Study Notes

Determination of Hemoglobin (Hb) content in blood is a routine procedure in clinical laboratories and field settings. Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to other tissues and organs. The amount of hemoglobin in whole blood is expressed in grams per deciliter (g/dl). The normal Hb level for males is 14 to 18 g/dl, and for females, it is 12 to 16 g/dl. Abnormal levels of hemoglobin may be a sign of anemia or other blood disorders.

Hemoglobin determination is performed using different methods, which can be invasive or non-

Test your knowledge about the methods used to determine the hemoglobin (Hb) content in blood, which is crucial for assessing oxygen-carrying capacity. Learn about the normal Hb levels for males and females, and the significance of abnormal levels.
