APTT (Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time) Test Cost

APTT (Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time) Test measures the capacity and rate at which blood can clot after getting exposed to external environment. The results of this test are measured in seconds, counted in a specific manner after a wound starts to bleed.

Thromboplastin is a part of a complicated series of chemical reactions that form the coagulation cascade. These reactions are set off as a result of any external injury which causes bleeding. Several chemicals known as 'clotting factors' are responsible for clot formation when blood gets exposed to air. This is a natural defense mechanism of the body to prevent hemorrhage.

APTT is required when patients are experiencing any difficulty or abnormality in their blood clotting mechanism. Indications for the test are mentioned below:

  • Easy bruising
  • Bleeding tendency
  • Abnormal results of Clotting Time and Bleeding Time tests
  • Thrombocytopenia
  • Abnormal menstrual bleeding
  • Recurrent petechial hemorrhages
  • Recurrent presence of blood in stool or urine
  • Before undergoing any surgery

Apart from the above mentioned factors, other health conditions may also necessitate undergoing APTT test.

How is APTT Test performed?

A sample of blood is withdrawn from a blood vessel in the patient's arm. In most cases, whenever a blood sample is collected for performing any test, it is mixed with an anti clotting medicine. However, for APTT test, such medicines are not used as they would affect the test results. On the contrary, medicines which will enhance clot formation are mixed with the blood sample for APTT test.

The time taken for blood to clot is measured in seconds. In a healthy adult, level of APTT is between 30-40 seconds. Time span may exceed in patients who are on blood thinning medication to treat any persisting health issue.

Patients may also be advised to undergo Prothrombin Time, platelet count, clotting time, bleeding time and other tests which determine the clotting capacity of blood.

APTT (Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time) Test FAQs
Q: Why is APTT test ordered?
A: To detect blood clotting difficulties such as lupus anticoagulant syndrome and antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, unexplained bruising or bleeding causes, liver disorders, blood clots in veins and arteries, and hemophilia and other bleeding diseases caused due to low levels of blood clotting factors. It may also be ordered for females facing miscarriages.
Q: What is the main purpose of APTT test?
A: To gauge the time needed for the blood to clot (coagulation) and as a primary analysis of bleeding problems.
Q: Is PTT (partial thromboplastin time) test done along with APTT test?
A: Yes. It is done to measure blood clotting factors and examine related problems, especially before a surgery where excessive bleeding could be a possibility. International nationalized ratio (INR) is another test done along with these.
Q: Can APTT test be ordered to check the effect of blood-thinners?
A: Yes. It is ordered for patients who are administered with heparin and other blood-thinning medications to avoid blood clots in the arteries or veins.
Q: What is the normal range of APTT and PTT?
A: APTT: 30-40 seconds and PTT: 60-70 seconds.
