About Clotting check plus

What is a clotting check?

Blood clotting (coagulation) is an essential process for preventing excessive bleeding after injury. Blood clotting occurs via two pathways, the intrinsic and extrinsic. The Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (aPTT) test measures the speed of blood clotting via the intrinsic pathway and in conjunction with a test for the extrinsic pathway, Prothrombin Time (PT), can give an indication of proper or improper clotting.

The clotting check plus includes a full blood analysis. Platelets are blood cells involved in forming clots by clumping together at the site of a bleed. High or low platelet count can result in excessive clotting or bleeding respectively. Conditions associated with abnormal blood clotting or platelet count include haemophilia, antiphospholipid syndrome, sepsis, thrombocytosis and cancers.  

Why take the test?

This is a comprehensive blood clotting analysis. It includes clotting characteristics, a blood count and checks a number of important blood health indicators. It is typically used to diagnose excessive clotting or bleeding, or to monitor the effect of blood thinning medications such as heparin.
