segundos Pendiente

This is from a hospital analysis report, which is a bit difficult to get my head around.

This is the sentence:

"En serie granulocítica desviación izquierda desde cayado. Macroplaquetas (se amplia estudio de anemia). T.protrombina (pt), segundos Pendiente, T.protrombina (aclividad) Pendiente T.Protrombina (pt), ratio Pendiente"

My questions are: does Pendiente mean Pending? And why would it start with a capital letter in the middle of the sentence? What are 'segundos'?

    Yes, I think that "Pendiente" means the result is pending, so no result has been released.

    Prothrombin time is measured in seconds, so once there is a result released it will be in seconds (Like PT 13 seconds)

    It's not a sentence. It's a series of results, all of which are pending, like

    Complete blood count Pending, sodium Pending, glucose Pending.

    I don't know why it's all run together that way, but that's how I would interpret that.

    Tiempo de protrombina

    El TP se mide en segundos. La mayoría de las veces, los resultados se dan como lo que se llama IIN (índice internacional normalizado). Si usted no está tomando anticoagulantes, como warfarina, el rango normal para los resultados de TP es: 11 a 13.5 segundos.
