    • Chemical bonding By Connor Lee
    • What is hemoglobin? • Hemoglobin is the protein molecule in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the body's tissues and returns carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs
    • How is hemoglobin important in the transport of oxygen in our bodies? • It gives us oxygen and takes away carbon dioxide
    • Why is the transport of oxygen by hemoglobin a real-life example of chemical bonding • Cause the oxygen and the carbon dioxide mix
    • How is hemoglobin related to a successful climb to the top of Mt. Everest • It gives you a bunch of oxygen when they go higher on the mountain
    • We learned about pH in our last unit on acid and bases. What does pH have to do with the transport of oxygen by hemoglobin • It is like adding more red cells to the blood flow.
    • What is blood doping • Increase numbers of red blood cells.
    • What is the difference between autologous and homogenous • Autologous : In blood transfusion and transplantation
    • What is EPO and why is it used • either by blood transfusion or use of the hormone erythropoietin (EPO).
    • What are the medical uses of blood doping • Another similar use of medical technology is called blood doping, either by blood transfusion or use of the hormone erythropoietin (EPO).
    • Why is blood doping used in sports • Increase peoples endurance for running and breathing
    • Provide 1 example of blood doping used in sport • Running for cross country.
    • Provide a 2nd example of blood doping used in sport • Also playing soccer because you need to run back and forth
    • What are the side effects of blood doping? • The simple act of increasing the number of RBC's in the blood stream makes blood thicker and chance for heart attack.
