What are the 3 phases of hemostasis?
- 1. Vascular
- 2. Platelet
- 3. Coagulation
What occurs during the vascular phase of hemostasis?
- 1- endothelial cells at site of injury retract and expose blood to basement membrane
- 2- endothelial cells release local hormones and chemical factors
What are the local hormones released during the vascualr stage of hemostasis?
Endothelins- the stimulate the smooth muscle to contract, whichc makes the blood vessel constrict, which cause blood flow to slow down

- 5- Intrinsic pathway forms a lot of thrombin, but slower
What occurs during Clot retraction/syneresis?
- -Platelets adhered to fibers contain actin and mysoin whichc begin to contract and pull the fibrous strands back together
