Fall 2009

Cara Calvo, MS, MT(ASCP), SH(ASCP) - UW, 2008.


Learning Objectives – After reading article 1* and the ‘CHAPTER at a glance’ summaries of chapters 40 – 47 of the course text, after careful study and following this lecture the learner will be able to:

  • Define the following key terms: a) hemostasis, b) coagulation, c) fibrinolysis, d) platelet adhesion, e) platelet aggregation, f) thrombus, g) procoagulant, h) anticoagulant, i) thrombocytopenia, j) primary hemostasis, k) secondary hemostasis, l) serine protease, m) tissue thromboplastin, n) fibrinogen, o) fibrin, p) antithrombin, q) prothrombin time (PT), r) activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), s) International Normalized Ratio (INR), t) von Willebrand’s Factor (vWF), u) thrombomodulin (TM), v) cofactor, w) plasminogen, x) plasmin, y) contact proteins, and z) international sensitivity index (ISI).
  • Use the terms listed in objective one to effectively communicate in written and spoken English anytime hemostasis is being discussed.
  • Review the nomenclature of coagulation protein factors.
  • Identify the properties of the vascular system that govern the initiation and the regulation of hemostasis.
  • Differentiate primary from secondary hemostasis.
  • Outline the specific events, describe the mechanisms, and name the key biological and chemical substances whose activity and interactions result in hemostasis .
  • Describe the functions of blood cells, including platelets, in hemostasis.
  • Explain the relationships among platelets, vascular tissues, vWF, and fibrinogen that enable blood to clot.
  • Recognize by name key coagulation factors.
  • Summarize the regulation of hemostasis in terms of physical and biochemical mechanisms.
  • Construct a simple diagram of hemostasis that cogently illustrates how a blood clot is formed and lysed.
  • List at least 3 different ways coagulation is controlled and hemostasis maintained.
  • Name and discuss the diagnostic use of each lab test discussed in this lecture.

what is hemostasis page 571
What is Hemostasis? (page 571)
  • Complex, highly regulated physiological process
    • Events
      • Cellular
      • Biochemical
    • Keep blood in liquid state in vasculature
    • Prevents blood loss following injury through clot formation

hemostatic events
Hemostatic Events

Tissue Injury

  • Vasoconstriction
    • Neural
    • Platelet-reinforced
  • Platelet Activation
    • Adhesion
    • Aggregation
  • Coagulation
    • Blood Clot
      • Thrombin generation

importance of balance in hemostasis







Importance of Balance in Hemostasis












Importance of Balance in Hemostasis

Any disruption in the balance between clot formation and clot dissolution results in thrombosis due to hypercoagulation or hemorrhaging due to hypocoagulation.



Too few/non-functional PLTs

Too many PLTs
