Transcript of Hemophilia

Hemophilia Hemophilia is a rare disorder due to your blood clotting system. Your blood changes from a liquid to a solid state. If you have Hemophilia you will bleed for a longer period of time due to an injury. It is a life long disease that with the right medication or treatment you can maintain a healthy life. What is Hemophilia? Symptoms Hemophilia A. The most common type, hemophilia A is caused by lack of enough clotting factor 8. It is largely an inherited disorder in which one of the proteins needed to form blood clots is missing or reduced.

Receiving clotting factors
Medication Treatments Bruises
Weak joints
Destruction of joints
Infections transmitted by therapy(Hepatitis, HIV, and HPV)
Muscle atrophy and contractions do to hematomas
Emotional Stress Long Term Effects CARE When you have Hemophilia, you must be more cautious when playing sports due to an increased chance of internal bleeding.

Children most likely prefer to swim because it exercises all the muscles without putting stress on the joints

Kids with hemophilia can still participate in activities, though they might have to take on a different role. For example, hemophilia might prevent kids from participating in contact sports but they can still be a part of the team as the scorekeeper or assistant manager.

Another excellent option is to send them to an appropriate summer camp where they can meet other kids with hemophilia and work toward being able to give themselves clotting factor replacement therapy for a sense of control over the condition.
