In our medical studies, Coagulation Cascade is easy to understand but hard to remember for the exam, and I will tell you why. The main things which don’t stay in our brains are the Coagulation factors names and the chains in which they act. But wait, as you go through the article your all doubts will be cleared and you will be able to memorize it very quickly. So, we will start with the basic introduction of the topic:
What is meant by the Coagulation process (cascade)?
Blood coagulation is a process that changes circulating substances within the blood into an insoluble gel. The gel plugs leaks in blood vessels and stops the loss of blood.
Coagulation can be initiated by either of two distinct pathways.

Factor I – Fibrinogen
Factor II – Prothrombin
Factor III – Tissue thromboplastin (tissue factor)
Factor IV – Ionized calcium ( Ca++ )
Factor V – Labile factor or proaccelerin
Factor VI – Unassigned
Factor VII – Stable factor or proconvertin
Factor VIII – Antihemophilic factor
Factor IX – Plasma thromboplastin component, Christmas factor
Factor X – Stuart-Prower factor
Factor XI – Plasma thromboplastin antecedent
Factor XII – Hageman factor
Factor XIII – Fibrin-stabilizing factor
Here we are adding three coagulation Factor mnemonics, select one which you can easily remember:
