Acute joint bleeding and expanding, large hematomas require adequate factor replacement for a prolonged period until the bleed begins to resolve, as evidenced by clinical and/or objective methods. Relief of the intense pain with joint bleeds frequently requires the use of narcotic analgesics; relief of pain also accompanies cessation of bleeding after adequate factor replacement.
