[USPRwire, Mon Aug 19 2019] Hemoglobin is
a critical indicator of general health.
the protein in red blood cells that transports oxygen.
With anemia affecting about 25 percent of the global population and a much higher prevalence in developing countries, hemoglobin is
the most frequently performed test in POC hematology.
SpHb monitoring may provide additional insight to the directional trend of hemoglobin between invasive blood samplings--when the SpHb trend is stable and the clinician may otherwise think hemoglobin is
decreasing; when SpHb trend is rising and the clinician may otherwise think hemoglobin is
not rising fast enough; or when the SpHb trend is decreasing and the clinician may otherwise think hemoglobin is
Using genome editing to restore the hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin is
an attractive possibility, because it can be achieved relatively easily using current technologies.
a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen throughout the body.
High level of hemoglobin is
the evidence of adequate nutrition and health.
Normal adult hemoglobin is
Hemoglobin A, consisting of two alpha chains and two beta chains.
The partial pressure of [O.sub.2] at which hemoglobin is
half-saturated ([P.sub.50]) in whole blood was measured with a blood gas analyzer and found to be increased [39 mmHg; normal, 26 mmHg (1)].
the iron-containing oxygen-transport metalloprotein in the red blood cells1.
a protein found in red blood cells that carries oxygen.
a component of red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to tissues.
