The investigation of any bleeding especially in the context of anti-coagulation medication includes:

  • APTT (Activated Partial Thromboplastin Time)
  • Prothrombin Time (PT), often as the International Normalised Ratio (INR)
  • FBC
  • U&Es
  • LFTs
  • Group & save, or if bleeding significantly cross match
  • If Rivaroxaban, Apixaban, Enoxaban, Dabigatran, LMWH or Fondaparinux is taken discuss with a haematologist for specific tests and coagulation assays
