Question

Why is blood clotting important?

2 Answer

  • Blood ClotsBlood clotting, or coagulation, is an important process that prevents excessive bleeding when a blood vessel is injured. Platelets (a type of blood cell) and proteins in your plasma (the liquid part of blood) work together to stop the bleeding by forming a clot over the injury.
  • Because you would bleed to death if you didn't have blood clots. Clotting help block so not as much blood leaves the body. It also protects from infection and bacteria.
