Why is your haemoglobin Level important?
Haemoglobin is the protein responsible for transporting oxygen around the body. Haemoglobin (hb) is found in the red blood cells where it binds to molecules of oxygen. In a healthy woman, hb levels, expressed as grams per deciliter, should range between 12.0 - 15.5 for women. Low levels (Anaemia) is a common condition associated with tiredness, shortness of breath and is an enemy when it comes to any surgery.
During surgery, your hb levels will inevitably drop. Therefore it is important to maintain a healthy level prior to procedure to avoid complications. For most surgeons, the more procedures you request, the higher the level your haemoglobin should be. Many surgeons will also request you complete a full blood count (also known as complete blood count) 2 weeks before your surgery date. Maintaining a high level will aid in recovery and avoid needing blood transfusions should it become dangerously low.
