Carbon Dioxide Trans

Carbon Dioxide Transport - HCCRT

What percentage of the CO2 is carried in the RBC's? 89%
CO2 is transported from the tissue cells to the lungs by 6 different mechanisms.
Carbamino Compound Plasma
Ioonized as Bicarbonate Plasma
Dissolved CO2 Plasma
What percentage of CO2 is carried in the plasma? 11%
5% Dissolved RBC - Erythrocyte
21% Combined with Hb RBC - Erythrocyte
63% in the form of HCO3 (Lion's Share) RBC - Erythrocyte
What speeds up the Hydrolysis process? Catalyst Carbonic Anhydrase
Most of the dissolved CO2 that enters the RBC's go through what process? Hydrolysis
As the venous blood enters the capillaries the same chemical reaction occurs at the tissue level but it is__________? Reversed
What 2 things are being compared on the CO2 Dissociation Curve? Partial Pressure of CO2 & CO2 content of the blood. (curved)
What 2 things are being compared on the O2 Dissociation Curve? Saturation of O2 & Partial Pressure of O2. (90 degree angle)
Haldane Effect Deoxygenation of the blood increases its ability to carry carbon dioxide.
Haldane Effect DeOx blood enhances the loading of CO2 at the tissues.
Haldane Effect Oxygenated blood enhances the unloading of CO2 at lungs.
Haldane Effect When the saturatio of O2 increases in the blood, the CO2 content decreases at any given PCO2.
