    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

    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

  • The Effect Of Blood Saving Apparatus On Hemoglobin, Hematocrit And Transfusion

    1180 Words  | 5 Pages

    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

    INTRODUCTION Alpha (a) thalassaemia, is the most common inherited disorder of hemoglobin (Hb) synthesis worldwide and is commonly found in Southeast Asian, Mediterranean and Middle East populations (Sengcyhanh S). a-thalassaemia is a public health problem because when compared to beta (β) thalassaemia, the carrier status for a-thalassaemia cannot be detected by the usual screening methods using gel electrophoresis, high performance liquid chromatograpy (HPLC) or capillary zone electrophoresis (CE)

    Homework #9 Chapter 11: 1. The change in hemoglobin changes as the change in the oxygen in the environment occurs. Each globin usually has two polypeptide chains encoded by genes that attract oxygen molecules to different degrees. 2. The pancreas which has two types of cell clusters. A transcription factor is activated and change the expression of a gene in a way that stimulates some progenitor cells to divide. 3. Proteomics is an area where gene expression emerges. It identifies and analyzes all
