A CAREFUL COLLECTION AND review of clinical and laboratory data are imperative when evaluating a neonate with unexplained bleeding, petechiae, or a family history of bleeding.1 A prothrombin time (PT), activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT ), and a blood platelet count should constitute the initial diagnostic workup for an infant with abnormal bleeding.2,3 This column reviews the coagulation pathways, PT, aPTT , platelet function, normal lab values, and the application of the lab values to the infant in the NICU.
