Anticoagulants, also called blood thinners, slow blood clotting, preventing complications like blood clots forming on artificial valves, valve obstruction and blood clots traveling to the brain and causing a stroke. Disorders that increase the likelihood of needing anticoagulants include atrial fibrillation, cardiovascular disease, and stroke.
What to ExpectJump Up
When going through anticoagulation management services, you can expect our cardiologists to provide guidance on the management of anticoagulants and you may receive ongoing treatment if deemed necessary.
How We TreatJump Up
Patients who have blood clotting problems are prescribed blood thinners, or anticoagulants. Warfarin is commonly prescribed to treat and prevent blood clots. When taking Warfarin as an Anticoagulant, you must get frequent testing. Our anticoagulation management services monitor the International Normalized Ratio (INR), which is used to determine the clotting tendency of blood. Our team of specialists can monitor your INR levels and keep them in an ideal target range.
There are many anticoagulant medications. Your physician will work with you to determine which one is right for you.
