Fetal lamb coagulation system during normal birth.

Author information

Department of Pediatrics and Pathology, McMaster University Medical Centre, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.


The contribution of the birth process to the unique coagulation system in the young was investigated using the fetal lamb model. Specific components of the coagulation system were measured prior to and immediately following delivery of the lamb. The results show that the birth process itself does not contribute to the physiologically low levels of coagulation factors present in the newborn.
