What is Hemoglobin?<br />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.<br />This means that it helps you breathe <br />
How is hemoglobin important in the transport of oxygen in our bodies?<br />It gives us oxygen and takes away carbon dioxide when its traveling in the red blood cell.<br />This is the reason why we can breathe because this transports oxygen to our body on red blood cells. <br />
Why is the transport of oxygen by hemoglobin a real-life example?<br />The oxygen and the carbon dioxide mix when going to or from the lungs<br />
How is hemoglobin related to a successful climb to the top of Mt. Everest?<br />It gives less oxygen the higher you climb the mountain and it gets harder from the oxygen to travel in the red blood cell.<br />
What does pH have to do with the transport of oxygen by hemoglobin?<br />its like adding more red cells to the blood flow and making more base toward it.<br />
What is blood doping?<br />Increase numbers of red blood cells in the blood stream. It helps you have good endurance but theirs a good chance to have a heart attack.<br />
What is the difference between autologous and homologous blood doping?<br />Autologous is in blood transfusion and transplantation<br />Homologous is when 2or more substance mixed into 1 can be only separated by energy<br />
What is EPO and why is it used?<br />Blood transfusion <br />to treat certain forms of anemia <br />
What are the medical uses of blood doping?<br />Blood transfusion or the use of the hormone erythropoietin<br />
Why is blood doping used in sport?<br />Increase peoples endurance for running and breathing. So they wouldn’t get tired easily.<br />
Example of blood doping in sports<br />Running cross country because they need to have good endurance to run long distances.<br />
Another example of blood doping in sports<br />Playing soccer because you run back and forth on the field and kick a ball around.<br />
The side effects of blood doping<br />Injecting blood doping chemicals can cause kidney damage, jaundice (the skin , eyes and body fluids turn yellow) and blood clots. Re-injecting blood from an athlete's own body can cause blood infections and heart problems. <br />
