards premed student

it is blood it is blood it is blood it is blood it is blood it is blood it is blood

now I do not know where you got that THERE IS NO SUCH THING ok? Sorry Good luck :)

Blood contains red blood cells. Red blood cells don't contain blood. Blood does not enter the red blood cell.

Blood cells are a part of blood. Blood is not a part of blood cells. Blood can't flow backward and forward within blood cells. Blood cells can flow backward and forward within blood.

the arties is the blood vessel that blood is at its highest blood pressure because it fuels the whole body with that blood

Heart-your heart is to pump blood into the blood vessels.Blood vessels-the blood vessels are used to carry bloodBlood- blood carry nutrients to your whole body.

Common blood can be transfered to rare blood but rare blood can not be transfered to common blood.

blood is made out of blood

There are two types of blood. Deoxygenated blood, and oxygenated blood.

all blood types can give blood.

55% of the whole blood is blood plasma.

A blood bank is for people to donate blood and to receive blood that people donated to get blood transfusions.

we can say that blood clotting is a function of blood because plasma is involved in blood cloting and plasma is a consituent of blood.

the blood vessel that takes blood to the heart is called the blood vessel that takes blood to the heart.

Determining your blood type, requires your blood to be tested. If you do not know your blood type, request a blood test from your doctor. If you donate blood, the blood bank would also be able to tell you your blood type.

Blood group O- can give blood to all the other blood groups.

blood platelets is need to clot the blood

oxygenated blood oxygenated blood oxygenated blood
