010/29/11 page 2 Experiment Results Predict Question: Predict Question: Predict how the hematocrits of the patients living in Denver, Colorado (approximately one mile above sea level), will compare with the hematocrit levels of the patients living in Boston, Massachusetts (at sea level). Your answer : c. The hematocrits of the Denver residents will be higher than those of the Boston residents. Stop & Think Questions: Why would the hemoglobin levels of an anemic patient be lower than the hemoglobin levels of a normal, healthy individual? You correctly answered: c. Because hemoglobin resides in RBCs, you would anticipate a low hematocrit level to coincide with a low hemoglobin level.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
