Hemophilia jordan

  1. 1. Hemophilia By Jordan
  2. 2. Effects of Hemophilia ● ● Hemophilia causes one to bleed exessively. This is beacause the blood doesn't clot normally. The individual that has hemophilia could bleed very easily and for long periods of time.
  3. 3. Causes of Hemophilia ● ● Hemophilia is a genetic disorder, which means there is a change in genes that is inherited or developed. Hemophilia is caused by a defective X chromosome, so it can only be passed down from the mother. She doesn't need to have the disorder to pass it on, she just needs to be a carrier.
  4. 4. Cure or Treatment ● ● ● Though there is no permenant cure there is a treatment for hemophilia. Victims of hemophilia can get vaccines to “replace” the clotting factor that they're missing. A clotting factor helps the blood close up and create a scab. There are twelve clotting factors and people with hemophilia are missing one factor. The injection that they take is called antifibrionolytics.
  5. 5. Diagnosing ● ● Hemophilia can be diagnosed by genetic testing of the fetus. This could help to prepare for a child with hemophilia.
  6. 6. International Hemophilia Day ● There is an International Hemophilia Day sponcered by the WFH (World Federation of Hemophilia), on April 17.
  7. 7. Types of Hemophilia ● ● There are different types of hemophilia, Hemophilia A, and Hemophilia B. Of the two, Hemophilia A is the more common.
  8. 8. Clotting Factors ● ● ● Clotting factors are the things that make a scab to close up a cut. Hemophilia victims are missing clotting factor VIII. Without this factor, the cut does not clot normally.
