Blood Physiology: Castillo, Calderon, Aquino Blood functions: 1. Primary function: Homeostatic function (constancy of internal environment) 2.

Respiratory function: Transport of O2 from lung to tissues and elimination of CO2 from lungs 3. Nutritive function: Transport of nutritive materials from intestines to all other body parts 4. Excretory function: Transport of tissue aste produ!ts to the "idneys for elimination #. Transport of internal secretions from se!retory effe!tor !ells $.
