Hi my name is stacie and i am a RBC. Ive just been re-oygenated and I'm feel amazing. But there no time to rest, we have cells to feed. Come on a journey with me!
ITS A WILD RIDE!
Since i have just been oxygenated Iim gonna get pumped into the left atrium of the heart , them past the mitral valve and into left ventricle. Then i get shoved past the aortic valve and into the aorta which into an artery where i can go save a cell
The artery is really busy today, i keep bumping into platelets. I think someone must have fallen over and hurt themselves.
I've just been pushed out of the heart in a single heart beat, literally. Im currently travelling through the artery, I've just gotten word that a neuron needs my help so I'm on my way.
Thanks for the oxygen Stacie! I really needed it, it been a busy day.
Ive just helped Bob the neuron by giving him by oxygen that i carry in my haemoglobin.
Im really tired now, i have no oxygen left.Im currently travelling through a vein, back to the heart.
Then i have to wait in line to get past a TING capillary. ARRGH. Then after i am oxygenated again the journey begins all over again.
I've just been pushed through the superior ten cava and past the the right atrium and ventricle and into a pulmonary vein to be sen to the the lungs to get re-oxygenated.
