Horse ID PT PTT AT Fib PT Fib Clauss D dimer
L1 10.8 44.2 258 538* 232 618*
L2 11.3* 48.9 222 580* 209 211

Normal clinical reference ranges are as follows: PT: prothrombin time, 9.7 – 11.2 s. PTT: partial thromboplastin time, 39.3 – 56.1 sec. AT: antithrombin activity, >130 % NHP. Fib PT: fibrinogen (PT method), 207–386 mg/dL. Fib Clauss: fibrinogen (Clauss method), 96–271 mg/dL. D dimer: D dimer of fibrin, 111 – 612 ng/ml. Asterisks indicate deviation from normal reference range.
