Prothrombin time (PT) is a blood test that measures how long it takes for blood to clot. A prothrombin time test can be used to check for bleeding problems. A PT test is also used to check whether medicine to prevent blood clots is working for the patient.
INR is an acronym that stands for International Normalized Ratio (INR). This is a professional term for a blood test to determine how much warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven or Marfarin) is in a patient at the time of the blood test.
A PT/INR test is a test that helps to determine the coagulation (also known as clotting tendency) of the blood. This type of test is most commonly used in monitoring the accuracy of blood thinning products such as wafarin or a popular name brand blood medication such as Coumadin, Jantoven or Marfarin. These two medications are in a class of medications called anticoagulants ("blood thinners").
A person taking the anticoagulation medication listed above must be tested regularly to ensure their INR stays within a specific INR test range. A person is considered out of range when their INR test results are higher or lower than what their doctor establishes as their own specific target range.
