The two beta chains lie closer to each other when oxygen is bound to haemoglobin. 2 The most frequently occurring haemoglobins are: D eoxygen ated (Reduced) h aem oglo b in (HHb). This is unassociated with oxy­ gen and is bound to H+ (the term ‘deoxygenated’ is recommended over ‘reduced’, as in a chemical sense no reduction has taken place). O xyhaem oglobin (OsHb) is the haemoglobin (monomer) molecule with one oxy­ gen molecule reversibly bound to the ferrous ion. 30 Cardiology and Cardiac Catheterisation C arb am in o h aem o g lo b in (HHbCOs).
