The ACT is employed during cardiac catheterization or cardiac surgery; drug dosing and ACT assessment protocols from the manufacturers should be followed. Warfarin The PT with international normalized ratio (INR) calculation effectively monitors warfarin therapy because it is sensitive to reductions of factors II, VII, and X.

2 Laboratory Assessment of Physiologic and Pathologic Hemostasis Prothrombin Time PT reagents are prepared from recombinant or affinity-purified tissue factor suspended in phospholipids. Reagents from different manufacturers have differing sensitivities to various factors, warfarin, heparin, and the lupus anticoagulant. When mixed with citrated plasma, the PT reagent plus calcium triggers fibrin polymerization by activating factor VII. The test is most sensitive to factor VII deficiencies, moderately sensitive to factor V and X deficiencies, sensitive to severe fibrinogen and prothrombin deficiencies, and insensitive to deficiencies of factors VIII and IX.

Walenga 30 stable response to warfarin therapy. During the first week of warfarin therapy, however, the PT results in seconds should be used to monitor therapy. The INR is only validated for stable phase warfarin monitoring and should not be used when evaluating a patient for coagulopathies. The chromogenic factor X assay (not to be confused with the chromogenic anti-factor Xa heparin assay) can be useful when the PT is compromised by lupus anticoagulant, a factor inhibitor, or a coagulation factor deficiency.
