Prothrombin Time (PT) Overview

Prothrombin Time (PT) is a test that measures the time it takes for your blood to clot. This test is also known as the International Normalized Ratio (INR) test. The PT test is often used to monitor patients who are on blood thinners, such as warfarin, to make sure that their blood is thin enough to prevent blood clots, but not so thin that it causes bleeding problems.

Blood clotting is a complex process that involves several different proteins, or clotting factors, in your blood. When you cut yourself or have an injury, your body releases these clotting factors to form a blood clot to stop the bleeding. Warfarin is a blood thinner that works by blocking the production of certain clotting factors in your body, which helps to prevent blood clots from forming.

The PT test measures the time it takes for a sample of your blood to clot and compares it to a normal control sample. The results of the test are expressed as an INR value. The INR value is a standardized measure of your PT that allows healthcare providers to compare results from different laboratories and patients. A normal INR value is usually between 0.8 and 1.2. If your INR value is too high, it means that your blood is too thin and you may be at risk for bleeding. If your INR value is too low, it means that your blood is not thin enough and you may be at risk for blood clots.

The PT test is typically performed by drawing a small sample of blood from a vein in your arm and sending it to a laboratory for analysis. You will receive the test results within a few hours.
