Do you know how oxygen is transported in your blood?

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.
