Coagulation is a complex process by which blood forms clots. It is an important part of hemostasis, wherein a damaged blood vessel wall is covered by a platelet and fibrin-containing clot to stop bleeding and begin repair of the damaged vessel.
Coagulation is measured when a patient’s blood is not clotting properly; when blood is clotting too easily; if clots remain in the body too long; to monitor patients on anticoagulation therapy and aspirin therapy; to evaluate a patient’s risk of excessive bleeding before surgery.
