A lot of people find it hard to differentiate hemoglobin from RBC probably because they still do not know enough details about it. RBC stands for Red Blood Cells. The RBC will make sure that carbon dioxide that can be found all over the body will be taken to the lungs so that it can be properly exhaled.

Hemoglobin is located inside the RBC. It is the one that is responsible for making sure that the different gases are being transported all over the body. These two would need to work together to ensure that the body will function normally. RBC comes with a lot of components and only one of these components is hemoglobin.

RBC’s or red blood cells contain hemoglobin, which carries oxygen throughout your body to all of your tissues and organs. A red blood cell is pale, and it gets its color from hemoglobin. It is shaped like a doughnut, but it has a thinner area in the center, as opposed to a hole.

Your RBC’s are all the same color and shape. RBC count is used for diagnosing different types of anemia. Hemoglobin is the iron-containing oxygen transport metalloprotein in the red blood cells of all vertebrates, as well as the tissues.
