Understanding Coagulation Testing

Coagulation is also known as clotting. Blood clots are clumps of blood that form naturally in the body in response to injury and involve various clotting factors, proteins in the blood that work together to help form these blood clots.

The Importance Of Coagulation Testing

Clinicians frequently order coagulation tests such as the prothrombin time (PT), activated thromboplastin time (PTT), and D-dimer. PT/PTT are helpful to check conditions like lack of Vitamin K, LIver problems, bleeding disorder, leukemia, bone marrow problems. Healthcare providers use D-dimer to help determine if someone has a blood clotting condition which includes deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), and Stroke.
