Decrease of hemoglobin, or oligochromemia, is very common and important.
This is a deficiency of hemoglobin, or red corpuscles, or both.
Hemoglobin and red corpuscles are always greatly diminished.
This latter class often have a sluggish circulation, besides a lack of hemoglobin.
The chlorophyll of the leaves and the hemoglobin of the blood are similar in constitution.
Their red blood corpuscles and hemoglobin are distinctly below normal.
The color is mainly due to hemoglobin and other imperfectly elaborated constituents of the blood.
The blood in the tiny arteries was very red—rich in hemoglobin, for a rare atmosphere.
One constituent of hemoglobin, in fact the constituent which gives it its ability to carry oxygen, is the element iron.
If there is enough of the gas present, every molecule of hemoglobin will take up oxygen to its full capacity.
