What's the major difference between the blood flowing through arteries and veins? Oxygenation, yes? We take blood from the artery for the blood gas test because we can test this blood for it's oxygen saturation i.e. how much oxygen there is per ml, to get an idea of how much oxygen is getting to the...

Fine. Hypodermic placed into an artery, which is harder to find than a vein. This hurts. Blood taken out under pressure and tested for 02 content among other things. Leaves a bruise for weeks.

That and protecting the soil from heavy rain erosion like they normally would if still o...

The skin does look like papier mache (however the evil stuff is spelt) painted and textured. It could actually be a ...
