How quickly does a blood cell circulate?

29 April 2012




It is about a quarter of that (10 to 15 sec) depending on clinical conditions.
Tarr L, Oppenheimer BS, Sager RV. The circulation time in various clinical conditions determined by the use of sodium dehydrocholate. American Heart Journal, 8(6): 766-786.

Says from arm to mouth. Injected in the arm and taste response when reaching the tongue unless my reading skills / understanding are poor.

does it take a minute for your blood to circulate through your whole body?
