An artificial mechanical red cell that revolves around the
Measures one micron in diameter.
What does it contain?
18 billion atoms inside the sphere
What kinds of atoms are inside?
Oxygen and carbon atoms
Most of them carbon dioxide atoms
like a mini tank which will be able to load
and unload gases
Gas sensors, sensors task will be to read the gas pressure
and from there determine what to do.
Might be flammable!
To be safe a flameproof-coated material will be applied.
What will the gases do?
They will disperse reasonably.
Near the lung capillaries oxygen gas pressure is high
Carbon dioxide gas pressure is low
For example: If the respirocyte were to be near the lung
capillaries the reaction of it would be to load oxygen gas
and unload carbon dioxide
Near the Oxygen-starved peripheral tissues, the carbon dioxide
gas pressure is high being oxygen gas low the opposite will
The respirocyte will have pressure sensors that will receive
instructions from doctors
Doctors will use ultrasound-like transmitters to give command
and modify their behavior
Adding one liter of respirocyte to the bloodstream might
in able you to hold your breath under water for nearly four-hours
without any movement
If you were sprinting, you would be able to run for at least
fifteen minutes more before breathing (Rober A.Frietas Jr.)
