II. Preview all questions below

1. Hemostasis:

  1. Plays a small part in stopping the flow of blood.
  2. Plays a large part in stopping the flow of blood.
  3. Is a vascular system.
  4. Represents 15-20% of platelet protein.

  1. Fibrinolysis.
  2. Hemostasis.
  3. Disruption of the intrinsic system.
  4. Vascular dilatation.

3. What major role does blood platelets perform?

  1. In the hemostatic process, blood platelets swell, congeal, and adhere to blood vessel wall to plug the site of the injury.
  2. They contract.
  3. They stimulate collagen.
  4. Platelets extend pseudopodia.

4. Which occurs last in the clotting process?

  1. Formation of thrombin.
  2. Formation of thromboplastin.
  3. Aggregation of platelets.
  4. Formation of fibrin network.

5. Coagulation factors I through IV are, respectively:

  1. Calcium, fibrinogen, prothrombin, and Christmas.
  2. Fibrinogen, prothrombin, thromboplastin, and calcium.
  3. Prothrombin, calcium, fibrinogen, and thromboplastin.
