Chemical Bonding Power Point1

  1. 1. By: Jessica Kushner<br />Jan. 30, 2010Period’s 1 & 2<br />Chemical Bonding<br />
  2. 2. What is hemoglobin? <br />Hemoglobin is the protein molecule in the red blood cells <br />Carries oxygen from the lungs to the body’s tissues and returns carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs. <br /><br />
  3. 3. How is hemoglobin important in the transport of oxygen in our bodies?<br />delivers necessary substances to the body‘s cells<br />Such as nutrients and oxygen <br />Transports waste products away from those same cells.<br /> (for info & pic)<br />
  4. 4. How is hemoglobin related to a successful climb to the top of Mt. Everest?<br />Since its mostly made of protein <br />Its most important function of it is to build up, keep up, and replace your bodies tissue. <br />It gives us energy.<br /><br /><br />
  5. 5. How does pH have to do with the transport of oxygen by hemoglobin? <br />The more oxygen that is transported the lower the pH will be.<br /><br /> (for pic) <br />
  6. 6. Blood doping<br />The practice of boosting the total number of red blood cells in the bloodstream. In order to enhance athletic performance. <br />Since they carry oxygen from the lungs more RBCs in the blood can progress an athlete’s aerobic capacity (VO2 max) & endurance.<br /><br /><br />
  7. 7. Autologous blood doping<br />One type of transfusion. Usually involves the removal of 2 units (approx. 2 pints) of an athletes blood, Quite a few weeks before the competition. <br />Blood is then iced up until 1-2 days prior to the event<br />When it is thawed and injected back into the sportsperson. <br /> (for info. & pic)<br />
  8. 8. Erythropoietin-EBO<br />A hormone that the kidney produces. In the bone marrow, red blood cells form.<br /> Its used to treat low RBC counts called anemia.<br /><br />^ A healthy kidney…<br />
  9. 9. Medical uses for blood doping<br />When there was an emergency and no time to decide to do a cross-match of a patients blood-type for transfusion<br />When there’s no blood accessible or infectivity risk.<br /><br />
  10. 10. Why is blood doping used in sports?<br />For better performance in an athlete, the extra RBC’s would help more oxygen get to the muscles. <br />Meaning the athlete will be quicker and improved then a non-blood doper.<br /><br />
  11. 11. Example of blood doping (documented)<br />Alexei Cherepanov, from Moscow was a 19-year-old hockey all star.<br />He died from blood doping. <br />Months before his death he was taking the illegal substnce.<br /> (for info & pic) <br />
  12. 12. Second example of B.D<br />Pechstein- a German speed skating champion is banned for blood doping. <br />Found guilty after taking a blood sample<br />She is banned from February 9, 2009- February 8, 2011. <br />,,4454303,00.html(for info & pic) <br />
  13. 13. What are the side affects of B.D?<br />Has a lot of side affects that are unhealthy such as<br />Damage to kidneys<br />Jaundice which is when eyes, skin, and body fluids turn yellow. <br />And blood clots<br /><br /><br />
