pCO2 plays a really important role in oxygen transport. within the alveolus, low pCO2 and high pO2 promote the formation of hemoglobin. In tissues, high pCO2 and low pO2 favor the dissociation of an oxygen atom from the oxyhemoglobin. Hence the affinity of hemoglobin for oxygen is aggravated by the decrease in pCO2 within the blood. Therefore, oxygen is carried within the blood as oxyhemoglobin, and oxygen is dissociated from it within the tissues.Answered by Abhisek | 1 year ago
