Objectives

  • Determine various causes of an elevated prothrombin time or activated partial thromboplastin time result.
  • Evaluate situations in which performing a mixing study would be appropriate.
  • List the steps involved in a prothrombin time or activated partial thromboplastin time mixing study procedure.
  • Correctly analyze and interpret mixing study results to distinguish a factor deficiency from a circulating inhibitor(s).
  • Determine which, if any, further coagulation studies would prove helpful after obtaining mixing study results.
