Understanding Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time in Kolkata


What is Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time in Kolkata?

An Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time test is a screening test that helps evaluate your body's ability to form blood clots. This test is performed to detect bleeding disorders if you have unexplained bleeding or bruising and to monitor ongoing treatment with anticoagulant medicines.

What does Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time measure?

Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time test measures the time taken by the blood to form a clot. In other words, it is a screening test that helps evaluate a person’s ability to form blood clots. The test analyzes the amount and the function of specific proteins in the blood called coagulation or clotting factors, which are an essential part of blood clot formation.

Blood clotting or coagulation occurs through a series of cascade reactions due to the activation of clotting factors. There are a total of thirteen clotting factors within our bodies that aid in clot formation, and for healthy clot formation, all clotting factors need to be in the right balance. Any imbalance of these factors can lead to a blood clotting disorder.
