Correlation of bleeding time and clotting time with ABO blood grouping among first year medical students

Shankar Prasad Gupta, Pritika Dutta, Shomi Anand, Rajeev Kumar Kanchan.

Abstract
Background: Hematological parameters such as bleeding time and clotting time play a significant role in all surgical procedures as a result of which blood tests are performed on a routine basis in all the hospitals over the world. Assessment of the blood group system is also vital before a blood transfusion procedure.

Aim and Objectives: This study aims to find out an association between bleeding time and clotting time with the ABO blood group system and gender.

Materials and Methods: This study was carried out in the Department of Physiology, Lord Buddha Koshi Medical College, Saharsa, Bihar, India, from September 2019 to December 2019. It was conducted among 118 healthy, age-matched 1st-year male and female medical students who were willing to participate in the study.

Results: Females presented higher time of bleeding than age-matched males, whereas no such significance was evident with clotting time. An in-depth study reveals that there was a significant difference in bleeding time between blood groups A and AB. A similar result was found in clotting time between blood groups A and B.

Conclusion: Our study reinforces that both bleeding time and clotting time are comparable among the four blood groups in young adults.

Key words: Bleeding Time, Clotting Time, ABO Blood Group, Von Willebrand Factor
