Can a blood clot from a hickey kill you?
A plasma protein called fibrinogen
Answeryes they will, especially if it's in the brain ANSWER:They can, but not all will. A blod clot is harmful in 2 different ways. It can restrict blood flow to an are…a of the body such as the leg. If this blood clot comes loose from the wall of the vein or artery, it can travel to the heart and get stuck or block any of the 4 chambers of the heart. This can cause a heart attack and the result can be death if medical treatment isn't found fast enough. If this happens in the brain, it can cause a stroke and the part of the body that the brain controls can be diminished. If this area was a vital organ or system, like respiration (breathing), you could definitely die from it.
Straining to do something like working out or stayin in the same position while ur sleep. also clotting more than the size of a quarter cn be a misscariage
When an injury tears open a blood vessel, blood platelts stick to the broken vessel. Fibrinogen gathers on the platelets and changes into a tangled network of fine threads, wh…ich in turn catches more platelts and blood cells. The platelets and Fibrinogen cause the blood to clot.
No...(unless you get a hickey from a vampire, then maybe.)
not smoke or take hormonal pills. seek doctors advice. eat aspirine a day. don't get your blood pressure high. if your bloo clot is there you should be taken into the hospit…al and given heparine over time and have the blood clot monitored to make sure it dissolves. also to keep your blood flowing properly you should look for anti clotting thights or socks, if the blood clot is in your legs. best are made by Sigvaris, but expensive, less expensive are those made by Scholl. but everything should be constulted with your doctor so that there is not too much but enough pressure. also walk a lot when allowed. sleep with legs up (you can put a 5cm high blocks of wood under the "legs" of your bed where your feet are, so that your head is lower. don't cross your legs while sitting and try put your feet up whenever you can. I'm talking about blood clots in your leg as they are most common.
Blood clots happen because normal blood flow is necessary to supply oxygen to organs and extremities and to carry carbon dioxide away from these tissues, damage to a blood ves…sel could jeopardize life sustaining functions by allowing blood to leak out
No, not unless its major.
There are the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways in clotting. The intrinsic pathway is initiated when blood comes in contact with damaged endothelium or collagen, and involves c…lotting factors XII, XI, IX, and VIII. The extrinsic pathway is activated when being exposed to tissue factor from tissue injury or the addition of thromboplastin to blood, and involves clotting factor VII. The two pathways meet at the point of clotting factor X activation to lead the final common pathway. From here, factor X is converted to prothrombin, prothrombin to thrombin, thrombin to fibrinogen, fibrinogen to fibrin, and finally fibrin to fibrin clot. Platelets, activated by thrombin, adhere to the damaged endothelium wall or collagen to form a plug. At the same time, they activate clotting factors VII and X. More platelets are stimulated by fibrin clots, resulting in reinforcing the formed clots.
blood does clot and so can your arteries it will clot if you will have a major accident...
bld hs certain factors called d clottng factors which r 13 in no. dese along wid bld cells act in site f injury n form a fibrin clot wich stops bleeding.
Yes a blood clot can kill you if it lodges in arteries feeding the heart or brain.
The blood coagulation which you are referring to has several stages and types. The main cells involved directly are thrombocytes, while endothelial cells etc may also play a …role. There are also soluble factors of the blood involved. (see coagulation cascase) See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coagulation
Blood clotting is what the platelets in your body do to prevent you from bleeding out. They are what forms scabs when you get cut.
If you eat to much.. =) If you eat to much.. =)
In Blood Types
If the wall of a blood vessel wall is breached it can be ctritical to repair it before to much blood is lost from the system and all the cells around start to die off. Freely …dissolved within the blood plasma is the protein Fibrinogen. This is a structure called a Zymogen (innactive precurser proteins that are cleaved to form activie proteins of enzymes). Fibrinogen is cleaved to form the clotting protein Firbrin. Fibrin is very good at making atractions with itself to form a Mech that covering the breach. This is enough to keep the blood cell in the vessel but the plasma can still easily be lost through the gaps in the mesh. This is where the "cells" come in. These "cells" are in fact not truly cells at all but cell fragments called Platelets. They are small enough to get part way through the mesh but then befome trapped blocking it up. The mesh continues to form more leayer and traps more and more platelets. This collective barrier that is formed is what blocks the blood from escaping the vessel. It is the red blood cells that block an leaking vessel. For example when you scrap your knee, it bleeds aye? The things called Fibrin, kinda like sticky stuff, snatch moving blood cells and clog the leak so the bleeding stops. The more you exercise the more quickly it can block the leak! platelets
