Why should you care? Warfarin use must be closely monitored, as the degree of anticoagulation often changes depending on the patient’s diet, concurrent medications,
and ongoing illnesses. This variability can lead to clot formation or bleeding. Blood samples need to be routinely monitored to ensure blood levels remain in therapeutic range. What is Anticoagulation? Warfarin, also known as Coumadin, is a blood thinner that is used to treat blood clots and lower the chance of blood clots forming or moving. Blood clots can cause stroke, heart attack, or pulmonary emboli (PE). Warfarin is prescribed to those with atrial fibrillation, have had a heart-valve replacement, and to treat patients with venous thromboembolism including DVT and/or PE. An Anticoagulation Management Service (AMS) helps provide better patient outcomes and provides counseling and education for those patients on blood thinner medications such as Warfarin (Coumadin). In addition, anticoagulation clinics monitor other anticoagulants known as the Newer Oral Anticoagulants (NOAC’s) for potential drug interactions and other important clinical labs Do I need Anticoagulation therapy management?
