MEDIATORS OF INFLAMMATION Collectively known as mediators, chemicals are released to control a wide range of cellular and vascular events associated with inflammation. Mediators either perpetuate the inflammatory response (proinflammatory mediators) or inhibit the inflammatory response (anti-inflammatory mediators).

However, one of the chemical mediators, heparin, hinders coagulation by preventing prothrombin from being converted to thrombin. A Fibrin network formed trapping platelets, RBCs, WBCs Figure 1-7. The Process of Coagulation. Activated by the presence of factor X, prothrombin is broken down into thrombin. In turn, the presence of thrombin causes fibrinogen to unwind into individual fibrin elements, fibrin monomer. Fibrin monomer adheres to the site in the damaged vessel, trapping platelets, red blood cells, and white blood cells.

During this process, scavenger cells, monocytes •, macrophages •, and leukocytes débride the area, devouring toxic and dead tissues by trapping them with arm-like appendages and engulfing them (Fig. 1-6). This entrapment occurs by random chance, but pain-free ROM exercises may increase the level of phagocytic activity. The repair of the blood vessels, coagulation (blood clotting), involves a cascade of enzymes and consists of the formation of a platelet • plug and the transformation of Exudate: Fluid that collects in a cavity and has a high concentration of cells, protein, and other solid matter.
