PT (Prothrombin time) or INR (International Normalized Ratio) test is a blood test that measures how long it takes for your blood to clot. This test can be used to check if you have bleeding problems and is used to determine whether a certain medicine for blood clot prevention is working.
You can expect our health personnel to administer you with the following:
- Monitor the effectiveness of a blood-thinning medication that you’re taking
- Diagnose liver problems
- Assess your blood’s ability to clot before you have surgery
- Additional testing to assess the health of your liver, if your doctor suspects you have liver problems
- Additional clotting-function tests, if your doctor suspects you have a bleeding disorder
