Section 2.2: Study Guide
Section 2.2 Objectives:
Explain the process of hemostasis
and describe how the intrinsic and
common pathways work together
Describe the mechanisms in place
for regulating platelet activation
and blood clot formation, and the
process of fibrinolysis.
2.2 – HEMOSTASIS
Explain the process of Hemostasis and describe how the intrinsic
and common pathways work together in coagulation.
hemostasis has four major mechanisms: Vascular Spasm, Platelet Plug
Formation, Coagulation and Clot Resolution. Describe the detail of each as
you study the sections below.
Create a concept map illustrating all the parts and
players involved in hemostasis and their relationships with each
other and details you learn from this section. For help in creating a
concept map see this resource:
