What is Factor VIII?
This test enables the doctors to diagnose the workings of the protein that helps in blood clotting. A blood clot is a collection of blood that is produced by the body to stop an excess of bleeding. It works by sealing off the leaks from the vessels of the blood. These leaks are caused by cuts, scratches and other kinds of wounds.
Why is Factor VIII done?
This test is taken in order to decipher the cause of excessive bleeding. In case a person is already suffering from haemophilia A, then this test helps to determine the progression of the treatment.
Interpreting Factor VIII results
