I know of oxyhaemogloblin , the mixture of oxygen and haemoglobin , but carbon and haemoglobin combination is what's confusing

  • $\begingroup$ Carbon and hemoglobin??? Hemoglobin is made of carbon and other elements; it doesn't transport it. Do you mean CO or CO2 perhaps? $\endgroup$ – anongoodnurse Feb 18 '16 at 1:06
  • $\begingroup$ Is there a name for it other than Deoxyhemoglobine? $\endgroup$ – AliceD Feb 18 '16 at 6:18

I'm going to agree with the comment left by @anongoodnurse and assume you are looking for the terms that define CO2 + hemoglobin and CO + hemoglobin.

CO2 + hemoglobin = Carbaminohemoglobin

CO + hemoglobin = Carboxyhemoglobin
