Platelets help maintain blood in the vessels.

When injury occurs, they adhere to the blood vessel walls, clump together and plug the hole. Many patients can present with platelet deficiency, for example after chemotherapy, and run the risk of extensive blood loss.

Blood platelet transfusion is therefore crucial.
