Cell size

Yes, this is a simple math problem. Since cells do not have a circulatory system, the speed of osmosis and diffusion(therefore cell processes) depends upon surface area. Examine the surface area to volume ratio for different sizes. :) Also try them for different shapes.

Artificial blood

Actually, wired magazine just had a feature article on artificial blood. This stuff has the abilitiy to carry oxygen but that's about it so it's not a long term solution. I believe it's only used in long surgeries.
