IAL Edexcel Biology - Cardiovascular Disease (1): Atherosclerosis and Blood Clotting
Topic 1 Molecules Transport and Health
1.10 Understand the course of events that leads to atherosclerosis (endothelial dysfunction, inflammatory response, plaque formation, raised blood pressure)
1.11 Understand the blood clotting process (thromboplastin release, conversion of
prothrombin to thrombin and fibrinogen to fibrin) and its role in cardiovascular
👇 You would need to know how atherosclerosis develops for IAL Edexcel Biology👇
How atherosclerosis develops
Blood clotting is a vital defence mechanism but when a blood clot develops inside a blood vessel, can block blood flow and cause detrimental results
