When an injury occurs that causes a blood vessel to rupture, the air acts on the blood to create a complex chemical reaction:
Specialized cells called "platelets" that normally flow freely in the blood stream become sticky and form a mass that blocks the cut (or similar injury). Also, clotting factors in the blood become activated to form a fibrous mesh (called fibrin) that further reinforces the sticky plug formed by the platelets. This mesh also traps other blood cells (a bit like a fishing net catching fish as they try to swim past), and a strong, but temporary repair is formed that allows the body to produce a permanent repair to the blood vessel, after which the clot is dissolved by further chemical processes.
