PROTHROMBIN TIME (PT)
The INR is used only for patients on stable oral anticoagulant therapy. It makes no significant contribution to the diagnosis or treatment of patients whose PT is prolonged for other reasons.
ACTIVATED PARTIAL THROMBOPLASTIN TIME (APTT)
Adults: 26-36 seconds
The normal full-term newborn APTT may be up to 35% longer than in adults and even longer (up to twice the adult upper limit) in healthy premature infants. Typically, the APTT is in the adult reference range by age 3 months in healthy full-term infants and by age 6 months in healthy premature infants (30-60 weeks gestation)*.
26-36 seconds (>3-6 months)
