The symptoms that David Busst would have had around his leg is redness and his leg being very painful to touch.


The clotting mechanism

Describe, explain and analyse:
The blood clotting mechanism starts to work when we bleed. The blood clots start the healing process. Platelets are released by a chemical response when trauma such as a cut or a graze causes blood loss. The platelets clot quickly to as they stick to the blood vessels as the blood is sticky because of the platelets. The clotting mechanism is important as it is one of the parts of the healing phase.
David Busst response
