International Normalization Ratio value. A standardized measure of blood clotting time/ratio. Prothrombin time blood test results are reported in seconds and can vary depending upon the reagent used; the INR result is independent of the reagents used and is therefore a more uniform test result. Therapeutic INR is usually considered to be 2.0 to 3.5 in most institutions.
