Is Low Hemoglobin Dangerous ?, What is a normal hemoglobin count

What Is Hemoglobin ?             Red blood cells contain hemoglobin, an essential conjugated protein. It is made up of two components, namely heme or iron component and globin or protein component. These iron molecules found in hemoglobin have a strong affinity towards oxygen.More...

Is Low Hemoglobin Dangerous ?

Hemoglobin is present in the red blood cells and causes the cell to turn red in color every time it picks up an oxygen molecule. It is responsible for carrying oxygen to every single cell in our body. It is made up of two components namely, heme (iron part) and globin (the protein molecule), therefore it is called hemoglobin.More...

 

Structure Of Hemoglobin And Myoglobin

Structure Of Hemoglobin And Myoglobin

Hemoglobin and myoglobin are involved in carrying oxygen to different cells and tissues in the body. While myoglobin is specifically concentrated in the muscles and is responsible for supplying oxygen to muscles cells and tissues, hemoglobin has a more generalized role and carries oxygen to different cells all over the body. They differ in terms of compositions and their structural make up but are similar in function. More...

What Is A Normal Hemoglobin Count ?

What Is A Normal Hemoglobin Count ?

Hemoglobin is the oxygen carrier found in red blood cells. When it binds with oxygen, it turns red in color and giving the characteristic color to blood. It drops of oxygen to different cells and tissues. It then combines with carbon dioxide and carries them to the lungs for expiration. A decrease in hemoglobin levels will lead to decreased oxygen levels in the body. This in turn will affect the normal functioning of every single cell and tissue leading to complete impairment.More...
