51 Primary Hemostasis Evaluated by the bleeding time
Platelet number Amount and Quality of the von WIllebrand’s factor VIII:Ag Fibrinogen concentration Other alterations due to vessel wall disorders

52 Secondary Hemostatis Assessed by ACT (activated clotting time)
APTT (activated partial thromboplastin time) PT (prothrombin time)

CAPT R.M. Clemmons, DVM, PhD, CVA

61 TCM Muscle View Muscle volume & strength is under the domain of the Spleen Spleen transforms food and transports it to the body to provide energy & building blocks. Spleen Qi provides muscle strength Liver blood provides endurance Continued delivery of Spleen Qi to muscles

62 Western View of Muscle Wasting
Generalized Wasting Malnutrition Insufficient intake of materials to support Spleen Qi Cardiac Cachexia Heart failure leads to stagnation of blood Liver is unable to support distribution of blood & Qi Leads to accumulation of Damp in Spleen Results in Spleen Qi Deficiency with failure to provide energy and building materials to the muscles Cancer Cachexia Tumor Necrosis Factor poisons metabolism leading to Spleen Qi Deficiency Diminished effective delivery of energy to muscles Localized Wasting Trauma Local damage of muscle Disuse Atrophy Local stagnation results in Liver failure to support Spleen/Stomach Accumulation of Damp alters Spleen function Local stagnation decreases delivery of nutrients Neurogenic Atrophy Denervation leads to local liver stagnation Results in failure to support spleen Qi Leads to decreased delivery of local channel energy
