Voyage of a Red Blood Cell
Transcript of Voyage of a Red Blood Cell
The red blood cell then makes its way out of the bone marrow, filling up most the space along with the plasma. The blood makes it to the vein capillaries and then the arteries. The blood is now deoxygenated blood and is ready to be filtered by the heart. .
The new oxygenated blood is filtered through the heart and is now sent throughout the entire body, brains, and all. This is called systematic circulation.
The voyage of the red blood cells starts all over again.
The red blood cell is produced in the bone marrow, which also contains the white blood cells and platelets. Red blood cells attract oxygen because they are made with hemoglobin.
The heart then sends this blood for pulmonary circulation to the lungs. Now that they have been through the lungs and the alveoli, the red blood cells have witnessed what carbon dioxide is, and is now oxygenated blood. The oxygenated blood is then sent back to the heart.
