What does it measure?
The Antithrombin III (ATIII) Plasma test: Analyzes the function and quantity of antithrombin in the blood. Antithrombin is a protein that is produced in the liver to help control blood clotting. Normally, when a blood vessel is injured, the body activates a series of coagulation factors in a process called the coagulation cascade, to form a blood clot and prevent further blood loss. Antithrombin helps to regulate this process by inhibiting the actions of several activated coagulation factors, chiefly thrombin, and factor Xa, to slow down the process and prevent excessive or inappropriate clotting.This Antithrombin III testing is also used when a person is not responding as expected to heparin anticoagulation and when unusually high doses of heparin are necessary to achieve the desired level of anticoagulation.
