Inr is the international normalized ratio, a derived number based on pt to normalize a variation done in different labs or with different testing systems. It is used in patients on coumadin (warfarin). ...Read more
Complicated: Prothrombin Time (PT) measures clotting factors: V, VII, X, prothrombin and fibrinogen. The raw number is of no value. A system of comparing it to a standardized control (used internationally) is generated as the INR (international normalized ratio). The PTT (partial thromboplastin time) measures factors V, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII and others - INR is used for coumadin (warfarin). PTT is used for heparin. ...Read more
It Shouldn't Exist: The beauty of an inr is that it is independent of the specific lab and reagent used for the test. A quick test (tf plasma activation) varies within the same patient from lab to lab, so each lab obtains their own "control correction factor" to generate inrs. There is no single conversion value for this reason. You need the control values from your specific lab. ...Read more
