Similarly one may ask, what is the normal bleeding time and clotting time?
The normal bleeding time is between 2-7 minutes. The normal clotting time in a person is between 8-15 minutes. By understanding the time taken for blood to clot, it can be determined if the person has haemophilia or von Willibrand's disease.
Also Know, what is normal prothrombin time? The reference range for prothrombin time is 11.0-12.5 seconds; 85%-100% (although the normal range depends on reagents used for PT)
In this way, what is clotting time test?
Test Overview. Prothrombin time (PT) is a blood test that measures how long it takes blood to clot. Other blood clotting tests, such as partial thromboplastin time (PTT) and activated clotting time (aPTT), might be used if you take another type of blood-thinning medicine called heparin.
What if clotting time is less?
A number higher than that range means it takes blood longer than usual to clot. A number lower than that range means blood clots more quickly than normal.
