Milanick, Mark A. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
I describe a kinesthetic activity about oxygen handling by hemoglobin with two specific goals: (1) to help students gain a better understanding of how hemoglobin properties affect oxygen delivery and (2) to improve the ability of the students to actually read the hemoglobin oxygen-binding curve. The activity makes understanding oxygen delivery…
