A free coagulation cascade study guide is available at http://coagulationcascade.blogspot.com I'm a med student at Midwestern University's Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. I always hated trying to learn the coagulation pathways until I found a way that was simple enough for me to retain.
This video is intended to help you: 1) remember the factors and their place in the coagulation pathway 2) remember those which require vitamin K (for their synthesis) 3) remember those that require calcium (to be activated)
If this video was a little too simple, I continue adding details to this drawing in part 2.
Note: Feel free to correct any mistakes I've made in the comments, or better yet, post a better video yourself. Maybe one day everyone will understand this stuff. Also, I can't guarantee the details of what I'm presenting are accurate, although I've tried. Make sure to double check all medical knowledge against proper sources.
