Expert Answer:

Haemoglobin is the respiratory pigment present in RBC of blood. It has great affinity for oxygen and binds to it, forming oxyhaemoglobin. In this way, haemoglobin transports oxygen from the lungs to the tissues. Some amount of carbon dioxide is also carried by haemoglobin in the form of carbaminohaemoglobin, from tissues to the lungs.
