    when not enough hemoglobin is being made due most often to the lack of iron in the body. A way to help with this is by administering drugs, such as Epogen and Procrit, which can increase the hemoglobin level in the body. There is no one optimal hemoglobin level for everyone as it varies due to different factors, including sex, health, and lifestyle. One of the factors that cause hemoglobin levels to vary in people is the sex of an individual. There is no major difference in hemoglobin levels in prepubertal

    This study was aimed to assess the hemoglobin level, and associated factors to the development of neonatal infection in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). In our study of 256 neonates, the most prevalent diagnosis on admission was Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) of new born (43.00%) followed by prematurity (29.70%). Birth weight (with mean=1889g,), gestational age (mean= 34.2 weeks), hospital stay (mean=12days) and hemoglobin level (mean=14±2 g/dl) had greater odds for development of neonatal

    CHECK PLAGIARISM Hemoglobin is a protein that is found in red blood cells. It carries oxygen to different areas of the human body. Normal red blood cells are shaped like doughnuts without a hole. This shape is very flexible and allows the cells to move through large and small veins. Some people have an inherited gene that causes a slight change in the protein hemoglobin. If a person has two of these genes, then the person has a disease called sickle cell anemia. The sickle hemoglobin forms stiff rods

    Introduction: On August 20, a lab was started doing different test involving blood. The objective of the experiment was to test white blood cells (WBC), red blood cells (RBC), platelet counts, differential of WBCs, a hematocrit, a hemoglobin analysis, and also various calculated indices. All the test will indicate if a person’s blood levels are normal or if the person has an abnormal blood count. To explain what blood is, blood is a red liquid that circulates throughout the body. It also transports

    Hemoglobin is present in red blood cells of the body and transport oxygen from lungs to the rest of the human body (National, 2015). Humans carry different types of hemoglobin, but there are three common types found in the gel electrophoresis. One of the test blood that help people to diagnose any disease is the hemoglobin electrophoresis. Hemoglobin electrophoresis test looks at the different types of hemoglobin in the blood, and can help diagnose the type of anemia that the person could have (National

    Ana-Maria Sutac Biochemistry 370 11/13/2015 Hemoglobin and Sickle Cell Disease Introduction Sickle cell disease, also known as SCD, is a hereditary blood disorder that takes place due to mutation in the hemoglobin gene that is found in red blood cells. While it is said to have originated in Africa and is mostly predominant in African Americans, sickle cell disease is now common among different ethnic groups all over the world. Sickle cell anemia (HbSS) infects “an estimated 70,000 to 100,000

    One of these is to a histidine residue which lies eight residues along helix F of hemoglobin, the proximal hitidine (His F8). The sixth bond is to one of the oxygen atoms in a molecule of oxygen. Near to where the oxygen binds to the heme group is another histidine residue, the distal histidine (His E7). This serves two very important functions. First, preventing neightboring hemoglobin molecules coming into contact with one another and oxidizing to the Fe3+ state, cause no longer bind

    Results The Effect of Blood-saving Apparatus on Hemoglobin, Hematocrit and Transfusion A prospective randomized controlled trial that had 127 participants compared venous, arterial blood management (VAMP) system in relation to transfusion requirement, preserved hemoglobin and hematocrit. The study found that the VAMP was effective on conserving hemoglobin (hgb) and hematocrit (hct) (H & H); however, the study failed to show, the use of VAMP decreased the number of RBC transfused (Rezende et al
