drwcould you also help to understand:
1) could anti-heparin-PF4 complex be also called anti-PLT antibody?
2) PLT reduction is due to both PLT thrombosis consumption and elimination in the spleen, then why hypersplenism is not correct?+2019-07-09T11:45:46Z
charcot_bouchardhypersplenism means bigger spleen eating everything. thats not the case here. here spleen is normal. autoimmune cause+2019-07-10T05:28:15Z
benitezmenaYes I dont understand why the called them Anti-platyelet antibodies and not specifically Anti-heparin bound to PF4 on platelets. Its just not the right antibody+22019-12-07T18:02:37Z
benitezmenaAntiplatelet antibodies would be for ITP, but also anti-megakaryocyte antibodies would also be for ITP.+12019-12-07T18:09:52Z

cport12If anyone else was freaking out about the word hemodilution basically it just means that there is a decreased concentration of cells and solids in the blood resulting from some other gain of fluid. With normal pregnancy (not HIT), blood volume increases, which results in a hemodilution.+2020-05-12T22:57:51Z
