Activated Partial Prothrombin Time Test Overview
Prothrombin is a protein formed in the liver and is one of the coagulation factors. When there is an injury or cut, the body initiates a step by step process for the blood to coagulate or initiate bleeding. Prothrombin is one of the important coagulation factors.
Prothrombin time (PT) is a blood test that measures the time taken by the body to form a blood clot. Based on this the International normalized ratio (INR) is calculated. It is a screening test to detect one or more clotting factor deficiency

Prothrombin time test measures the Prothrombin time in blood
Prothrombin time test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer.
Low PT indicates that the body is at a risk of forming excess blood clots which may mean a clotting disorder. High PT indicates delayed clotting which means that there is risk of bleeding excessively, occurs in cases of bleeding disorders. Vitamin K deficiency, liver disorders and certain medication like warfarin may also affect the PT.
