If If you are taking oral anticoagulants such as Coumadin® (warfarin), PT/INR Self-Testing represents a truly convenient testing option. Testing can easily be performed once a week in the comfort of your own home. In addition to the convenience, studies have shown that patients performing home PT/INR testing spend more time in therapeutic range because they are able to monitor their trends.¹ After each test, patients notify their physician of the results and the physician will determine if any treatment adjustments are required. The goal of self-monitoring PT/INR levels is to improve control and reduce the potential for adverse events.
You can learn more about testing your PT/INR at home by contacting Coag-Sense Customer Service at 1-866-903-0890 or email us at email@example.com
