Treatments are different for the different bleeding problems. So if you have a bleeding disorder, you’re missing a clotting factor. I give you back that clotting factor, and I put you back to even. If you have a blood clotting, or thrombosis problem, you have too much factor. And I give a blood thinner, and it comes back up to even.
