The normal clotting process depends on the interplay of various proteins in the blood. Coagulopathy may be caused by reduced levels or absence of blood-clotting proteins, known as clotting factors or coagulation factors. Genetic disorders, such as hemophilia and Von Willebrand's disease, can cause a reduction in clotting factors. Coagulopathy may also occur as a result of dysfunction or reduced levels of platelets (small disk-shaped bodies in the bloodstream that aid in the clotting process).

This clip is going to discuss:
-Factor Deficiencies
-Von Willebrand's Disease
-Lupus Anticoagulant

Its an easy way to remember these diseases, how to diagnose them, and how to treat them
