INTRODUCTION: The prothrombin time (PT) and the activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) are routine coagulation tests used to assess the coagulation system in a clinical setting.
Prothrombin time (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT) have been shown to be associated with elevated systolic and diastolic blood pressures in hypertensive and normotensive patients [23].
In this study, a significant coagulopathy was defined as a platelet count < 100 x [10.sup.9]/l, an international normalised ratio > 1.5, or activated partial thromboplastin time >50 seconds.
To assess the coagulation profile, I recommend the use of the whole-blood clotting test ("red-top tube test"), described in my editorial, and the measurement of prothrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, platelets, and fibrinogen.
