Hi,PT is an indicator of the extrinsic clotting pathway & the PTT is an indicator of the intrinsic pathway.
Elevated bleeding time - von Willibrand's disease,
on aspirin therapy
Elevated PT - think of liver disease, DIC, Vit K def
Elevated PTT - Pts on heparin, DIC, Hemophilia,
Hope this helps you.
