  • 1. Chemical bonding
    By Connor Lee
  • 2. 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
  • 3. How is hemoglobin important in the transport of oxygen in our bodies?
    It gives us oxygen and takes away carbon dioxide
  • 4. Why is the transport of oxygen by hemoglobin a real-life example of chemical bonding
    Cause the oxygen and the carbon dioxide mix
  • 5. 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
  • 6. 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.
  • 7. What is blood doping
    Increase numbers of red blood cells.
  • 8. What is the difference between autologous and homogenous
    Autologous: In blood transfusion and transplantation
  • 9. What is EPO and why is it used
    either by blood transfusion or use of the hormone erythropoietin (EPO).
  • 10. 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).
  • 11. Why is blood doping used in sports
    Increase peoples endurance for running and breathing
  • 12. Provide 1 example of blood doping used in sport
    Running for cross country.
  • 13. Provide a 2nd example of blood doping used in sport
    Also playing soccer because you need to run back and forth
  • 14. 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.
