Bleedind disorder is a set of disorders, or disease which normally affect the process of clotting of our blood. This bleeding can be in many cases like during an accident, trauma condition, surgery, injury or a menstrual cycle. These bleeding disorders are not only associated with bloods leaving out from our body, rather it can also be an internal bleeding beneath our skin or brain. These may be hemophilia A and B or Willebrand’s disease for example. Sometimes this disease is also termed as royal disease.
The main symptom of bleeding disorder would be excessive bleeding and prolonged clotting time during normal injuries also. These can also easily identified by frequent nose bleeding, heavy menstrual bleeding and unexplained bruishing.
According to Finland National yearly surveys, carried out between 1985 and 1989 to determine the prevalence of antibodies for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in Finnish patients with bleeding disorders. From 192 out of the 214 haemophiliacs (90%) tested, 2 patients were positive for anti-HIV. No seropositivities were found after 1985. Fourteen out of 21 patients (67%) with type III von Willebrand's disease, and 7 out of 8 patients (88%) with factor XIII deficiency were tested with negative results. The low prevalence of anti-HIV (0.94%; 2/213 tested), is mainly due to the self-sufficiency for clotting factors, the low prevalence of HIV in the population, and the use of cryoprecipitate during the critical period.
