Blood thinner such as Warfarin is still widely prescribed by GP and cardiologists to treat conditions like Atrial fibrillation, cardiac valvular disease and thromboembolic diseases. Regular monitoring to keep the INR within a narrow therapeutic index is the mainstay of successful management. Should the INR too low, patients’s blood will be too thick and cause complications. To the contrary, should the INR too high, patients will run into life threatening bleeding issues such as a stroke or gastric bleeding.
Here we offer instant INR reading and subsequent Warfarin dosage guidance can be given.
