    Oxygen dissociation curve shift to right in (PGI JUNE-01)
    a-hypothermia
    b-hypercarbia
    c-fetal Hb
    d-sickle Hb
    Ans given in SAUMYA SHUKLA's ACROSS is b-hypercarbia and d-sickle Hb.
    i have no doubt regarding option-b(hypercarbia).BUT I AM NOT SURE ABOUT OPTION-d(sickle Hb)..I didn't find anywhere in HARRISON-16th ed or GANONG that sickle cell anemia causes right shift of Oxygen-Hb Dissociation Curve.Please reply with relevant references.
