How does adrenaline affect blood clotting?

How does adrenaline affect blood clotting?

Several ways: Adrenaline (epinephrine) constricts blood vessels to decrease the blood flow to a cut or wound, so the blood trying to clot there has an easier time doing so. Epinephrine is believed to activate or encourage platelets to do their clumping and clotting actions. Epinephrine is also thought to activate blood clotting chemicals to help form clots with the fibrin and other particles in the blood. ...Read more

How do you prevent abnormal blood clotting?

How do you prevent abnormal blood clotting?

Vitamins: The clotting system is very well self-regulated; there is little you can do to change it. About the only thing that matters is that some clotting factors depend on the presence of vitamin k in the diet; if there isn't enough, the production of clotting factors will go down, and your blood won't clot normally. That's how Coumadin (warfarin) works - it interferes with the function of vitamin k. ...Read more

What are the consequences of having blood clotting on fistula?

What are the consequences of having blood clotting on fistula?

Blockage: When a fistula clots, which they unfortunately do, it can not be used for dialysis since there is no flow. We are pretty good at clearing up the clot ( "declotting" the fistula) so it can be used again. Sometimes the fistulas are still working but lined with clot. As long as the access needles can be inserted and used this should be no problem. Typically clot forms when there is a blockage. ...Read more

If my antiphosplippid anti body test was clear does that mean I don't have any blood clotting disorder ? Or is it still possible to have one ?

If my antiphosplippid anti body test was clear does that mean I don't have any blood clotting disorder ? Or is it still possible to have one ?

Still at risk: It's one of several different tests, and picks up only 1 entity. Chances are you were screened for all the common ones (V Leiden, deficiency in S and/or C, antithrombin 3 deficiency, many of us are skeptical about homocysteine and a few of the others). What it really means is that we aren't going to give you treatment to make your blood less coagulable since this doesn't improve your odds. ...Read more

My dad was diagnosed with two types of facial neralgia and a few different blood clotting disorders. I don't have nething he has but cld I get it later?

Some diseases can have neuralgias (shingles, diabetes, etc), so be aware of any risks for them. Clotting disorders, however, are often inherited, and some may not manifest right away. If his clotting problems are not due to meds, then you should talk witha physician to fully assess your risk. ...Read more
