There are conditions that can affect the blood clotting process in the body. These conditions can either prevent clot formation, or can causes clots to remain in the blood circulation for too long which can cause serious health complications. Anticoagulant medications are often prescribed to patients after they have suffered a heart attack or a stroke. In addition, Individuals with irregular heart beats may also take anticoagulants to prevent initial or recurrent stroke.
Tests such as Prothrombin Time (PT), International Normalised Ratio (INR) and Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time (APTT) can evaluate clotting tendency and measures the time it takes for clots to form. These tests can also identify which clotting factors are low or absent. Low Fibrinogen levels can be seen in cases of excessive clotting such as DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation).
