How do athletes use blood to enhance performance? There are several ways. These include the infusion of actual blood, the use of erythropoietin, and high-altitude training. Before exploring each of these techniques, we must take a brief detour into the world of hematology (the study of blood). OXYGEN AND THE BODY As you probably know, oxygen is absolutely essential for life. The heart and circulatory system are responsible for delivering oxygen throughout the body. 5 For the athlete, the amount of oxygen that he or she can process and the time it takes for this oxygen to be delivered to the parts of the body that need it most play a major role in determining performance.

In this simple process, an athlete injects blood into his or her own body, thereby increasing his or her total amount of blood. With more blood and, more importantly, more red blood cells, the athlete is able to accept and use more oxygen at a quicker pace. As a result, the muscles are able to work harder and longer before they get tired, which increases the athlete’s endurance. There are two main forms of infusion. The oldest, called homologous blood doping, is when an athlete accepts blood from another person (usually a relative) and adds it to his or her system just before an athletic competition.

1). Dendrites are long branches that extend from the neuron and bring information into the cell. Axons are long projections from the neuron that send information away. Neurons are separated from each other by a tiny space called a synaptic cleft, or synapse. 2). It is widely accepted that stimulants such as amphetamine and cocaine encourage neurotransmitters to increase levels of dopamine, a chemical substance that produces a variety of physiological reactions and is related to the production of epinephrine, which creates adrenaline (explaining the stimulating effect).
