This study includes the constructing of plasma needle (plasma torch) at atmospheric pressure The torch is produced by applying high voltage 17kv and frequency 17 kHz. A total of seventy 70 Iraqi patients seeking for a medical consultation in Al-Ramadi Teaching Hospital includes in this study. The plasma treatment is applied in vitro experiments regarding clotting time, Prothrombin time. Patients are from both sexes and different age groups between (20-45 year) are included in this study. The results show that the decreasing of distances lead to increase in torch. Therefore, the plasma ions induce a number of clotting processes and thus accelerates blood clotting. It can be concluded that when the doses of exposure increases the clotting time decreases. Reducing the distance plays an important role in the generation of plasma, which leads to reduce blood clotting time, accelerates blood clotting, and stop bleeding. The Prothrombin time decreases after treatment with little, which have a significant role in the acceleration of blood clotting, as the mechanical Prothrombin turning fibrinogen into fibrin, which provides for the conglomerate platelets.
