    This article focuses on the effect of experimental haemorrhage on the levels of haemoglobin. A number of workers have shown that the levels of plasma iron and total iron-binding capacity (T.I.B.C.) are altered following experimental haemorrhage. Thus decreased plasma iron and increased T.I.B.C....
