Haemostasis or hemostasis is a process which stops the bleeding process, meaning to keep blood within a damaged blood vessel. It is the process of arresting the blood flow from an injured blood vessel or organ of the body which requires the combined activity of vascular, platelet, and plasma factors. It is the first stage of wound healing. This involves coagulation, blood changing from a liquid to a gel.
