In brief: Risk of bleeding
Bleeding time is no longer used as it is a poor predictor of bleeding risk, clotting time is too crude a test, prothrombin time tests the status of one branch of the coagulation pathway.
Usually pt and PTT and platelet count are used as screening tests to assess risk of abnormal bleeding.
