    It takes the oxygen from the lungs to the peripheral tissues to retain the feasibility of cells. They also aid in O2 scavenging in anaerobic environments. Hemoglobin is made from two similar proteins that are glued together. The hemoglobin is in solution inside the cell and is surrounded by a membrane that holds them intact. Hemoglobin transports oxygen from the lungs or gills to the rest of the body, such as to the muscles, where it releases the oxygen load. Low hemoglobin count result in anemia. Anemia is further classified based on the size of the red blood cells, which are the cells which contain hemoglobin in vertebrates. They are microcytic (small sized red blood cells), normocytic (normal sized red blood cells), or macrocytic (large sized red blood cells). The hemoglobin level is a typical test used for blood donation.
