A compound formed by the combination of hemoglobin and oxygen. It is a complex in which the oxygen is bound directly to the iron without causing a change from the ferrous to the ferric state.
Minor hemoglobin components of human erythrocytes designated A1a, A1b, and A1c. Hemoglobin A1c is most important since its sugar moiety is glucose covalently bound to the terminal amino acid of the beta chain. Since normal glycohemoglobin concentrations exclude marked blood glucose fluctuations over the preceding three to four weeks, the concentration of glycosylated hemoglobin A is a more reliable index of the blood sugar average over a long period of time.

The determination of hemoglobin and myoglogin residues as a parameter for testing heat exposure in back bacon. (1/8574)

The use of an extraction of the heme pigments hemoglobin and myoglobin as a test for the heat exposure of back bacon was investigated by treating back bacon at varying temperatures of 50-70 degrees C and times of two to 180 minutes and observing the effect on the absorbance of heme pigment residue after nitrite oxidation. Absorbance at 409 nm was used in place of the more usual 540 nm to provide greater sensitivity in the detection of heme. A decrease in residual heme pigments was time-dependent, particularly at lower temperatures. In view of this factor and the complex nature of the heat exposure of a large block of back bacon, the application of this test would require a calibration of each process. Alternatively, limits to the amounts of heme pigment residue could be set. The heme pigment test is useful in its simplicity and overcomes difficulties associated with the coagulation and enzyme tests.  (+info)

Thiamine deficiency is prevalent in a selected group of urban Indonesian elderly people. (2/8574)

This cross-sectional study involved 204 elderly individuals (93 males and 111 females). Subjects were randomly recruited using a list on which all 60-75 y-old-people living in seven sub-villages in Jakarta were included. The usual food intake was estimated using semiquantitative food frequency questionnaires. Hemoglobin, plasma retinol, vitamin B-12, red blood cell folate and the percentage stimulation of erythrocyte transketolase (ETK), as an indicator of thiamine status, were analyzed. Median energy intake was below the assessed requirement. More than 75% of the subjects had iron and thiamine intakes of approximately 2/3 of the recommended daily intake, and 20.2% of the study population had folate intake of approximately 2/3 of the recommended daily intake. Intakes of vitamins A and B-12 were adequate. Biochemical assessments demonstrated that 36.6% of the subjects had low thiamine levels (ETK stimulation > 25%). The elderly men tended to have lower thiamine levels than the elderly women. The overall prevalence of anemia was 28.9%, and the elderly women were affected more than the elderly men. Low biochemical status of vitamins A, B-12 and RBC folate was found in 5.4%, 8.8 % and 2.9% of the subjects, respectively. Dietary intakes of thiamine and folate were associated with ETK stimulation and plasma vitamin B-12 concentration (r = 0.176, P = 0.012 and r = 0.77, P = 0.001), respectively. Results of this study suggest that anemia, thiamine and possibly vitamin B-12 deficiency are prevalent in the elderly living in Indonesia. Clearly, micronutrient supplementation may be beneficial for the Indonesian elderly population living in underprivileged areas.  (+info)

Subunit dissociation in fish hemoglobins. (3/8574)

The tetramer-dimer dissociation equilibria (K 4,2) of several fish hemoglobins have been examined by sedimentation velocity measurements with a scanner-computer system for the ultracentrifuge and by flash photolysis measurements using rapid kinetic methods. Samples studied in detail included hemoglobins from a marine teleost, Brevoortia tyrannus (common name, menhaden); a fresh water teleost, Cyprinus carpio, (common name, carp); and an elasmobranch Prionace glauca (common name, blue shark). For all three species in the CO form at pH 7, in 0.1 M phosphate buffer, sedimentation coefficients of 4.3 S (typical of tetrameric hemoglobin) are observed in the micromolar concentration range. In contrast, mammalian hemoglobins dissociate appreciably to dimers under these conditions. The inability to detect dissociation in three fish hemoglobins at the lowest concentrations examined indicates that K 4,2 must have a value of 10(-8) M or less. In flash photolysis experiments on very dilute solutions in long path length cells, two kinetic components were detected with their proportions varying as expected for an equilibrium between tetramers (the slower component) and dimers (the faster component); values of K 4,2 for the three fish hemoglobins in the range 10(-9) to 10(-8) M were calculated from these data. Thus, the values of K 4,2 for liganded forms of the fish hemoglobins appear to be midway between the value for liganded human hemoglobin (K 4,2 approximately 10(-6) M) and unliganded human hemoglobin (K 4,2 approximately 10(-12) M). This conclusion is supported by measurements on solutions containing guanidine hydrochloride to enhance the degree of dissociation. All three fish hemoglobins are appreciably dissociated at guanidine concentrations of about 0.8 M, which is roughly midway between the guanidine concentrations needed to cause comparable dissociation of liganded human hemoglobin (about 0.4 M) and unliganded human hemoglobin (about 1.6 M). Kinetic measurements on solutions containing guanidine hydrochloride indicated that there are changes in both the absolute rates and the proportions of the fast and slow components, which along with other factors complicated the analysis of the data in terms of dissociation constants. Measurements were also made in solutions containing urea to promote dissociation, but with this agent very high concentrations (about 6 M) were required to give measureable dissociation and the fish hemoglobins were unstable under these conditions, with appreciable loss of absorbance spectra in both the sedimentation and kinetic experiments.  (+info)

Reactivity of cyanate with valine-1 (alpha) of hemoglobin. A probe of conformational change and anion binding. (4/8574)

The 3-fold increase in the carbamylation rate of Val-1 (alpha) of hemoglobin upon deoxygenation described earlier is now shown to be a sensitive probe of conformational change. Thus, whereas this residue in methemoglobin A is carbamylated at the same rate as in liganded hemoglobin, upon addition of inositol hexaphosphate its carbamylation rate is enhanced 30% as much as the total change in the rate between the CO and deoxy states. For CO-hemoglobin Kansas in the presence of the organic phosphate, the relative increase in the carbamylation rate of this residue is about 50%. These results indicate that methemoglobin A and hemoglobin Kansas in the presence of inositol hexaphosphate do not assume a conformation identical with deoxyhemoglobin but rather form either a mixture of R and T states or an intermediate conformation in the region around Val-1 (alpha). Studies on the mechanism for the rate enhancement in deoxyhemoglobin suggest that the cyanate anion binds to groups in the vicinity of Val-1 (alpha) prior to proton transfer and carbamylation of this NH2-terminal residue. Thus, specific removal with carboxypeptidase B of Arg-141 (alpha), which is close to Val-1 (alpha) in deoxyhemoglobin, abolishes the enhancement in carbamylation. Chloride, which has the same valency as cyanate, is a better competitive inhibitor of the carbamylation of deoxyhemoglobin (Ki = 50 mM) compared with liganded hemoglobin. Nitrate and iodide are also effective inhibitors of the carbamylation of Val-1 (alpha) of deoxyhemoglobin (Ki = 35 mM); inorganic phosphate, sulfate, and fluoride are poor competitive inhibitors. The change in pKa of Val-1 (alpha) upon deoxygenation may be due to its differential interaction with chloride.  (+info)

Aggregation of deoxyhemoglobin S at low concentrations. (5/8574)

The self-association of deoxyhemoglobin S was measured in dilute solutions (0 to 5 g/dl) by Rayleigh light scattering at 630 nm and osmometry in 0.05 M potassium phosphate buffer (pH 7.35). Weight and number average molecular weights (Mw and Mn, respectively) and the second or higher virial coefficients, B' were determined. No experimentally significant differences were observed between oxy- and deoxy-Hb S up to the concentration of 2 g/dl; their apparent average molecular weights were within experimental error. Above that concentration, both Mn and Mw of deoxy-Hb S were significantly different from that of oxy-Hb S. The negative second viral coefficent of deoxy-Hb S, observed by both techniques, is consistent with the self-association of this protein. The lack of effect of 0.4 M propylurea on the state of aggregation and the significant influence of 0.1 M NaCl suggests that polar interactions are involved in formation of these aggregates.  (+info)

O-raffinose cross-linking markedly reduces systemic and renal vasoconstrictor effects of unmodified human hemoglobin. (6/8574)

The hemodynamic effects of a 20% exchange-transfusion with different solutions of highly purified human hemoglobin A-zero (A0) were evaluated. We compared unmodified hemoglobin with hemoglobin cross-linked with O-raffinose. Unmodified hemoglobin increased systemic vascular resistance and mean arterial pressure more than the O-raffinose cross-linked hemoglobin solution (by approximately 45% and approximately 14%, respectively). Unmodified hemoglobin markedly reduced cardiac output (CO) by approximately 21%, whereas CO was unaffected by the O-raffinose cross-linked hemoglobin solution. Unmodified and O-raffinose cross-linked hemoglobin solutions increased mean arterial pressure to comparable extents ( approximately 14% and approximately 9%, respectively). Unmodified hemoglobin increased renal vascular resistance 2-fold and reduced the glomerular filtration rate by 58%. In marked contrast, the O-raffinose cross-linked hemoglobin had no deleterious effect on the glomerular filtration rate, renal blood flow, or renal vascular resistance. The extents to which unmodified and O-raffinose cross-linked hemoglobin solutions inactivated nitric oxide also were compared using three separate in vitro assays: platelet nitric oxide release, nitric oxide-stimulated platelet cGMP production, and endothelium-derived relaxing factor-mediated inhibition of platelet aggregation. Unmodified hemoglobin inactivated or oxidized nitric oxide to a greater extent than the O-raffinose cross-linked hemoglobin solutions in all three assays. In summary, O-raffinose cross-linking substantially reduced the systemic vasoconstriction and the decrease in CO induced by unmodified hemoglobin and eliminated the deleterious effects of unmodified hemoglobin on renal hemodynamics and function. We hypothesize that O-raffinose cross-linking reduces the degree of oxidation of nitric oxide and that this contributes to the reduced vasoactivity of this modified hemoglobin.  (+info)

Detection of viruses and body fluids which may contain viruses in the domestic environment. (7/8574)

The domestic environment was investigated for the presence of viruses and body fluids that may contain viruses. A range of surfaces in 39 homes (17 visited on 2 occasions) were sampled by swabbing and analysed using cell culture, reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction for enteroviral RNA, haemoglobin as a marker for blood, amylase as an indicator of urine, saliva and sweat, and protein as an indicator of general hygiene. Haemoglobin was found on 1.9% of surfaces sampled and of the positive samples 30% were from articles frequently handled. Amylase (> 5 U/l) was found in 29.3% of samples tested. Protein was found in 97.8% of samples tested. Enteroviral RNA, indicating the presence of virus, was detected in 3 out of 448 samples tested; they were from a tap handle, telephone handpiece and a toilet bowl. No viruses were isolated in cell culture, however significant problems were encountered with bacterial and fungal contamination. This work demonstrates that only testing environmental samples for bacteria and ATP may not give a total view of the microbiological problem in the home. A range of test methods is useful to gain a broad view of the problems of hygiene in the home and to allow comparative studies of specific areas such as the kitchen and bathroom.  (+info)

Amino acid sequences of the alpha and beta chains of adult hemoglobin of the slender loris, Loris tardigradus. (8/8574)

alpha and beta chains from adult hemoglobin of the slender loris (Loris tardigradus) were isolated by Amberlite CG-50 column chromatography. After S-aminoethylation, both chains were digested with trypsin and the amino acid sequences of the tryptic peptides obtained were analyzed. Further, the order of these tryptic peptides in each chain was deduced from their homology with the primary structures of alpha and beta chains of human adult hemoglobin. Comparing the primary structures of the alpha and beta chains of adult hemoglobin of the slender loris thus obtained with those of adult hemoglobin of the slow loris, 4 amino acid substitutions in the alpha chains and 2 in the beta chains were recognized.  (+info)

The purpose of this review was to investigate the effect of vitamin D supplements on hemoglobin concentration in subjects aged 17.5-68 years old; using randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Relevant RCT studies were identified from January 2000 to January 2019 by using MeSH terms in PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, Clinical trials, Scopus databases and gray literature. The studies were reviewed systematically, and quality assessments were evaluated by the guidelines of the Cochrane risk of bias. The effect of vitamin D supplements (n = 14) on hemoglobin concentration was considered as primary outcome, while its effects on the levels of ferritin, transferrin saturation and iron status were derived as secondary outcomes. In total, 1385 subjects with age range of 17.5 to 68 years old were examined for 3 h to 6 months; Mean (standard deviation) or median interquartile changes in the hemoglobin concentration in each treatment group was recorded for meta-analysis. Fourteen RCTs met the inclusion criteria.

By introducing an additional H-bond in the alpha(1)beta(2) subunit interface or altering the charge properties of the amino acid residues in the alpha(1)beta(1) subunit interface of the hemoglobin molecule, we have designed and expressed recombinant hemoglobins (rHbs) with low oxygen affinity and high cooperativity. Oxygen-binding measurements of these rHbs under various experimental conditions show interesting properties in response to pH (Bohr effect) and allosteric effectors. Proton nuclear magnetic resonance studies show that these rHbs can switch from the oxy (or CO) quaternary structure (R) to the deoxy quaternary structure (T) without changing their ligation states upon addition of an allosteric effector, inositol hexaphosphate, and/or reduction of the ambient temperature. These results indicate that if we can provide extra stability to the T state of the hemoglobin molecule without perturbing its R state, we can produce hemoglobins with low oxygen affinity and high cooperativity.

We propose a red, green, blue (RGB)-based oximetry to assess the ocular fundus and determine its oxygen saturation (SO2) and hemoglobin concentration. The oxygenated hemoglobin concentration, deoxygenated hemoglobin concentration, and SO2 were estimated employing a method that combines Monte Carlo simulation of light transport in the fundus tissue with a multiple regression analysis. In this study, a single-layer model of the ocular fundus was employed for the Monte Carlo simulation. We constructed an experimental apparatus for measuring the fundus of a rats eye using an RGB detector and investigated the physiological response that occurs upon a change in the fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2). The resultant images of oxygenated hemoglobin concentration, deoxygenated hemoglobin concentration, total hemoglobin concentration, and SO2 indicated that the response was caused by the defective oxygenation of the blood. The results of the present study indicate the possibility of oximetry based on the ...
Abstract: Impact of Weekly Versus Daily Iron-folic Acid Supplementation for Pregnant Women with Anemia on Hemoglobin Levels, Clinical Symptoms and Subjective Complaints
Hemoglobin deficiency can be caused either by a decreased amount of hemoglobin molecules, as in anemia, or by decreased ability of each molecule to bind oxygen at the same partial pressure of oxygen. Hemoglobinopathies (genetic defects resulting in abnormal structure of the hemoglobin molecule)[74] may cause both. In any case, hemoglobin deficiency decreases blood oxygen-carrying capacity. Hemoglobin deficiency is, in general, strictly distinguished from hypoxemia, defined as decreased partial pressure of oxygen in blood,[75][76][77][78] although both are causes of hypoxia (insufficient oxygen supply to tissues). Other common causes of low hemoglobin include loss of blood, nutritional deficiency, bone marrow problems, chemotherapy, kidney failure, or abnormal hemoglobin (such as that of sickle-cell disease). The ability of each hemoglobin molecule to carry oxygen is normally modified by altered blood pH or CO2, causing an altered oxygen-hemoglobin dissociation curve. However, it can also be ...

We have used isoelectric focusing to measure the differences between the pI values of various normal and mutant human haemoglobins when completely deoxygenated and when fully liganded with CO. It was assumed that the ΔpI(deox.-ox.) values might correspond quantitatively to the intrinsic alkaline Bohr effect, as most of the anionic cofactors of the haemoglobin molecule are stripped off during the electrophoretic process. In haemoglobins known to exhibit a normal Bohr coefficient (ΔlogP50/ΔpH) in solutions, the ΔpI(deox.-ox.) values are lower the higher their respective pI(ox.) values. This indicates that for any particular haemoglobin the ΔpI(deox.-ox.) value accounts for the difference in surface charges at the pH of its pI value. This was confirmed by measuring, by the direct-titration technique, the difference in pH of deoxy and fully liganded haemoglobin A0 (α2β2) solutions in conditions approximating those of the isoelectric focusing, i.e. at 5°C and very low concentration of KCl. ...

A total of 1,377 patients with symptomatic obstructive cerebrovascular disease (most commonly, internal carotid artery occlusion) entered a trial in which they were randomized to either medical or surgical (extracranial-intracranial bypass) therapy. All but 8 had hemoglobin estimations performed at entry. The patients were followed for an average of 55.8 months. In the medical group, the 325 patients with high normal hemoglobin concentration (15 g/l or more) suffered no more ischemic strokes than the 382 patients with lower values (less than 15 g/l). Those strokes that did occur were no more severe in the high than the low hemoglobin group. Hemoglobin concentration did not emerge as a prognostic factor in those patients treated surgically (n = 662). This prospective study counters the hypothesis that high normal hemoglobin concentration is associated with poor outcome in patients with symptomatic obstructive disease of the carotid and cerebral arteries. ...

The objective of this study was to investigate the associations between maternal haemoglobin in pregnancy and trajectories of length/height and weight from birth through childhood. Methods: Data from 7,597 singleton pregnancies in the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC), an ongoing, prospective, UK population-based pregnancy cohort study were used. We examined associations between maternal haemoglobin (overall pregnancy and trimester specific) and offspring length and weight at birth, as well as trajectories of height and weight gain from birth to age 10 years derived from ...
The β-globin gene is a member of a family located on chromosome 11. As in the α-globin gene family, epsilon (∊), the most 5′ (upstream) of these genes, is expressed only in early embryos. Downstream from this gene are two tandem gamma (γ) genes whose product is found in fetal hemoglobin (Hb F, α2β2), the hemoglobin that predominates throughout most of gestation. The delta (δ) gene product forms a minor hemoglobin component, Hb A2 (α2β;2), which has no functional importance but is useful in the diagnosis of the thalassemias (discussed later in this chapter.) The most 3′ (downstream) member of the family is the β gene whose product combines with α-globin to form Hb A (α2β2), the major hemoglobin component of adult red cells. ...
We demonstrate that 5,5′-dithiobis(2-nitrobenzoate) - DTNB - reacts with only CysF9[93]β and CysB5[23]β among the multiple sulfhydryl groups of the major and minor hemoglobins of the Japanese quail (Cortunix cortunix japonica). Kequ, the equilibrium constant for the reaction, does not differ very significantly between the two hemoglobins. It decreases 430-fold between pH≈5.6 and pH≈9: from a mean of 7±1 to a mean of 0.016±0.003. Quantitative analyses of the Kequ data based on published X-ray and temperature-jump evidence for a tertiary structure transition in liganded hemoglobin enable the calculation of Krt, the equilibrium constant for the r←→t tertiary structure transition. Krt differs significantly between the two hemoglobins: 0.744±0.04 for the major, 0.401±0.01 for the minor hemoglobin. The mean pKas of the two groups whose ionizations are coupled to the DTNB reaction are about the same as previously reported for mammalian hemoglobins.. ...
The commercial feasibility of recombinant human Hb (rHb) as an O2 delivery pharmaceutical is limited by the production yield of holoprotein in E. coli. Currently the production ofrHb is not cost effective for use as a source in the development of third and fourth generation Hb-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs). The major problems appear to be aggregation and degradation of apoglobin at the nominal expression temperatures, 28-37° C, and the limited amount of free heme that is available for holohemoglobin assembly. One approach to solve the first problem is to inhibit apoglobin precipitation by a comparative mutagenesis strategy to improve apoglobin stability. aGlyl5 to Ala and P Glyl6 to Ala mutations have been constructed to increase the stability of the A helices of both subunits of adult human hemoglobin (HbA), based on comparison with the sequences of the more stable sperm whale hemoglobin subunits. Human fetal hemoglobin is also known to be more stable than HbA, and comparisons between human P ...
Our findings of significant improvement in maternal haematological outcomes as a result of iron use corroborate those of previous reviews.12 14 126 127 We noted a greater effect on haemoglobin concentration in low or middle income countries and with lower initial mean haemoglobin concentration (,110 g/L). We showed a positive, linear dose-response relation between iron dose up to 66 mg daily and risk of maternal anaemia, indicating a benefit of giving higher rather than lower doses over this range. These findings are biologically plausible, as several mechanisms regulating intestinal iron absorption have been identified.77 128 129 Human studies and animal models have shown that depleted body iron stores enhance absorptive capacity in the duodenum, which is increased several-fold in the presence of iron deficiency. Another important regulator is bone marrow erythropoiesis, which adjusts intestinal absorption in response to the erythropoietic demands. Review of epidemiological studies shows that ...
When hemoglobin levels are low you can notice fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, dizziness, headache, pale skin, brittle nails, rapid heartbeat and loss of appetite. If the levels get low significantly, the condition can be diagnosed as anemia and the symptoms may worsen.
A gene with a significant effect on regulating hemoglobin in the body has been identified as part of a genome-wide association study, which looked at the link between genes and hemoglobin level in 16,000 people. The research was carried out by scientists from Imperial College London and published in Nature Genetics today. It shows a strong association between a gene known as TMPRSS6 and the regulation of hemoglobin.. Hemoglobin is contained within red blood cells and is essential for transporting oxygen around the body. Problems with hemoglobin production cause common diseases, such as anemia, which comes from low levels of hemoglobin and is found in 25% of the worlds population.. This new finding is critical: understanding how hemoglobin levels are controlled at a genetic level has significant public health implications for people of all ages in developing and developed countries, explains Dr John Chambers, from the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at Imperial College London and ...
Hemoglobin (Hb) is a conjugated protein present in red blood cells. It carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, and carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs. It is made up of heme and globin. The heme group is an iron complex, containing one iron atom. Iron is essential for the primary function of the hemoglobin, the transport of oxygen. When reduced hemoglobin is exposed to oxygen at increased pressure, oxygen is taken up at the iron atom until each molecule of hemolecule at each iron atom. The Hb molecule when fully saturated with oxygen, that is, four oxygen molecules combined with one hemoglobin molecule, is called oxy-hemoglobin. One gram of hemoglobin carries 1.34 ml of oxygen. Hemoglobin returning with carbon dioxide from the tissues is called reduced hemoglobin ...

The effects of the recommended dose of 200 mg iron and of half that dose injected on the first day of life on health, iron status and performance during the 4 week suckling period were studied in 2123 piglets. All piglets received creep feed and soil which was supplemented with 14 g iron per kg. Neither mortality nor the prevalence of arthritis, meningitis and foot abscess (each disease affecting about 1% of the piglets) differed between the two groups. The low dose of 100 mg iron decreased blood haemoglobin concentration at weaning (110 ± 19 vs.120 ± 15 g/l), but did not affect growth rate.. ...
Low levels of hemoglobin are most commonly caused by nutritional deficiencies. There are many ways to increase hemoglobin, including eating the right foods.
This is a very useful blood test, done by the laboratory, to see how you have been doing overall with respect to the blood sugars. Hemoglobin is a protein that stays in the blood for about 90 days and is easily measured. The glucose in your blood can attach chemically to any proteins present, and stay attached permanently. The amount that attaches to the protein depends on how high the blood glucose is. For example, if glucose is high, more of it attaches to the protein; if glucose is low, very little attaches. The glucose stays attached until the hemoglobin molecule is broken down naturally by the body. The amount of hemoglobin with glucose attached to it is measured and compared with the total amount of hemoglobin present. This indicates how high the blood glucose has been, at some time in the life of the hemoglobin. For instance, if your glucose was high one month ago, then more glucose would have attached to the hemoglobin molecule at that time, and this could still be measured now. ...

In S trait, the percentage of hemoglobin S (roughly 35%) is not usually sufficient to cause significant sickling, and the condition is relatively benign. With hemoglobin O-Arab, there is no tendency to sickle, even in the homozygous state. It is the interaction between these two singly-substituted hemoglobins S (ß6 Glu → Val) and O-Arab (ß121 Glu → Lys) that forms insoluble copolymers with a different shape to SS polymers. Characteristically, RBC indices are normal in this condition, which helps differentiate it from SC disease and SS disease. There are very few actual sickle shaped cells, rather the cells have a flattened aspect and are described as folded, similar in shape to the microcytic cells seen in S/C disease.. The distinction between hemoglobin S/O-Arab and the more common hemoglobin S/C disease is often a difficult call from the laboratory viewpoint. In both instances, the variant hemoglobins are present in equal relative percentages once the hemoglobin F is subtracted. ...
The study included 40 children undergoing neurosurgery for brain tumors or other diseases. During surgery, all patients underwent continuous, noninvasive SpHb monitoring using the Radical-7 device.. Regular monitoring of hemoglobin-the oxygen-carrying compound in the blood-is important to avoid anemia (low hemoglobin levels). Conventionally, this is done by taking frequent blood samples for direct hemoglobin measurement. But frequent blood sampling can actually contribute to the development of anemia. Because of their smaller blood volume, this risk is particularly high in children..

Anaemia in pregnancy continues to be a huge public health problem worldwide with multiple adverse outcomes on both mother and child especially in developing countries. The causes of anaemia among pregnant women (PW) are multifactorial and may be associated with inadequate dietary intake of iron-rich foods. The aim of the study was to evaluate the impact of a nutrition education (NE) intervention on haemoglobin (Hb) levels, knowledge and dietary intake of anaemic PW in Gomoa East (GE) district of the Central region of Ghana. A total of 130 anaemic PW(Hb level 7-11 g/dl) in second trimester who were attending antenatal care (ANC) in four health centres (Buduatta, Ojobi, Okyereko and Nyanyano) were recruited and randomly assigned to an intervention group, IG (n=65) to receive specific NE on anaemia and iron- rich foods in addition to general NE; or control group, CG (n=65) to receive general NE. The education sessions were on individual, face to face basis done through biweekly home visits and ...

What is it? Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (abbreviated as MCH) is an estimate of the amount of hemoglobin in an average red blood cell. Hemoglobin is a substance in the blood that carries oxygen to the cells in the body from the lungs. High hemoglobin content is often referred to as hyperchromia, and low content, hypochromia.…
Background. Regional differences in haemoglobin values and process care measures were examined using data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services End‐Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Clinical Performance Measures Project. It was posited that regional differences in haemoglobin values are consequent upon differences in components of clinical practice.. Methods. A national random sample of 8336 adult, in‐centre haemodialysis patients, stratified by the 18 regional ESRD Networks, was drawn. Information was collected for October-December 1998. Multivariable stepwise linear and logistic regression analyses were performed to identify variables associated with haemoglobin. Linear regression analysis was used to identify variables associated with Epo/Hb index (mean weight‐adjusted treatment level erythropoietin (Epo) dose divided by mean haemoglobin).. Results. The percentage of patients with haemoglobin concentration ,11 g/dl ranged from 34 to 52% across ESRD Networks. In addition to ...

We aimed to examine if normalization of haemoglobin with epoetin alfa in pre-dialysis and dialysis patients further improves QoL and is safe. Methods. 416 Scandinavian patients with renal anaemia [pre-dialysis, haemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis patients] were randomized to reach a normal haemoglobin of 135-160 g/l (n = 216) or a subnormal haemoglobin of 90-120 g/l (n = 200) with or without epoetin alfa. Study duration was 48-76 weeks. QoL was measured using Kidney Disease Questionnaires in 253 Swedish dialysis patients. Safety was examined in all patients. Results. QoL improved, measured as a decrease in physical symptoms (P = 0.02), fatigue (P = 0.05), depression (P = 0.01) and frustration (P = 0.05) in the Swedish dialysis patients when haemoglobin was normalized. In pre-dialysis patients, diastolic blood pressure was higher in ...
Haemoglobin, found in red blood cells, transports oxygen throughout the body from the lungs. The production of haemoglobin happens in the bone marrow, which should also regulate the amount it produces. A low haemoglobin level, a condition known as anaemia, is fairly common and has serious effects.
Obviously, during pregnancy, the entire volume of blood increases significantly, which is one of the primary reasons for the reduction in hemoglobin and the concentration of red blood cells in the body. This process also includes a triggering mechanism for the development of anemia.. A high level of hemoglobin usually suggests that there are too many erythrocytes in the blood. The medical concept is erythrocytosis. This process causes a number of concomitant complications, because it can disrupt blood circulation and lead to its unregulated clotting.. It is very important to have a normal level of hemoglobin just before the pregnancy itself, during the whole period, and naturally after the birth. Regular check of the level of hemoglobin is very important to ensure that the proper level of hemoglobin remains stable.. In the case of anemia, as one of the ways to treat a low level of hemoglobin, the doctor can prescribe iron-containing drugs and special supplements to bring the level to ...

What emerged was that, after training, the brains of those who had received stimulation had lower peak concentrations of blood haemoglobin.. This suggests the brain may not have been working as hard to achieve the same results. The authors think this may be because the relevant brain regions are displaying: more efficient neurovascular coupling.. The results of this study provide encouragement for those looking for ways to enhance cognitive function. ...
From three data partner sites within the Mini-Sentinel Distributed Database, we identified NSAID initiators aged ≥18 years between 2008 and 2013. Numbers of events and risks within 30 days after NSAID initiation were calculated for four mutually exclusive outcomes: (1) inpatient UGI diagnosis of bleeding or gastric ulcer (standard claims-based definition without laboratory results); (2) non-inpatient UGI diagnosis AND ≥3 g/dl hemoglobin decrease; (3) ≥3 g/dl hemoglobin decrease without UGI diagnosis in any clinical setting; (4) non-inpatient UGI diagnosis, without ≥3 g/dl hemoglobin decrease. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Reductive hydroxyethylation of hemoglobin A. Functional properties of hemoglobin A selectively hydroxyethylated or dihydroxypropylated at the α-amino groups. AU - Acharya, A. S.. AU - Sussman, L. G.. PY - 1983/12/1. Y1 - 1983/12/1. N2 - The reactivity of the amino groups of hemoglobin A toward reductive hydroxyethylation with glycolaldehyde in the presence of NaCNBH3 has been investigated. The α-amino groups of the α- and β-chains of hemoglobin A are the most reactive amino groups of the protein for reductive hydroxyethylation; both sites are about equally reactive. Similarly, on reaction of hemoglobin A with glyceraldehyde in the presence of NaCNBH3, the α-amino groups of both the α- and β-chains of the protein undergo selective reductive dihydroxypropylation. Modification of the α-amino groups of hemoglobin A either by reductive hydroxyethylation or reductive dihydroxypropylation apparently lowers the pK(α) of the α-amino groups and results in an early elution of the ...

In the blood gas analyser, the haemoglobin concentration is measured directly, using visible absorption spectroscopy. The local unit features a 128-wavelength spectrophotometer with a measuring range of 478-672 nm. Absorption spectroscopy is based on Lambert-Beers law, which relates the properties of transmitted light to the properties of the substance through which it is transmitted. The absorbance, in this scenario, is defined as the logarithm of the ratio of the light intensity before and after transmission through the compound. Each haemoglobin species has a different extinction coefficient (ε) and these are known from empiric measurements.
The MCH or mean cell hemoglobin represents the absolute amount of hemoglobin in the average red blood cell in a sample. Its units are picograms (pg) per cell. The MCH is calculated from the hemoglobin concentration (Hgb) and the RBC count using the following equation:. MCH (pg) = (Hgb x 10) ÷ RBC. This value usually tracks with the mean cell volume as it is dependent on the volume of red blood cells and is generally a less useful measure than MCV or MCHC, which we use to characterize an anemia (e.g. microcytic hypochromic). For example, a low MCH could be due to smaller than normal cells with normal Hb concentration or normal sized cells with lower than normal Hb concentration. It is better to know the values for cell volume (MCV) and Hb concentration (Hgb) directly. Laser-based hematology analyzers also provide results for the hemoglobin content within intact red blood cells, i.e. this is measured directly by high angle light scatter of the laser versus being a calculated value. This is called ...
Hemoglobin is very vital to the life of any individual and it must be measured regularly to ensure that you do not fall below or even above the normal level. Hemoglobin is so pivotal that the dreaded sickle cell condition stems from it. Sickle cell is simply a condition where the quality of hemoglobin in the body is defective. This then leads to abnormally shaped red blood cells that find it very difficult to go through blood vessels. The resultant effect of all these is that the body does not have enough oxygen flowing through it. It therefore, means that all the terrible symptoms of sickle cell such as bone pain, chest pain, and body ache are simply as a result of defective hemoglobin.. The sickle cell condition was used to explain the importance of hemoglobin so that youll take the matter very seriously. Consciously watch the food items and fruits you eat. Ensure that they are rich in iron and that they do not prevent the absorption of iron into your body. If you have been diagnosed of low ...
Researchers assessed the relationship between an individuals initial hemoglobin response to darbepoetin, a commonly used ESA, and clinical outcomes, and found that patients who had the least increase in hemoglobin to the first two doses of darbepoetin were at greatest risk of death or cardiovascular events, yet received the highest doses of the drug. This research appears in the September 16 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.. In dialysis patients with very low hemoglobins, ESAs are credited with improved quality of life and reduced need for blood transfusions. Their use in patients with chronic kidney disease not on dialysis is more controversial, with recent studies suggesting worse outcomes at higher compared with lower hemoglobin targets when this population is treated with ESAs. In the Trial to Reduce Cardiovascular Events with Aranesp Therapy (TREAT), patients with type 2 diabetes, anemia and chronic kidney disease not on dialysis were randomly assigned to receive placebo or ...
In the US today, blood transfusion is safer than ever. Nevertheless, the century-old quest for a suitable blood substitute persists. The elimination of unwanted side effects, especially transfusion-transmitted diseases, the problems and high cost factor involved in collecting and storing human blood, the pending worldwide shortages, and the need for compatibility testing are the driving forces contributing towards the development of blood substitutes. The leading research is focusing on hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs), which are limited in clinical application due to the pressor effect they induce. In this study, the mechanisms through which HBOCs affect mean arterial pressure (MAP), arteriolar diameter, and nitric oxide levels in the microcirculation were investigated, using Oxyglobin (HBOC-301), a third generation glutaraldehyde-polymerized bovine hemoglobin. The spinotrapezius muscle of female Sprague-Dawley rats was exteriorized for microcirculatory observations. HBOC in doses of 0.1, 1.0,
Reduced P50-Free hemoglobin in plasma has a lower P50 than hemoglobin contained in RBCs. Functionally, the difference can be thought of as a left shift in the hemoglobin dissociation curve, where free hemoglobin holds more tightly to oxygen at a given O2 tension and will only release O2 if the O2 tension is very low. Hemoglobin contained in RBCs has a P50 of 26-28 mm Hg. Hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs) have reduced P50 of 10-16 mm Hg. Hemoglobin dimers, which are spontaneous split products of free hemoglobin, lose the cooperative binding properties of the hemoglobin tetramer. These dimers have a hemoglobin dissociation curve similar to that of myoglobin, and will only release oxygen at O2 tensions as low as 5 mm Hg. ...
The isolated minor haemoglobin fractions (haemoglobin D) of ostrich, chicken and duck haemoglobin, which constitute about 30% of total intracellular haemoglobin, form crystalline aggregates upon deoxygenation at physiological temperature, ionic strength and pH and at haemoglobin concentrations even well below those present in the red cell. The aggregation is reversed by oxygenation, and can be inhibited by addition of organic phosphates or the corresponding major haemoglobin fraction in a stoichiometric ratio of 1:1. Embryonic haemoglobin from chicken has similar characteristics with respect to its solubility. The results indicate close functional homology of alpha D and embryonic pi-chains as well as a novel role for organic phosphates in the regulation of haemoglobin function. ...

A process for preparing a stroma-free hemoglobin solution is provided. The process includes washing blood cells to remove noncellular components to obtain a mixture of erythrocytes and leukocytes. The leukocytes are removed from the mixture and the erythrocytes are lysed to form a mixture of stroma and hemoglobin. The stroma is precipitated from the hemoglobin by treating the stroma-hemoglobin mixture with a polyvalent cation; a polysulfate, and a polyvalent anion. The supernatant hemoglobin solution is separated and dialyzed to obtain a substantially pure hemoglobin solution.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Optimum control of oxygen affinity of hemoglobin as an oxygen carrier solution for an artificial gill. AU - Nagase, K.. AU - Matsuda, N.. AU - Sakai, K.. PY - 2002. Y1 - 2002. N2 - An artificial gill was developed using a concentrated hemoglobin solution as an oxygen carrier solution, with the oxygen affinity controlled by temperature. Oxygen affinity of the concentrated hemoglobin solution was optimized for the artificial gill by adding inositol hexaphosphate as an allosteric effector and varying the pH and temperature. The oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve shifted to the right with increased ratios of inositol hexaphosphate to hemoglobin, decreased pH values, and higher temperatures. The optimum ratio of inositol hexaphosphate to hemoglobin was 5:1. Because lower pH promotes proton oxidation of hemoglobin, the optimum pH was 6.9. The oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve shifted to the right with higher temperatures. The amount of the shift in relation to temperature change was ...
Developing blood substitutes is in urgent demand for chronic blood shortage all over the world. In this connection, the oxygen binding behavior of hemoglobin-based oxygen carriers (HBOCs) is one of the most important characteristics. However, present methods available for estimating oxygen binding behavior have need of expensive apparatus, and also are not suitable for high-throughput and the time-course analysis. To overcome these problems, we proposed a simple analysis method for the time-course oxygen binding behavior of HBOCs, which employs a general UV-Vis microplate reader and a common reagent, sodium dithionite, as a reductant for HBOCs and an oxygen scavenger. Our method enabled time-course oxygen binding behavior analysis of HBOCs in a simple manner, and obtained data corresponding with those by the conventional method. Thus, our developed method will accelerate the development of HBOCs due to easy oxygen binding analysis.. ...

Background: Hemoglobin based oxygen carriers (HBOC) offer a potential adjunct to improve early re-oxygenation of ischemic tissue. However, the optimal oxygen content and oxygen affinity of the HBOC solution to optimize myocardial re-oxygenation is not known. Our objective was to compare myocardial recovery following reperfusion with 3 unique HBOC solutions, each with different oxygen affinity.. Methods: 3 HBOC solutions were prepared to a standard concentration of 2.5g/dL in modified Krebs Henseleit buffer, and oxygenated with either room air (RA) or with 100% oxygen (O2). Hearts isolated from male Sprague-Dawley rats underwent 25 min of global ischemia and then were reperfused for the first 10 min with one of the HBOCs; 1) HBOCR, (polymerized bovine hemoglobin fixed in relaxed, deoxygenated state) P50 = 2.4 mm Hg, n=8, 2) HBOCT (polymerized bovine hemoglobin fixed in tense, oxygenated state) P50 = 48 mm Hg, n=8, or 3) HgbB (isolated bovine hemoglobin) P50 = 29 mm Hg, n=8. All hearts were ...
Fetal hemoglobin, or foetal haemoglobin, (also hemoglobin F, HbF, or α2γ2) is the main oxygen transport protein in the human fetus during the last seven months of development in the uterus and persists in the newborn until roughly 6 months old. Functionally, fetal hemoglobin differs most from adult hemoglobin in that it is able to bind oxygen with greater affinity than the adult form, giving the developing fetus better access to oxygen from the mothers bloodstream. In newborns, fetal hemoglobin is nearly completely replaced by adult hemoglobin by approximately 6 months postnatally, except in a few thalassemia cases in which there may be a delay in cessation of HbF production until 3-5 years of age. In adults, fetal hemoglobin production can be reactivated pharmacologically, which is useful in the treatment of diseases such as sickle-cell disease. Oxygenated blood is delivered to the fetus via the umbilical vein from the placenta, which is anchored to the wall of the mothers uterus. The ...
Background: The development of cerebral infarction after transient ischemia is attributed to postischemic delayed hypoperfusion in the microvascular region. In the present study, we assessed the microvascular perfusion capacity of infused liposome-encapsulated hemoglobin (LEH) in a therapeutic approach for transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (tMCAO). Methods: Two-hour middle cerebral artery occlusion rats were immediately subjected to intra-arterial infusion of LEH (LEH group) or saline (vehicle group) or no treatment (control group), and then to recanalization. Neurological findings, infarct and edema progression, microvascular endothelial dysfunction, and inflammatory reactions were compared between the 3 groups after 24 hours of reperfusion. Microvascular perfusion in the early phase of reperfusion was evaluated by hemoglobin immunohistochemistry and transmission electron microscopy. Results: The LEH group achieved significantly better results in all items evaluated than the other ...

To the editors: The letter of Holt and colleagues (1) emphasizes that diabetic subjects with hemoglobin S or C traits will have a falsely low hemoglobin A1c value if measured by certain methods. We also have observed this finding but would like to highlight another common condition which alters hemoglobin A1c values. Persons with the trait or who are homozygous for the hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin will have a falsely elevated hemoglobin A1c value (2) because hemoglobin F co-elutes with the hemoglobin A1c fraction. Some patients who were referred to our institution for presumed diabetes based on an elevated ...

Hemoglobin measurement at 540nm or 430nm? According to some literature the release of hemoglobin from erythrocytes after the addition of surfactants is measured at 540 nm. We measure a much higher absorption at 430 nm compared to 540 which is consistent with the fact that hemoglobin is red. Does anybody know why I should measure hemoglobin release at 540 nm in stead of 430 nm? Thanks in advance, Leendert Hamoen ...

The QpHb1 gene is the first nonsymbiotic Hb gene that has been isolated from oak roots and characterized. The QpHb1 deduced protein shows characteristic features of other plant Hbs (Fig. 1). These include the CD1 phenylalanine, C2 proline and F8 proximal histidine residues needed for heme binding, and the E7 distal histidine which is involved in ligand binding (Ota et al., 1997). A cysteine residue found in most known plant nonsymbiotic Hbs is also present in QpHb1. Sequence comparison also confirmed the presence of the plant Hbs signature (SN)-P-x-(LV)-x(2)-H-A-x(3)-F (Dickerson & Geis, 1983). Based on these structural features, QpHb1 can be categorized as a class 1 nonsymbiotic Hb. Furthermore, the phylogenic analysis of QpHb1 with other known Hb sequences available in public resources highlights the fact that QpHb1 forms a cluster together with other woody species (Trema tomentosa, Trema orientalis, Parasponia andersonii, Alnus firma, Malus domestica), indicating its close primary structural ...

AU - Paroni, R.. AU - Fermo, I.. AU - Mosca, A.. PY - 1989. Y1 - 1989. N2 - We compared the performance of two highly resolving methods, chromatofocusing (CRF) and isoelectric focusing in immobilized pH gradients (IPGF), for the separation of human hemoglobin variants. Lysates containing 13 different hemoglobins, including variants of clinical and geographical importance, and four electrophoretically silent variants (Hb Brockton, Hb Cheverly, Hb Koln, and Hb Waco) were analyzed. Both techniques showed a good intrarun precision (CV = 0.87% for CRF, 0.27% for IPGF) and high and similar resolving power (0.010 pH units, with the pH gradients used in this work). The use of an ultranarrow IPGF range (pH 7.15-7.35; pH gradient = 0.019 pH/cm) allowed the resolution between Hb Brockton, Hb Koln, and Hb A. In some cases ...

In addition, the number of abnormal hematological findings observed over this period of time was investigated. We also studied whether there were differences in Hb concentration between top ranked and lower ranked skaters, and whether a relationship between Hb concentration and competitive results could be observed. The present study shows that the mean Hb level in male and female junior and senior long track speed skaters remained fairly stable and did not change from 2000 through 2005. The number and percentage of abnormal hematological findings were found to vary ...

Study design: Eligible term-infants of anemic (maternal Hb,11.0 g dl-1) and non-anemic mothers (Hb ≥11.0 g dl-1) were randomized to LUCM or control groups (N=100 each). In the LUCM group, the umbilical cord was clamped at 40-cm length and milked. The control group had the cord clamped at 5 cm and not milked. Neonatal morbidities until discharge and Hb and serum ferritin at 6 months of age were compared. ...
Although fecal hemoglobin concentration (f-Hb) was highly associated with the risk of colorectal neoplasms, current studies on this subject are hampered by skewedness of the data and the ordinal property of f-Hb has not been well studied yet. Our aim was to develop a quantile-based method to estimate adjusted percentiles (median) of fecal hemoglobin concentration and their derived prediction for the risk of multistage outcomes of colorectal disease. We used a 6-year follow-up cohort of Taiwanese nationwide colorectal screening program with fecal immunochemical testing (FIT) to obtain fecal hemoglobin concentration and applied accelerated failure time multi-variable analyses to make the comparison of adjusted median and other percentitles of fecal hemoglobin across four categories of colorectal carcinogenesis. We then predicted the risk of colorectal neoplasms on the basis of the corresponding percentile values by using accelerated failure time model with Bayesian inversion method. The adjusted median
A disease that affects many individualss hemoglobin funtionalities is sickle cell anemia, which cause by substitution of Valine instead of Glutamate at position 6 in amino acid sequence. Symptoms occur when an individual is several months old. Sickle cell anemia is characterized by decreased breath intake, delayed growth and development, fever, jaundice, rapid heart rate, and many other ailments. The problem is that hemoglobin in these indivudals are mutated. This mutated form of hemoglobin is called hemoglobin S and is less soluble than regular hemoglobin forms. Examination of the structure of hemoglobin S reveals that a new valine residue lies on the surface of the T-state molecule. As a result of this change deoxyhemoglobin has a hydrophobic patch on its surface. The hydrophobic patch interacts with other hydrophobic patches causing the molecule to aggregate into strands that align into insoluble fibers. Because this mutated form cannot move freely when they accumulate in the blood stream ...

The role of the amino acid at position α38 in haemoglobin has been probed using site-directed mutagenesis. When the Thr residue at position α38 (which is totally conserved in all mammals) is changed to a Gln, the equilibrium properties of the protein are significantly altered. Equilibrium and kinetic data show that the R-state properties of the protein are essentially unaffected by the mutation whilst the allosteric equilibrium and T-state properties are changed. Mutation of the naturally occurring Gln38 of the human embryonic haemoglobin ζ-chain (the only known non-Thr containing globin) to a Thr residue shows the converse change in properties produced by the adult mutation, although in this case the situation is complicated by significant chain heterogeneity in the T state. An extension of the two-state model of co-operativity is presented to describe quantitatively the equilibrium ligand binding in the presence of T-state chain heterogeneity. A molecular model is described in which the ...

Upon division of the sample into an iron-deficient and iron-sufficient group only (i.e. only on the basis of TfS ,25%), the mean CHr values were 24.74% and 28.67%, respectively, revealing a statistically significant difference (t=-4.34; p,0.01) (Table 3).. Red blood cell parameters, S-ferritin and S-transferrin values are presented in Table 4. A statistically significant difference was found between the groups for mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) (p=0.027), S-transferrin (p=0.0002) and CHr (p=0.0001).. The sensitivity of a CHr value ,29 pg to detect ID was 86% (95% CI 77.3 - 93.1) and the specificity was 50% (95% CI 26.0 - 74.0).. An unexpected finding was that a group of children who presented with a TfS ,25% (i.e. iron-sufficient) had an Hb level ,11 g/dl (i.e. anaemic), but a CHr level ,29 pg (Table 5). The TfS is calculated by using the S-iron and S-transferrin values; therefore, a low S-transferrin with a normal S-iron level will result in a normal TfS value. The known causes for low ...
There are food security risks in many refugee-source countries,252 as prolonged food deprivation and inadequate access to nutritious food and clean water are common. After arrival in Australia there still may be issues of food insecurity, 253,254 poor access to healthy foods and consequent under-nutrition. Specific issues include: low weight and/or height-for-age in children, vitamin deficiencies, iron deficiency and anaemia. As well as the potential for under-nutrition, there are increasing problems with dyslipidaemia and obesity and the associated risks of developing non-communicable diseases (NCDs chapter 14). The period of early settlement is a window for health promotion about nutrition.. Anaemia (defined as a low blood haemoglobin concentration with normal ranges depending on gender, age and pregnancy status) has been reported in adults from refugee-like backgrounds in Australia.

Causes. Thalassemia is a genetic disorder, is caused by mutations in the DNA of cells that make hemoglobin. The mutations associated with thalassemia are passed from parents to children. The mutations that cause thalassemia disrupt the normal production of hemoglobin and cause low hemoglobin levels and a high rate of red blood cell destruction.. Thalassemia occurs when there is a defect in a gene that helps control production of one of these proteins and if the genes responsible do not produce enough of alpha or beta chains, the red cells cannot carry hemoglobin properly. The result would be anemia which starts in early childhood and lasts all through life.. Types. The type of thalassemia you have depends on the number of gene mutations you inherit from your parents and which part of the hemoglobin molecule is affected by the mutations. Hemoglobin molecules are made of alpha and beta chains that can be affected by mutations. Where the genes do not produce enough alpha chains, the condition is ...
Avoiding secondary injury is of paramount importance in managing traumatic brain injury (TBI). Cerebral ischemia and hypoxia should be avoided. Hypotension and oxygen desaturation should be treated. The goal is to maintain adequate oxygen delivery to the brain to meet the rate of oxygen consumption by the brain (CMRO2). The choice of fluid should fulfill this utmost goal by augmenting oxygen delivery to the brain. Non-blood fluid, such as crystalloid and colloid, may help to treat hypotension and increase cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP), thus increase cerebral blood flow (CBF); however, it does not increase blood hemoglobin concentration and may actually decrease blood oxygen content due to hemodilution. Hypotonic, low sodium and dextrose-containing fluids should be avoided. 0.9% normal saline (NS) or even 3% NS should be considered if a crystalloid is chosen. The use of albumin in trauma victims is controversial. Most trauma centers choose not to use it. Mannitol is often adopted to decrease ...
Theoretically, if the cardiac output were increased in the presence of a given intrapulmonary shunt, the arterial haemoglobin oxygen saturation (SaO2) should improve as the venous oxygen extraction per ml of blood decreases. To test this hypothesis,
A method and device for the continuous real-time monitoring of relative blood volume change, based on registration of blood hemoglobin concentration, during long periods of time, such as dialysis session. A method and device for cardiac output measurement, based on optical dilution technique, during dialysis, surgeries, intensive care procedure. The effects of blood electrolyte composition change which result in a change of light beam geometry are eliminated by the relative orientation between a light source and a single light or photodetector. An illumination axis and a detection axis are oriented in an offset, non colinear configuration at a sufficient angle to substantially eliminate the scattering properties of the blood. A primary implementation of the device is extracorporeal paths, such as hemodialysis tubing systems, artery-vein extracorporeal artificial shunts, other extracorporeal systems. It also may be applied to vessels, tissues or to body parts being capable of transillumination.
Hemolysis-Associated Endothelial Dysfunction and Pulmonary Hypertension:An Emerging Cause of Death in the Hemolytic Anemias Mark T. Gladwin, M.D., explained that he and his colleagues hypothesize that the state of chronic vaso-constriction seen in many subjects with sickle cell disease is due to elevated levels of free hemoglobin in the blood as a result of hemolysis. The excess free hemoglobin rapidly destroys nitric oxide, the major physiological vaso-regulator.. The amount of hemolysis in sickle cell disease during crises is sufficient to impair nitric oxide signaling. The plasma of patients with sickle cell disease contains high hemoglobin levels and no detectable haptoglobin. The range of hemolysis is 0-20 ?M but this level increases further during crises. The plasma of patients with sickle cell disease consumes more nitric oxide than the plasma of volunteers without sickle cell disease.. Dr. Gladwin identified 645 references on pulmonary hypertension and anemia. These studies show a 10-30% ...
Peak oxygen uptake (V̇O2) is the best single measure of young peoples aerobic fitness. During growth and maturation, peak V̇O2 benefits from increases in muscle mass, stroke volume and, particularly in boys, blood haemoglobin concentration. Young peoples peak V̇O2 increases with age and boys values are higher than those of girls throughout childhood and adolescence, regardless of whether peak V̇O2 is expressed in absolute (l/min) or body mass-related (ml/kg/min) terms.26 27. A high peak V̇O2 is a prerequisite of elite performance in many sports but, in several sports and in everyday life, intermittent exercise and the ability to engage in rapid changes of exercise intensity is at least as important as achieving maximal aerobic performance. Under these conditions, it is the transient kinetics of V̇O2 which best describes the relevant component of aerobic fitness. In youth, peak V̇O2 is not related to the primary component, time constant (τ), during the transition from rest to exercise. ...
1. In all the cases of bilirubinaemia examined, whether the animals suffered from canine piroplasmosis or hepatic disturbances abnormal amounts of bilirubin were excreted in the urines. 2. Haemoglobin was frequently present in the urine of dogs suffering from piroplasmosis. The highest concentration of haemoglobin found was 799 mg. per 100 c.c. urine. No haemoglobin could be detected in the urines of dogs suffering from hepatic disturbances. 3. The plasma bilirubin of the piroplasmosis cases gave an indirect v. d. Bergh reaction whereas that of the hepatic disturbance cases gave the direct reaction with the v. d. Bergh reagent. The highest plasma bilirubin figure obtained was 53 v. d. Bergh units in a case of canine piroplasmosis. 4. In the piroplasmosis cases an increase in bilirubin was accompanied by a decrease in haemoglobin in the blood, whereas in the hepatic disturbance cases there was no decrease of the blood haemoglobin, the bilirubin in the plasma being due to retention and not to ...
Literature References: Hb; ferrohemoglobin. The major component of red blood cells which transports oxygen from the lungs to body tissues and facilitates the return transport of carbon dioxide. Mammalian hemoglobins have mol wts of about 64,500. Composed of four peptide chains called globins, each of which is bound to a heme, q.q.v. Normal human hemoglobin is composed of a pair of two identical chains. Iron is coordinated to four pyrrole nitrogens of protoporphyrin IX, and to an imidazole nitrogen of a histidine residue from the globin side of the porphyrin. The sixth coordination position is available for binding with oxygen and other small molecules. Called oxyhemoglobin, HbO2, in the oxygenated form and carboxyhemoglobin, HbCO, when oxygen is displaced by carbon monoxide. Binds reversibly with oxygen while the heme iron remains in the ferrous state. Autoxidation is prevented by the cover of hydrophobic groups of the globin. When the iron in hemoglobin is oxidized from the ferrous to the ...
Anemia is a common adverse event when patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) receive peginterferon and ribavirin. A decline in the serum hemoglobin by 2 g or more occurs in approximately 75% of these patients and up to 20% have a decline in hemoglobin of more than 4 g.1 In large clinical trials the serum hemoglobin falls below 10 g/dL in approximately 20% of HCV patients during treatment; a decline in the hemoglobin to less than 8.5 g/dL occurs in about 5% of patients receiving peginterferon and ribavirin. Anemia significantly exacerbates the fatigue that many patients experience while ...
The manual of laboratory methodology was developed to provide basic information for testing programs for two genetic characteristics, variant hemoglobins and deficiency of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6Pd). The first section describes the approach to be used for voluntary programs primarily concerned with genetic counseling. In these programs, individual patients will generally request medical advice on the mode of inheritance of abnormal hemoglobins and the consequence of their hemoglobin phenotype on possible children. It must be emphasized that these programs are strictly voluntary and require electrophoresis as the primary laboratory method. The second section deals with testing of all entering military personnel for the purposes of industrial health safety. In this program, all persons entering on active duty are tested by automated techniques for the presence of hemoglobin S and/or deficiency of erythrocyte G6PD. (Modified author abstract)*Hemoglobin

Metabolic, respiratory and haematological parameters were investigated for the Little Pocket mouse during circadian torpor cycles. The rate of O2 consumption decreased from 7.04 to 0.05 ml O2.g-1.hr-1, with a corresponding decrease in respiratory minute volume from 49.4 to 0.9 ml.min-1 during torpor at an ambient temperature of 10 C. No changes in haemoglobin concentration (19.7 g/100 ml), haematocrit (54%), red blood corpuscle count (12.4 10(6)/microliter), mean corpuscular volume (43.6 micrometer3), mean corpuscular haemoglobin content (16.2 pg), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (37.4%) and [2,3-DPG] (9.6 mumol/g Hb) were observed during torpor cycles. The half saturation tension of P. longimembris haemoglobin was 41 mm Hg (37 C, pH = 7.28) and 19.7 mm Hg (10 degrees C, pH = 7.51). The effect of temperature on P50 was deltalog P50/ C = +0.0106 (pH = 7.4). Venous blood parameters were: euthermic mice (37 C); PCO2 = 36.8 mm Hg, PO2 = 49.5 mm Hg, pH = 7.28, [HCO-3] = 17.3 mmol/l; torpid mice
Abstract Anemia remains a major public health issue in many African communities. We compared a novel, commercially available noninvasive hemoglobin (Hb)-measuring device to direct Hb measurements by finger-prick samples in a pediatric cohort in rural Côte d'Ivoire. Noninvasive Hb measurements were attempted in 191 children 2-15 years of age and obtained in 102 (53.5%) children. The median Hb for the 102 children was 12.0 g/dL (interquartile range [IQR] = 11.3-12.7 g/dL) for conventional absorptiometry and 13.3 g/dL (IQR = 12.1-14.2 g/dL) for noninvasive measurements. A Bland-Altman analysis demonstrated a median bias of +1.1 g/dL (IQR = 0.4-2.0 g/dL), with greater overestimation of Hb by noninvasive testing occurring at low Hb values. This overestimation of the noninvasive Hb-measuring device to direct Hb measurements persisted across preschool- and school-aged children, and both sexes. The Pearson correlation coefficient was 0.50 for children 4-9 years of age, and 0.33 for children 10-15 years of
