BLEEDING OR CLOTTING THAT IS THE QUESTION?

Patient presents in the laboratory with the following results in the absence of clinical history:

PT= 12.4 (11.5-13.8)
APTT= 45.7 (28.7-37.2)
APTT 1:1 Mix: 36.2 sec
PNP=29.1 sec

Is this a correction?
Factor Assays were performed?

Factor Assays:































Factor 1:10 1:20 1:40
VIII 125% 140% 150%
IX 98% 119% 131%
XI 42% 47% 45%
XII 105% 107% 105%


How would this get reported out?
What is the optimum information to provide to the clinician?
