Which is a surgical procedure used to stop bleeding?


2 Answer

  • Answer: hemostasis

    Explanation: hope this helps

  • A surgical technique called hemostasis is used to control bleeding.

    The goal of the intricate process known as hemostasis is to stop the flow of blood away from a wounded vessel. 

    What five steps of hemostasis are there?

    1. Vascular spasm.
    2. Platelet Plug Formation.
    3. Coagulation of the blood.
    4. Retraction of the Clot.
    5. Lysis (the dissolution of clots).

    What makes hemostasis crucial during surgery?

    To minimize the negative physiological effects of surgery that have an impact on recovery, including the need for transfusions, and to improve the view of the surgical field while lowering the risk of surgical complications, effective control of bleeding is required.

    Surgical hemostatic agents: what are they?

    • To control bleeding from surgical surfaces, topical hemostatic agents (physical agents, biologically active agents) and tissue adhesives are used as an addition to or substitute for standard surgical techniques.
    • They are especially helpful for diffuse non-anatomic bleeding and bleeding linked to sensitive structures.
