Write a short note on Coagulation?
Coagulation is the process by which blood forms clots. Coagulation may also refer to: Coagulation (water treatment), in colloid chemistry, a process in which dispersed colloidal particles agglomerate. Coagulation (milk), the coagulation of milk into curd by rennet or acid.
Coagulation (also known as clotting) is the process by which blood changes from a liquid to a gel, forming a blood clot. It potentially results in hemostasis, the cessation of blood loss from a damaged vessel, followed by repair. The mechanism of coagulation involves activation, adhesion, and aggregation of platelets along with deposition and maturation of fibrin. Disorders of coagulation are disease states which can result in bleeding or obstructive clotting
