Lecture and Hands-on Workshop
To a great extent PRP and phlebotomy are two sides of the same coin. Clinicians cannot perform PRP without safely extracting a patients’ blood in the first place.
But what is phlebotomy and PRP? Phlebotomy, alternatively known as venipuncture, is the art and science of extracting a patient’s blood with a syringe. But it is also learning about the patient’s circulatory system and possessing a basic understanding of arteries and veins and which veins to select for proper phlebotomy.
Platelet-Rich Plasma represents the cutting-edge of dental science. It is the process by which a patient’s own blood is extracted and separated into its constituent parts. Platelets are the blood cells that help stop bleeding and promote tissue growth. Re-injecting a high concentration of a patient’s own platelets (generally 5-7 times above baseline levels) into a wound site aids in the healing process. Best of all, because the platelet-rich plasma is coming from the patient’s own body, there is no risk of rejection. In other words, this is as natural as natural gets.
