A hemoglobin blood test refers to the amount of hemoglobin that is present in your blood. Hemoglobin is an essential protein present in the blood that is responsible for transporting oxygen to the body organs and tissues. Hemoglobin also collects carbon dioxide from organs and tissues and brings it back to the lungs.
Hemoglobin is composed of a proteinaceous part (known as globin) and a non-proteinaceous part (known as heme). Heme is composed of iron and a pigment known as porphyrin. The porphyrin pigment is responsible for imparting red color to the blood. Since hemoglobin plays a crucial role in the transport of oxygen to the blood, its low levels affect the survival of the cells due to lack of oxygen. Abnormal levels of hemoglobin indicate the chances of a blood disorder.
A hemoglobin blood test in Delhi can be advised by a doctor due to several reasons. A hemoglobin test can be a part of your complete blood count that is done during the routine medical examination. This is done to monitor your general health and to screen for disorders like anemia. Anemia is a condition wherein you have fewer red blood cells than the normal range. The Hb blood test in Delhi is also conducted during the standard comprehensive newborn screening procedure. A hemoglobin test is also conducted if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy.
A hemoglobin test can be suggested by a doctor if you have one or more of the symptoms given below:
The hemoglobin test is done on your blood sample. Thus, the doctor will collect your blood sample and conduct an experiment in the laboratory to evaluate the level of hemoglobin. To collect the blood sample, an antiseptic is applied to your arm and an elastic band is tied around the upper arm. This increases the blood flow to the veins making them swell. Thus, it is simpler for the doctor to find a vein and collect samples through a needle.
The hemoglobin test is generally done as part of the most common test conducted in patients, that is, complete blood count (CBC). The blood sample collected by the Phlebotomist is taken to the laboratory and treated with a chemical to facilitate the release of hemoglobin from red blood cells. The released hemoglobin forms a compound with cyanide which is responsible for the absorption of light. The amount of light absorbed by the sample is measured with the help of an automated machine. The amount of light absorbed is directly proportional to the amount of hemoglobin present in the blood.
The interpretation of the hemoglobin test can have various results. A higher level of hemoglobin in your blood can indicate medical conditions like:
A lower level of hemoglobin can indicate medical conditions like:
The normal range of hemoglobin in men is between 13.5 g/dL and 17.5 g/dL and the optimum range of hemoglobin in non-pregnant females is between 12.0 g/dL and 15.5 g/dL and in pregnant females is 11 g/dL and 16 g/dL. The level of hemoglobin in infants is between 11 g/dL and 18 g/dL and in young children, it ranges from 11.5 g/dL to 16.5 g/dL.
