NovaCare Health ServicesClotting Factor Therapy
What Is a Clotting Factor?
Clotting factors or coagulation factors are proteins in our blood that control bleeding. When we cut ourselves and start bleeding, clotting factors are activated. They form a blood clot which prevents our body from losing a lot of blood. Low levels of clotting factors cause bleeding in the joints. Eventually, these blood clots become scabs.
Having a defected factor can result in uncontrolled bleeding in the event of an injury.
Bleeding Disorders & Clotting Factor Therapy
NovaCare Health Services provides therapy for patients with the following bleeding disorders:
- Hemophilia A and Hemophilia B – Hemophilia is a rare condition that can cause serious complications.
- Von Willebrand’s disease is one type of inherited bleeding disorder. Blood can’t clot due to a low level of the Willebrand factor.
- Factor II, V, VII, X, or XII deficiencies cause blood clotting problems.
Our goal is to enhance the lives of patients with these types of clotting disorders. We work together with physicians and specialty pharmacies to ensure patients receive the therapy they need. Our patient’s well-being is always our primary focus.
To treat defective clotting factors intravenously, registered nurses at NovaCare Health Services are trained to provide infusion therapy. Our nurses are experts with different devices like catheters, ports, and PICC lines.
The therapy treats clotting factors with dried powder mixed with water. However, there are also plasma-derived clotting factor products.
