What is Sansamed?
We at Sansamed know that medicine can be difficult at times, understanding basic medical concepts and processes can be very frustrating which brings us to our main goal which will be to produce videos that hopefully would make medicine simpler and more fun to understand.
What is hemostasis:
Hemostasis is the process of inhibiting blood loss, the process is done by coagulation. Coagulation is conversion of fibrinogen into fibrin. This is a protective mechanism that normally plugs the injured area in order to prevent further damage to our body. Its over activity and under activity can be pathological and harm us. Coagulation system is part of the vascular response in inflammation. In the following videos we will discuss the normal state, injured state, pathologies and a summery of it all.
What is the anticoagulant state that prevents bleeding and how do we prevent its over activity?
In the normal state of hemostasis, in which our circulatory system needs to be in a liquid state, the normal coagulation processes/cascade tries to maintain this by the formation of primary and secondary hemostatic plugs then removing it when injury is healed. This will be by constantly forming anticoagulant proteins that downregulates procoagulant proteins.
