Oxygenated blood is carrying more of oxygen to deliver to body tissues while deoxygenated blood is carrying more of carbondioxide to be expelled from body.

#### Explanation:

.......Oxygenated Blood...................Deoxygenated Blood.........

1. ..... one $H b$ binds to $4 {O}_{2}$.................one $H b$ binds to $1 C {O}_{2}$
2. .......97% ${O}_{2}$ with Hb..............................23% CO_2 with Hb
3. ...........3% O_2 in plasma.............................7% CO_2 in plasma
4. ..no ${O}_{2}$ in ionic form.......................70% CO_2 as bicarbonate ion
5. ...blood color: bright red.............................blood color: purplish red
6. .....$p H \to 7.42$......................................................$p H 7.36$
7. ...$P {O}_{2}$ $90 - 100 m m H g$...........................$P {O}_{2}$ $40 m m H g$
8. ..$P C {O}_{2}$ $38 - 42 m m H g$...................$P C {O}_{2}$ $44 - 48 m m H g$
9. Contained in left side of heart.....Contained in right side of heart
10. Distribute ${O}_{2}$ to tissues........Takes away $C {O}_{2}$ from tissues
11. Loads ${O}_{2}$ at lungs.............................Unloads $C {O}_{2}$ at lungs
12. Unloads ${O}_{2}$ at tissues.........................Loads $C {O}_{2}$ at tissues

Here's another version of the table.

$1. \textcolor{w h i t e}{\ldots . \textcolor{b l a c k}{{\text{one Hb binds to 4 O"_2) .................... color(black)("one Hb binds to 1 CO}}_{2}}}$

2. color(white)( .....color(black)("97% O"_2 \ "with Hb") .............................. color(black)("23% CO"_2 \ "with Hb")

$3. \textcolor{w h i t e}{\ldots . . \textcolor{b l a c k}{\text{3% O"_2 \ "in plasma") ............................ color(black)("7% CO"_2 \ "in plasma}}}$

$4. \textcolor{w h i t e}{\ldots \ldots \textcolor{b l a c k}{\text{no O"_2 \ "in ionic form") ................... color(black)("70% CO"_2 \ "as bicarbonate ion}}}$

5. color(white)(... color(black)("blood color": \ color(red)("bright red")) .................... color(black)("blood color": \ color(darkred)("purplish red")))

$6. \textcolor{w h i t e}{\ldots \ldots . . \textcolor{b l a c k}{\text{pH = 7.42")........................................color(black)("pH = 7.36}}}$

7. color(white)(..color(black)(P_ ("O" _ 2) = "90-100 mmHg") ........................... color(black)(P_ ("O" _ 2) = "40 mmHg"))

8. color(white)(.. color(black)(P_ ("CO" _ 2) = "38-42 mmHg") ...................... color(black)( P_ ("CO" _ 2) = "44-48 mmHg"))

9. " contained on the left side" color(white)(...............color(black)("contained on the right side"))
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\ldots \ldots \ldots . . \textcolor{b l a c k}{\text{of the heart")........................................color(black)("of the heart}}}$

10. " distributes O"_2 \ "to tissues" color(white)(...........color(black)("takes away CO"_2 \ "from tissues"))

11. " loads O"_2 \ "at the lungs" color(white)(....................color(black)("unloads CO"_2 \ "at the lungs"))

12. " unloads O"_2 \ "at the tissues" color(white)(.............color(black)("loads CO"_2 \ "at the tissues"))
