Hemostasis: Basic Principles with Carlo Raj

Hemostasis: Basic Principles with Carlo Raj

by Carlo Raj, MD

Hemostasis, the process by which the body stops bleeding from a vessel, is a complex interplay of intertwined steps. The first of these steps is trauma to the blood vessel lining, while the culmination is the formation of a “plug” that closes up the damaged site, controlling the bleeding.

Understanding the principles of hemostasis is critical to both the inpatient and the outpatient physician, as well as to both the surgical and the nonsurgical physician specialists. Disorders of bleeding are extremely common, and identifying the particular etiology of a patient’s bleeding disorder is paramount to its correction.

Understanding the principles of hemostasis have allowed us to develop lifesaving medications that either augment or inhibit various points of the thrombotic cascade. Thorough understanding of the mechanisms of these agents has even allowed for the development and use of reversal agents targeting these specific medications. Ultimately, a basic understanding of hemostasis and associated pathways is essential to excellent patient care.
