. -- HbNH2 + HbNHCOO- ® + 0 CI- OW + @~H~ A- +e~HA erythrocyte 02--------I! Fig. 1. Schematic diagram of chemical reactions and transport events occurring in blood during exchanges of C02 and 02. For details see text The description is obtained by making mass balances for each of the chemical species involved. The ional fluxes are described in terms of passive diffusion down electrochemical gradients.
