T as TIMING : ” a) determining or regulating the time when an action or event occurs

b) skill in this, as a way of achieving the desired result…when to do something effectively right.”

In Hemophilia, BLOOD CLOTTING has a proper timing …a SLOW one. This SLOWNESS is dangerous in severe bleedings because the person can bleed internally for example for days and lead to death if proper measures are not taken.

Bleeding for a long time in a joint without infusing the factor 8 or 9 can lead to subacute hemarthroses.

SO , THE RIGHT TIMING is to be as QUICK AS POSSIBLE in detecting the bleeding at its start and taking the factor replacement therapy.

The slowness of clotting is symbolized by the dear turtle that do its best but needs the help of factor to boost the slowness and transform it into effective clotting.

T com TEMPO: ” a) a sucessão dos anos, meses, das horas…que envolve, para o homem, a noção de presente, passado e futuro.

b) momento ou ocasião apropriada para….”

Sabemos que a hemofilia é por definição uma lentidão na hora de coagular. Por falta de um dos fatores da coagulação o processo inteiro

fica atrapalhado. Essa LENTIDÃO pode ser perigosa levando à morte se a pessoa não for atendida; por exemplo no caso de hemorragia interna, como um traumatismo craneano.

O sangramento que dura muito tempo sem receber fator da coagulação danifica as articulações e provoca danos articulares que afetam os movimentos do corpo.

POR isso é muito importante que a pessoa com hemofilia faça seu tratamento de infusão de fator o mais rápido possível! se tiver a DDU deve usá-la e depois checar o sangramento no centro de hemofilia.
