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.
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.
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.
If you eat to much.. =) If you eat to much.. =)
blood does clot and so can your arteries it will clot if you will have a major accident...
Hickeys are caused by blood leaking out of capillaries when the skin is sucked. You could say that leaking blood is a collection of little clots. They take a week or two …to fade. Most boys think girls with hickeys are kind of low.
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.
Yes a blood clot can kill you if it lodges in arteries feeding the heart or brain.
A plasma protein called fibrinogen
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...(unless you get a hickey from a vampire, then maybe.)
yes, if they reach your heart or brain or get clogged in your veins, arteries
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.
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
no i don't think that this can kill you because it is what your body produces it, but maybe if it get stuck up inside i would recommend to see a Doctor but i don't think that …this is possible The "clot" is a piece of your uterus lining that is changing and can not hurt you. It's the blood clots in the veins and arteries that kill you.
Yeah, technically it can. Under the right circumstances.
