Accurate and timely PT/INR results
The goal of the Anticoagulation Clinic is to provide anticoagulated patients with timely accurate data that allows for accurate and timely PT/INR (prothrombin ratio/ international normalized ratio) results and decreased bleeding complications. This service is provided to patients taking Coumadin to regulate their medication.
During the appointment a blood sample is obtained by using a Coaguchek System. The results are immediate and this enables the nursing personnel to change the medication dosage as necessary according to the approved algorithm. In addition the patient has a blood pressure and heart rate check and is educated on diet, interactive medications, safety, how to take their medications and side effects.
