Where do blood cells receive oxygen?
They receive oxygen in the lungs!(Who would ask this?...Oh yeah you)
You breath in oxygen, then the oxygen goes to your lungs. As you breath, the oxygen flows through one of the valves in your heart and oxygenates your blood cells, then the blood cells are pumped around your body, and once they have used up their oxygen, they are pumped back to the heart to receive more oxygen.
Red means the blood is rich with oxygen. The arteries pump the blood throughout the body to enrich the cells with the oxygen. The purplish blood means the blood doesn't have oxygen and instead, has CO2 ( carbon dioxide ). The blood cells bring oxygen around the body and bring CO2 back to the lungs and heart to expell the CO2 and receive more oxygen from your breathing.
Yes, that is the only way that your bodily cells can receive oxygen. There is no other way, which is why diseases of the blood (eg. sickle cell anaemia, anaemia) can cause sufferers to become immuno-compromised and fatigued. If your red blood cells aren't moving 'oxygen' around your body, you'll either be very sick or be dead.
Why our body cells have a different oxygen concentration compared to the blood flowing to them from our lungs?
Diffusion from high concentration to low concentration. The oxygen concentration in the air in the lungs is higher than in the blood. The oxygen concentration in the blood is higher than in body cells. If these differences in concentration did not exist oxygen could not move from the air to the blood to body cells. While we are alive body cells consume some of the oxygen they receive, reducing their oxygen concentration and maintaining these…
Red blood cells have the important job of picking up oxygen from the lungs and carrying oxygen to all of the other cells of the body. The cells of the body use oxygen as the fuel they need to do their jobs. Red blood cells also give you color. If your skin is white the red blood cells give you the pink color in your skin. They also give your lips a nice pink color…
How does oxygen get from the lungs into the blood?" The red blood cells go to your lungs and they receive the oxygen you breathe in and take it all around the body and then you exhale which is when the blood returns back to the lungs. you are probably in Mr. Good's class or is getting the Circulatory System packet that is part of the Life Science textbook.
