Bleeding and Clotting Time Test Overview
After an injury or cut, there is bleeding from that area. The bleeding stops after a while due to platelets forming a plug and blood vessel undergoing constriction. This time taken to stop bleeding is known as bleeding time. Later a firm clot is formed with help of clotting factors and this is called clotting time.
Bleeding time test (BT) assesses platelets are functioning well.
Clotting or formation of clots is a function of the thrombin component of the protein prothrombin. The clotting time (CT) measures the time taken for blood clotting process to start.

Frequently Asked Questions
Bleeding and clotting time test is used to calculate how well or how quickly the body bleeds and forms clots in case of an injury. This indicates the status of the platelets and thrombin factor in the blood. This may be done:
- In those suffering from bleeding disorders, where body bleeds excessively when injured
- In clotting disorders, where there are formation of excessive clots.
- In cases of suspected platelet dysfunctions.
- Prior to surgeries to know the risk of bleeding.
- In liver disorders.
Bleeding and clotting time test measures the bleeding time and the clotting time
It is an in vivo test. The patient is pricked with a special needle or lancet, preferably on the fingertip, after having been swabbed with alcohol. The prick is about 3–4 mm deep. The blood is then blotted with a blotting paper every 30 seconds. The test ceases when bleeding ceases.
Elevated BT may indicate defective functioning of the platelets (thrombocytopenia). It may also occur due to Von Willebrand's disease, and certain medications like aspirin which impact the coagulation factors. Elevated CT may occur due to depletion of fibrinogen factors, or deficiencies of clotting factors. It may also occur due to Vitamin K deficiency which is a clotting factor.
