Obtaining and injecting platelet-rich plasma
Platelet-rich plasma is a liquid made up of a higher concentration of platelets than what would typically exist in your blood. and obtaining such a substance, the process begins with:
- a needle puncturing at the area where the infusion happens and blood is drawn through an 18g or larger needle
- The drawn blood syringe is then placed into a centrifuge tube; the centrifuge is spun at high speeds so that the plasma arises to the top.
- The collected plasma is then introduced into the site through an intravenous drip consisting of saline solution.
