hemoglobin-, hemoglobino-, hemoglobini- +

(Greek: "blood " plus Latin: "sphere, ball"; oxygen-carrying protein of the red corpuscles)

hemoglobin, haemoglobin (s) (noun); hemoglobins; haemoglobins (pl)
The red coloring matter of the red corpuscles in the blood: Hemoglobin in the blood combines with oxygen and carries it around the body, for example from the lungs to the tissues, and carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs.
hemoglobinemia (s) (noun) (no pl)
The presence of excessive hemoglobin in the blood plasma: Hemoglobinemia is the existence of free hemoglobin in the blood plasma resulting from the solution of hemoglobin out of the red blood cells or from their disintegration.
hemoglobinolysis, haemoglobinolysis (s) (noun) (no pl)
Destruction or chemical splitting of haemoglobin: Hemoglobinolysis can be described as the lysis of hemoproteins that consist of globin and heme that give red blood cells their typical and special color.
hemoglobinometer (s) (noun), hemoglobinometers (pl)
An instrument for measuring the hemoglobin of the blood; hæmochromometer: A medical device called a hemoglobinometer was used by Dr. Thompson to determine the concentration of haemoglobin in Sally's blood.
hemoglobinometry (s) (noun) (no pl)
The measurement of the hemoglobin in the blood: Dr. Mason checked the hemoglobinometry in Grace's blood after the haemoglobin had been changed to cyanmethemoglobin.
hemoglobinopathy, haemoglobinopathy (s) (noun); hemoglobinopathies; haemoglobinopathies (pl)
A blood disorder which is caused by a genetically determined change in the molecular structure of hemoglobin: Hemoglobinopathy is an ailment due to abnormalities in the hemoglobin molecule, the best known being "sickle cell anemia" in which there is a single amino acid substitution ("valine" for "glutamate") in position six of the beta chain. In other cases one of the globin chains is synthesised at a slower rate, despite being normal in structure.
hemoglobinuria (s) (noun), hemoglobinurias (pl)
The presence of hemoglobin in the urine: Hemoglobinuria is caused by a large amount of intravascular hemolysis in which an excessive amount of red blood cells are destroyed. This process releases free haemoglobins into the plasma. Surplus haemoglobins are filtered out by the kidneys and is excreted into the urin.
oxyhemoglobin (s) (noun), oxyhemoglobins (pl)
A familiar protein is the one in red blood corpuscles that combines with oxygen in the lungs and carries it to the cells of the tissues where it gives it up again: When hemoglobin is combined with oxygen, it becomes oxyhemoglobin.
oxyhemoglobinometer (s) (noun), oxyhemoglobinometers (pl)
An apparatus for the measurement of the amount of oxygen in the blood: During Bob's practicum in the hospital, he learned that an oxyhemoglobinometer was needed to access the level of oxygen in a patient's blood.
verdohemoglobin (s) (noun), verdohemoglobins (pl)
A protein which is formed from the breakdown of hemoglobin (a protein that carries oxygen in the blood): Verdohemoglobin is a precursor to the bile pigment biliverdin (a green pigment found in bile which is formed during haem catabolism).
