- n. Alternative spelling of carboxyhemoglobin.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
It can bind to haemoglobin and does so about 240 times more tightly than oxygen, forming a compound called carboxyhaemoglobin.
If a patient has CO poisoning symptoms the doctor will take a blood sample to check for carboxyhaemoglobin levels in the blood.
