What will happen if platelets were absent in the body?

AcademicBiologyNCERTClass 10

The function of the platelets in the blood is the clotting of blood. They contain certain chemicals like heparin which help in the coagulation of blood at the site of a cut or wound.

If we don\'t have platelets, the body cannot form clots. Low platelet count leads to thrombocytopenia. It can also cause severe bleeding that can even lead to death.
