The Interaction of Coagulation and Inflammation
Coagulation function has often been viewed by clinicians as a protein mediated process cascading from one reaction to the next with an eventual outcome of solid clot. This view has been fostered by medical school teaching that has focused upon the coagulation cascades. The effects of platelet numbers and platelet function may be less well understood and monitored. The complexity of coagulation and its many nuances can be daunting.
