comment Can oxygen diffuse out through the lungs?
Okay, two questions I think need to be explicitly asked: (1) In my basic research I read here that something goes on with 2,3-BPG near the heart which allows deoxygenated RBCs to be separated from the oxygenated ones – does that play a role here? (2) Can the concentration gradient just flat-out strip the oxygen from hemoglobin?
