BT_PO 1.31 : Discuss the carriage of oxygen in blood, the oxyhaemoglobin dissociation curve, oxygen stores in the blood and their clinical significance and implications

Today I was reading Nunn’s Applied Respiratory Physiology, some of these statements are more inspired by my reading than directly in the text, but you should be able to figure out the answers if you understand the text.

It is valid to put the points (40mmHg, 75%) and (26.3mmHg, 50%) on the same oxyhaemoglobin dissociation curve (ODC)  TRUE/FALSE

The ODC flattens at higher pO2s as at these levels binding of oxygen is inhibited  TRUE/FALSE

A shift of the ODC to the right will impair oxygenation in the lungs  TRUE/FALSE

Foetal haemoglobin is left shifted with respect to adult haemoglobin  TRUE/FALSE

The P50 of myoglobin is less than the P50 of adult haemoglobin  TRUE/FALSE
