Oxygen molecule and kidney cell

Post by jazzy » Tue Nov 14, 2006 10:30 pm

I have a assignment due tomorrow and I have no idea where to find this info. Here we go: I am to travel aboard an oxygen molecule as it travels from the air to a kidney cell. Starting at the nose, indicate all passageways and/or vessels that you travel through and also state the type of blood cell you eventually become attached to. You do not have to name individual vessels other than the aorta & pulmonary. Also list 2 dangers you may encounter. HELP. Due tomorrow.
Thanks

Find an atlas of the respiratory system that will give you the travel from the nose to the blood and a diagram of the circulatory system to see the travel in the blood.

As for the dangers, I have no idea...
