Which of the following statements best explains why CO2 and not 02 is the primary stimulus for ventilation? O Being more soluble, pCO2 more directly relates to the concentration of the gas in blood O Unlike O2, CO2 can cross the blood brain barrier The majority of O2 is transported bound to haemoglobin O CO2- generated H is the major contributor to blood pH Since the respiratory coefficient for carbohydrate metabolism is 1.0 it doesnt matter which gas is chosen
