During the hemostatic process, platelets interacting with ans binding to other platelets is referred to as aggregation
In platelet aggregation studies, certain aggregating agents induce a biphasic aggregation curve. To what is the second phase of aggregation directly related? release of endogenous ADP
What is the operating principle of a platelet aggregometer? change in optical density: as platelets aggregate, the optical density of the platelet-rich plasma decreases
What platelet aggregation agent characteristically yields a biphasic pattern when used in optimal concentration? epinephrine
