    • Hi Patrick
      Thanks for the heads up – the file appears to have become corrupted. I have now replaced it, and it seems to be working again.

  2. hi Amanda!

    your notes have been so helpful! Just a very minor thing I noticed:

    For the qn regarding the differences between extrinsic and intrinsic pathways, you wrote:
    Common Pathway Activated by: Intrinsic (via VIIa in the presence of Ca2+) & Extrinsic pathways (via IXa in the presence of Factor VIII and Ca2+)
    – Factors Involved: X, II, V

    Do you mean: Extrinsic (via VIIa etc) and Intrinsic (via IXa etc)?

    sorry for being podantic! Anyways thanks again for your website. Without it I dont know what I would do!

    • Yep a typo, have those two back to front in that section. See the diagram for clarification. Cheers. Amanda
