Anti-coagulant monitoring

Warfarin The purpose of anticoagulants is to slow down the body’s own clotting process, thereby reducing the risk of blood clots forming in certain high risk conditions: Atrial Fibrillation Deep Vein Thrombosis Pulmonary Embolism Artificial heart valves or other heart valves disorders To be effective, warfarin must be administered to maintain a prescribed level of anticoagulation (measured by a blood test called “lNR”). Close monitoring of warfarin is required to maintain and not exceed this level of anticoagulation. Excessive anticoagulation could potentially put the patient at risk for unnecessary bleeding complications.

Blood tests are done regularly depending on the individual response to drug regimen and warfarin dosage is adjusted, as needed.
