Something related to gaseous exchange

Post by ash_van_je » Mon Oct 30, 2006 2:43 pm

My textbook says...red blood cells in the blood are specially adapted for carrying oxygen:
their disc shape shortens the distance so that oxygen reaches the inside of the red blood cells and combines with haemoglobin more quickly.
Why so? :?:
