In the lung, the inhaled O2 crosses the alveoli and re-oxygenates the blood in the pulmonary vasculature before entering the general circulation for delivery to every part of the body, while CO2 generated from the peripheral tissues and transported in the blood enters the alveoli where it is expired. Since the solubility of both O2 and CO2 in the blood are extremely low, efficient transport of these gases between the lung and the tissues by the blood requires some special mechanism or device. The second of this four lecture series will focus on how O2 and CO2 are transported in the blood and how the lung controls the body pH. Regulation of pH in the tissue culture setting will also be discussed.
