Positive Feedback: Blood Clotting

Positive feedback is a self-amplifying process where a stimulus or change leads to even greater change in the same direction. For example, if a blood vessel is damaged, chemicals begin a chain reaction that causes platelets to stick to the vessel wall. The platelets release more chemicals that accelerate the clotting process. This process ends once the vessel wall has been repaired by a clot.
