Hemoglobinemia

Common Name(s)

Hemoglobinemia

Hemoglobinemia is blood condition. Hemoglobin is a chemical found in the blood cells and its function is to carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. Hemoglobinemia occurs when blood cells split open resulting in excess amounts of hemoglobin in blood. There are many potential causes of blood cells rupturing, including mechanical trauma within the blood tubes (vessels), certain infections, and different toxic chemicals. Symptoms and treatment vary depending upon the condition and symptoms of patient.
