A Friend in Need Is a Friend Indeed: A Case Study on Human Respiratory Physiology
Cliff, William H.; Wright, Ann W.
Journal of College Science Teaching, v35 n2 p37 Oct 2005
The dynamics of oxygen transport by the blood can be a particularly difficult topic for students to grasp. A directed case study about carbon monoxide poisoning was designed to help deepen student understanding of the solution chemistry of the oxygen-hemoglobin reaction and the role that hemoglobin plays in external respiration.
