General overview of the clinic:
The staff at the Coumadin clinic are committed to providing quality clinical services to our patients. Coumadin or warfarin is a prescription-only blood thinner. It prevents blood from clotting.
Coumadin prevents the formation of blood clots in the heart, veins, and arteries. Blood that clots too easily can put the patient at risk for heart attacks, strokes, or atrial fibrillation, a cardiac disorder. Individuals at high risk for the development of clots receive Coumadin or other anticoagulant therapies.
The patient using and self-administering anticoagulants must be carefully monitored. Coumadin tablets are taken by mouth. Anticoagulation guidelines are quite strict. Our physicians want patients to take only the necessary amount of warfarin sodium. Overdose is potentially dangerous.
Coumadin and other anticoagulant drugs are used to treat medical conditions like deep-vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.
The anticoagulation clinic monitors patients’ use and dosage of Coumadin. Every individual reacts differently to the drug. It is affected by diet, other medications, activity level, and more. Our pharmacists help patients use Coumadin safely to receive optimum benefits from the drug.
Patients’ use of anticoagulant therapy depends upon the Vitamin K level in the body. Patients taking blood thinners must limit vegetables and other foods high in Vitamin K to reduce interaction risk. Naturally, patients taking anticoagulant drugs should not participate in contact sports or any activity that increases the risk of cutting and bruising.
