How to Measure Oxygen Saturation Using Pulse Oximeter?

Pulse oximetry is a noninvasive monitoring technique used to estimate the measurement of arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2) of hemoglobin. Oxygen saturation is an indicator of the percentage of hemo... Read More »

How a tree changes carbon dioxide into oxygen?

Oxygen is the waste product of the process photosynthesis. The tree uses carbon dioxide, water and sunlight (this is trapped by the green pigment in leaves called chlorophyll), to create glucose. O... Read More »

Where does blood exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen?

Blood exchanges oxygen for carbon dioxide at the blood-gas barrier between the alveoli of the lungs and tiny capillaries in the alveoli walls. This barrier is extremely thin, only 200 to 300 nanome... Read More »

Is there more carbon dioxide or oxygen in human blood?
