Frequently asked questions

To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
Sickle cell disease affects hemoglobin. In sickle cell disease, distorted red blood cells are present which are of sickle or crescent shape. The affected person will have a low red blood cell count, recurrent infections, and periodic episodes of pain.
Hemoglobin C disease is a condition that affects hemoglobin. The symptoms of Hemoglobin C disease include weakness, fatigue, anemia, and an enlarged spleen.
