Have you ever wondered how oxygen is gets from your lungs to your tissues?
Oxygen is transported in two major ways:
Some of the oxygen is dissolved in in your plasma and goes through to your tissues ( other organs). This accounts for about 1.5% of the oxygen that is transported.
The second way is something that you already know, and that is by attaching itself to hemoglobin. This is the major way by which oxygen is transported in the blood and accounts for about 98.5%
