Question 1#

Which of the following is NOT one of the four major physiologic events of hemostasis?

A. Fibrinolysis
B. Vasodilatation
C. Platelet plug formation
D. Fibrin production

Correct Answer is B


Hemostasis is a complex process and its function is to limit blood loss from an injured vessel. Four major physiologic events participate in the hemostatic process: vascular constriction, platelet plug formation, fibrin formation, and fibrinolysis. Though each tend to be activated in order, the four processes are interrelated so that there is a continuum and multiple reinforcements.
