Example text

Blood is mostly water. Oxygen and carbon dioxide don’t dissolve well in water, particularly in warm water, as in the body. As a result, at sea level pressure, only a small amount of oxygen dissolves in blood plasma (the part of blood without cells). The oxygen-carrying problem is solved with a red protein molecule called hemoglobin found inside red blood cells. Red blood cells carry far more oxygen with hemoglobin than they could without it. Up to four oxygen molecules loosely attach to each hemoglobin molecule to form oxyhemoglobin.


Blood expelled from low-demand areas increases blood flow to areas with high demand for oxygen supply and for carbon dioxide and waste removal. In these areas, the arteriolar muscular lining relaxes to allow more blood to enter. Unlike other areas of the body with varying blood supply, the brain always needs a steady supply of oxygen. 1). Aerobic fitness is the ability of lungs, heart, and blood vessels to deliver oxygen, and the ability of the muscles and other cells to extract and use it. Aerobically fit people can deliver, extract, and use more oxygen when exercising and are able to do more aerobic exercise.
