The Relation of Blood Platelets to Hemorrhagic Disease: Description of a Method for Determining the Bleeding Time and Coagulation Time and Report of Three Cases of Hemorrhagic Disease Relieved by Transfusion

The purpose of this article is to report 3 cases and experiments that furnish additional evidence showing that blood platelets play a part in stopping hemorrhagic disease. In addition, a method for studying hemorrhage called the bleeding time, and a simple method for determining the coagulation time are described.
