Are you taking these medications?

• Coumadin (Warfarin)   • Lovenox (Enoxaparin)  • Pradaxa (Dabigatran)

• Xarelto (Rivaroxaban)  • Eliquis (Apixaban)

Do I need Anticoagulation therapy management?

You may need to take warfarin, or other anticoagulants,

if you have been diagnosed with or treated for one or

more of the following conditions:

1. Atrial fibrillation (AFib)

2. Artificial heart valve

3. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

4. Pulmonary embolism (PE)

5. Prevention of blood clots e.g. genetic clotting disorders

6. Stroke

7. Heart Attack

Sometimes it is only necessary to take anticoagulants for

a few months. In other circumstances, patients will need anticoagulation for life. Your health care professional will
tell you how long you will need this medication.


Ask us about having a Visiting Nurse monitor your Coumadin (Warfarin) levels at home.

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
and appropriate adjustments in warfarin dose be made in a timely fashion.

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.
