It requires a few millilitres of blood from a vein, and it is important that the blood sample tube is filled to the correct level – otherwise false readings may occur. Why would you need to get a coagulation profile? A coagulation profile may be performed to confirm normal clotting function before a procedure which may cause bleeding, or in conditions associated with bleeding, for example from the respiratory, urinary, or gastrointestinal tract. A coagulation profile may also be requested by your doctor if there is a concern about easy bruising or bleeding. This may happen because of hereditary conditions such as Haemophilia, or acquired conditions such as liver failure, or severe infections.
