How much is the minimum required blood platelet in a human body?

Keats Health Supervisor
it varies. Anything below 150K is considered low. However, people can live without spontaneous bleeding with platelet counts as low as around 10K. There are minimum counts that are needed for certain procedures and this depends on how invasive the procedure is. For instance, something like a joint injection is ok to do at lower levels of platelets than say, open abdominal surgery.

What does platelets do to your body?

platelets help clot your blood if you get a cut. so when you get a scab platelets were what caused your cut to stop bleeding, forming a scab! :D
