Prothrombin Time - This is tested to measure the time it takes for blood to clot. This test is usually tested to check for bleeding issues.
APTT - This is tested for an investigation of a bleeding/thrombotic issue. This is sometimes tested prior to surgery to evaluate the risks of excessive bleeding or when the patient has unexplained bleeding or blood clots (thrombosis).
