What is Oxygenated Blood?

Oxygenated blood is also called arterial blood as the arteries deliver oxygenated blood to different parts of the body through the pulmonary veins.

Blood is the only fluid connective tissue in the human body and is mainly involved in transporting water, gas, food, minerals and other essential molecules for the proper functioning of the cells, tissues and other organs of our body.

Oxygenated blood can be simply defined as a blood cell with large percentage of oxygen and low in carbon dioxide. It appears bright red in colour and travels away from the heart to different parts of the body.
