The time interval between the start of the blood flow and the time the flow changed from a constant stream into drips (Kirton and Woods, 1977) was recorded as bleeding times.

Finally, the optimization and monitoring of platelet function and bleeding time in AF patients may be one of the most important contributions that CAM can make to conventional management of this common arrhythmia.
Although procedural variability affects the bleeding times, bleeding time has been included traditionally as a screening test for suspected bleeding disorders.
In the French clinical trials of almost 900 women in 1991-92, the average bleeding time was 10 days, sometimes extending as long as 32 days.
20] His assumption is that in the absence of other risk factors, the association of increased bleeding time and the antiplatelet aggregation profile of the extract are suggestive of a pathogenic connection.
The herb gingko biloba affects platelets and increases bleeding time.
What's more, DHA may do this without unwanted side effects such as prolonged bleeding time or slower-than-normal blood clotting.
These tests measure bleeding time and clotting functions when the body is activated to stop the leakage of blood from injured vessels.
One cause of increased bleeding time may be less reactive blood platelets -- the cell-like structures in the blood that initiate clots.
