What Is Coumadin®?

Coumadin, also known as warfarin, is a medication that helps prevent blood clots. Blood clots can be dangerous and may cause serious health problems, like a stroke or heart attack. Coumadin works by thinning the blood, making it less likely to clot.

Why Do Some Patients Need Coumadin?

Some people have a higher chance of forming blood clots, which can be harmful. Conditions like atrial fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat), deep vein thrombosis (clots in the legs), or heart valve replacements can increase the risk. Coumadin helps keep these patients safe by reducing the chances of clot formation.

Why Visit Our Coumadin Clinic?

Our Coumadin Clinic is here to support you in managing your Coumadin therapy. We understand that taking the right dose is crucial. Patients typically begin treatment with Coumadin after a provider has diagnosed a blood clotting issue or after surgery to reduce complication risks through the healing and recovery process.

At our clinic, our team of healthcare professionals, including doctors and nurses, will work closely with you. We will monitor your Coumadin levels through regular blood tests to ensure they are in a safe range.

Blood Clot Testing: What to Expect

Blood clot testing helps us measure how quickly your blood clots. During the test, a small sample of your blood will be taken, usually by sticking your finger with a small sterile needle. Based on the results, our healthcare team will adjust your Coumadin dosage if needed, ensuring you stay safe and healthy.
