Anticoagulation Therapy Monitoring
Oral anticoagulation treatments require close monitoring of blood clotting times by fingerstick. If the Coumadin dose is too high, there is a risk of internal and external bleeding. The instant reading allows the nurse to relate the results to the physician and make medication adjustments during the same skilled visit. Patients who have diagnoses requiring Prothrombin Time Test and IN Ratio monitoring may have the test performed in the home by a nurse.
