pg-107foto final do coágulo com Clôves representando  a proteína Von Willebrand que junta as plaquetas (os outros meninos) e a rede de fibrina encima deles! (era uma rede de pescar) COAGULOU!!!COAGULOU! gritaram no final….!

This is how ended a short Dramatization that some kids and I at the hospital did few years ago.

The play was about ” what happens inside your body when you BLEED ?”

So after some minutes the kids were the Platelets, the clotting factors represented by a Net and …the CLOT was formed! this is a “real” CLOT with the fibrin net and red cells! 🙂

This is how it really looks in our blood… rede-de-fibrina-segurando-hemacias.jpg

ONCE YOU play the role of   A PLATELET, or you are a fibrin net YOU NEVER FORGET HOW IT WORKS…dramatizing is useful in teaching complex issues like blood clotting process.
