7. Performing PT INR Test
 
03:27
Make sure that you have all the supplies needed before you start, including, a 21 gauge lancet, Sample Transfer Tubes, sterile alcohol prep pads, gauze square, and a biohazard, or sharps, waste container. For fingerstick blood testing, increasing the flow of blood in the finger will help you capture a good drop of blood. Before you lance the finger, have the patient warm their hand by washing it in warm water, or by using a hand warmer. Ensure that the patient’s hand is dry before testing. Do not use fingers with tight rings, scars, calluses, or other features that prevent getting good access to the blood. One of the middle or index fingers on either hand is recommended. Gently squeeze or massage the finger to be lanced towards the tip of the finger. Clean the fingertip with an alcohol wipe using one side for the first cleaning. Use the second side for a final wipe. Dry the fingertip with gauze to remove any excess. Place the patient’s hand on a solid surface with the palm of the hand facing up. Remove the cap from the single use 21-gauge lancet. Place the lancet against the skin. Holding the body of the lancet, push down firmly against the finger to lance the surface of the skin. Collect the sample using a Sample Transfer Tube. Hold the transfer tube below the bulb and horizontal or with the bulb pointing slight towards the ground to let gravity assist the filling of the tube. Touch the tip of the tube to the bead of blood until the blood reaches the black line and stops moving. Do not squeeze the bulb of the transfer tube at any point during the collection process. Shift your thumb and index finger to the flat sides of the bulb on the transfer tube covering the air holes. Rest your hand on the meter. Roll your hand towards the test strip and touch the tip of the transfer tube down onto the bottom of the sample application well where the green light is flashing. Apply gentle pressure to the bulb until the blood just exits the tube. Do not produce air bubbles. Hold that pressure on the bulb while you pull your hand away from the meter to avoid back-suctioning the sample. You must apply the blood to the test strip within 15 seconds of lancing the finger. Once the sample transfer tube is filled apply the sample immediately to the test strip. The light should go out and the meter should display “Testing Please Wait”. The testing time is the patient’s actual clotting time as the system produces a true prothrombin time. Never add more blood to the test strip. Never collect a second sample from the same fingerstick. When testing is complete, the meter beeps once and the results (INR and Prothrombin Time appear on the screen. If an error is displayed, either not enough blood sample was applied or the sample had air bubbles in it. Refer to the trouble shooting section of the manual. Remove the strip and retest with a new strip and fresh fingerstick from a different finger. Remove the test strip and properly dispose along with the sample transfer tube and lancet. Turn off the meter. Record and report the result which can also be recalled from the memory. Turn the meter off by pressing the POWER button when you are finished testing. If left unattended, the meter automatically turns off in a few minutes. The last 100 test results are stored in memory with the time and date.

Warfarin: Information About Warfarin | Warfarin Interactions | Warfarin Side Effects (2018) Coumadin

Coumadin: Information About Coumadin For Patients | Coumadin Interactions | Coumadin Side Effects | Warfarin Patient Information | Warfarin Food Drug Interactions Hey guys! This weeks video is a short guide on warfarin also known as (coumadin). I see many patients on warfarin everyday and they are very knowledgable about their medicine, which is fantastic! But here's some information about warfarin, how it works, international normalised ratio (INR) and interactions which you may find useful. WHAT IS WARFARIN: Warfarin is the main oral anticoagulant used in the UK. An anticoagulant is a medicine that prevents blood clotting. Clotting (thickening) is a complex process involving a number of substances called clotting factors. Clotting factors are produced by the liver and help control bleeding. They work with cells that trigger the clotting process (platelets) to ensure blood clots effectively. Warfarin blocks one of the enzymes (proteins) that uses vitamin K to produce clotting factors. This disrupts the clotting process, making it take longer for the blood to clot. WHEN IS WARFARIN PRESCRIBED: Anticoagulant medicines, such as warfarin, are often prescribed for people who've had a condition caused by a blood clot or have an increased risk of developing harmful blood clots. TAKING WARFARIN: It's very important that you take warfarin exactly as directed. Don't increase your prescribed dose unless the doctor in charge of your care advises you to. Warfarin is taken once a day, usually in the evening. It's important to take your dose at the same time each day, before, during or after a meal. The aim of warfarin therapy is to decrease the blood's tendency to clot, but not stop it clotting completely. This means the dose of warfarin you're taking must be carefully monitored and, if necessary, adjusted. You'll have regular blood tests at your GP surgery or local anticoagulant clinic to make sure your dose is correct. The INR is a measure of how long it takes your blood to clot. When you start taking warfarin, you may be given a yellow booklet about anticoagulants, which explains your treatment. INTERACTIONS WITH WARFARIN Medicines Warfarin can interact with many other medicines, herbal medicines and supplements. Always ask your pharmacist, GP or staff at your anticoagulant clinic before you take them as they may interact with your warfarin. Also visit https://bnf.nice.org.uk/interaction/warfarin.html to check medication interactions. Foods and drink Foods containing large amounts of vitamin K include: • Green leafy vegetables, such as broccoli and spinach • Vegetable oils • Cereal grains • Small amounts of vitamin K can also be found in meat and dairy foods. When your first dose of warfarin is prescribed, it doesn't matter how much vitamin K you're eating because the dosage will be based on your current blood clotting levels. However, if you make significant changes to your diet, such as increasing your vitamin K intake or cutting out foods that contain vitamin K, it could interfere with how warfarin works. Consult the healthcare professional responsible for your care before making any significant changes to your diet while taking warfarin. Why you should avoid cranberry juice whilst taking warfarin is in the link lower down. Alcohol Getting drunk or binge drinking is dangerous while taking warfarin. It may increase the effect of the drug, increasing the risk of bleeding. See links below for more information.

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Activated clotting time (ACT), also known as activated coagulation time is a test of coagulation. The ACT test can be used to monitor anticoagulation effects, such as high-dose heparin before, during, and shortly after procedures that require intense anticoagulant administration, such as cardiac bypass, cardiac angioplasty, thrombolysis, extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and continuous dialysis. It measures the seconds needed for whole blood to clot upon exposure to an activator of an intrinsic pathway by the addition of factor XII activators. The clotting time is based on a relative scale and requires a baseline value for a point of comparison due to inconsistencies between the source and formulation of the activator being used. It is usually ordered in situations where the partial thromboplastin time (PTT) test may take an excessive amount of time to process or is not clinically useful. Prolongation of the ACT may indicate a deficiency in coagulation factors, thrombocytopenia or platelet dysfunction. Clotting time measurements can be affected by other drugs that such as Warfarin, aprotinin and GPIIb/IIIa inhibitors and may also be affected by physical perturbations to the body such as hypothermia, hypervolemia or hypovolemia.

How Do I Prevent Blood Clots?
 
11:11
Blood clots (or Venous Thromboembolism [VTE]), comprised of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), claim more than 100,000 lives every year in the United States. Yet as serious a health issue as blood clots are, studies have repeatedly shown that patients at risk for VTE often don’t receive treatments known to help prevent them. Patient refusal of medications to prevent VTE remains a critically important issue. The Johns Hopkins VTE Collaborative is spearheading efforts to build patient-centered interventions aimed to improve patient adherence with venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis. We have created this patient education video with funding from the Patient- Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) for a project titled “Preventing Venous Thromboembolism: Empowering and Enabling Patient-Centered Care via Health Information Technology” (Program Award CE-12-11-4489).

They are designated by Roman Numerals I through XIII. When a blood vessel is damaged, these clotting factors are switched on in a certain order (Blood Clotting Cascade) [link to coagulation page] and work to form a clot. Specifically, these 13 factors normally combine to a clot. If one factor is missing or present at low levels, this causes hemophilia and other blood clotting problems and a proper clot will not form. The two most common factor deficiencies are: factor 8 (or factor VIII) deficiency and factor 9 (or factor IX) deficiency. The most common, affecting 80% of the hemophilia population - those with hemophilia A - is factor VIII. When these blood clotting proteins aren't present is not easily stopped. This factor is so important to the treatment of hemophilia, that instead of saying they have "hemophilia A or B," most people say they are "Factor VIII" or "Factor IX" to identify their condition. Various substances are required for the proper functioning of the coagulation cascade: Calcium and phospholipid (a platelet membrane constituent) are required for the tenase and prothrombinase complexes to function. Calcium mediates the binding of the complexes via the terminal gamma-carboxy residues on FXa and FIXa to the phospholipid surfaces expressed by platelets, as well as procoagulant microparticles or microvesicles shed from them. Calcium is also required at other points in the coagulation cascade. Vitamin K is an essential factor to a hepatic gamma-glutamyl carboxylase that adds a carboxyl group to glutamic acid residues on factors II, VII, IX and X, as well as Protein S, Protein C and Protein Z. In adding the gamma-carboxyl group to glutamate residues on the immature clotting factors Vitamin K is itself oxidized. Another enzyme, Vitamin K epoxide reductase, (VKORC) reduces vitamin K back to its active form. Vitamin K epoxide reductase is pharmacologically important as a target of anticoagulant drugs warfarin and related coumarins such as acenocoumarol, phenprocoumon, and dicumarol. These drugs create a deficiency of reduced vitamin K by blocking VKORC, thereby inhibiting maturation of clotting factors. Vitamin K deficiency from other causes (e.g., in malabsorption) or impaired vitamin K metabolism in disease (e.g., in liver failure) lead to the formation of PIVKAs (proteins formed in vitamin K absence) which are partially or totally non-gamma carboxylated, affecting the coagulation factors' ability to bind to phospholipid. Tissue factor pathway (extrinsic)[edit] The main role of the tissue factor pathway is to generate a "thrombin burst", a process by which thrombin, the most important constituent of the coagulation cascade in terms of its feedback activation roles, is released very rapidly. FVIIa circulates in a higher amount than any other activated coagulation factor. The process includes the following steps:[7] Following damage to the blood vessel, FVII leaves the circulation and comes into contact with tissue factor (TF) expressed on tissue-factor-bearing cells (stromal fibroblasts and leukocytes), forming an activated complex (TF-FVIIa). TF-FVIIa activates FIX and FX. FVII is itself activated by thrombin, FXIa, FXII and FXa. The activation of FX (to form FXa) by TF-FVIIa is almost immediately inhibited by tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI). FXa and its co-factor FVa form the prothrombinase complex, which activates prothrombin to thrombin. Thrombin then activates other components of the coagulation cascade, including FV and FVIII (which activates FXI, which, in turn, activates FIX), and activates and releases FVIII from being bound wATCH AGAIN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1wYycfGFjU SUBSCRIBE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOmrniWfKi-uCD6Oh6fqhgw -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- CHECK OUT NEWEST VIDEO: "Nucleic acids - DNA and RNA structure " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lZRAShqft0 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Warfarin
 
02:10
WARFARIN- anticoagulant IND - to prevent the formation of new blood clots and prevent existing blood clots from getting larger. -Mode of action of warfarin: Interferes with the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent clotting factors. HOW TO USE? -The strength and colour of the tablet 1 mg - Apo-Warfarin (brown), Coumadin (pink) 2 mg - Apo-Warfarin (lavender), Coumadin (purple) 3 mg - Orfarin (blue). 5 mg - Apo-Warfarin (peach), Coumadin (peach), Orfarin (pink). -Remind the patient not to remember the colour, remember the dose prescribed instead. The dosage and administration -Dose & duration based on indication and international normalised ratio (INR) target. -Must be taken at the same time every day. -If missed a dose for more than 8 hours, skip the dose and take the next dose (do not double the dose). -To inform healthcare professionals (dentist, surgeon, doctor, pharmacist) if patient is planning to get pregnant, tooth extraction, or when getting consultation for medication, supplement or herbal remedies. INR -To check how long it takes for your blood to clot. The higher your INR is, the longer it takes for your blood to clot. Target INR -The targeted INR is 2-3 except for stroke prophylaxis in patients with mechanical heart valves such as mitral valves (INR of 2.5-3.5). -Follow the scheduled blood test and the counselling appointment made to achieve targeted INR as suggested by the doctor. -Bring along anticoagulant booklet and all medications during the doctor/pharmacist appointment. Side effects of medication -Educate patient on symptoms of bleeding such as bruises of unknown cause, blood in urine/dark-coloured urine, black stools,gum bleeding or heavy menstrual bleeding. -Report to doctor and pharmacist if any sign or symptom of bleeding occurs. Drug-drug/food interactions -Consult doctor and pharmacist before starting, stopping or changing dose of any medication/supplement, irregardless ofwhether it is a prescription or over-the-counter medication including traditional medicines. -Monitor the intake of food which are rich in vitamin K such as green, leafy vegetables. Have consistent intake of vegetables and food with high content of high vitamin K. -Follow a balanced and consistent diet. -Review patient’s lifestyle such as alcohol consumption, smoking and stress. Advice to only consume small quantity of alcohol, -stop smoking and manage stress as these will affect the therapy. Pregnancy and breastfeeding -Advise women with childbearing age that warfarin can have adverse effects on fetal development (first trimester), therefore,need to inform doctor if planning to get pregnant. -Very little warfarin gets into the breast milk, therefore, it is safe to be taken if the mother is breastfeeding. Thank You.

John's story: managing warfarin safely
 
04:28
After a heart attack, John Smith was prescribed warfarin to stop harmful blood clots forming. But he wasn't confident with the knowledge he had about managing his medication and didn't realise the importance of going for regular blood tests. An important part of John's treatment was the international normalised ratio (INR) test, to check the effect of the warfarin on his blood's clotting time. John's INR test showed a result of 11; his normal ideal result was around 3. John ended up in intensive care with dangerously low oxygen and blood pressure, and a life-threatening pulmonary haemmorhage.

Warfarin or Coumadin Medication Information (dosing, side effects, patient counseling)
 
02:51
Your Medication Warfarin Warfarin comes in 1, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.5, and 10 mg tablets. Warfarin is most commonly used to prevent blood clots and to lower the chance of a heart attack or stroke. No matter what your doctor has you taking it for, warfarin is usually taken by mouth with or without food once a day. If upset stomach occurs take warfarin with food. If you miss a dose, take the missed dose as soon as you think about it. If it is close to time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your normal dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at the same time or extra doses. Some common side effects with warfarin include bleeding, dizziness, tiredness, fever, headache, general discomfort, and pain. Some less common side effects include dark blue or purple toes, gangrene of skin, or other tissue and liver problems. While taking warfarin it is important to report bleeding, accidents, falls, or new or discontinued medications. Also, report significant changes in smoking or dietary habits. As these may require your dose to be adjusted. While taking warfarin, remember it is important to tell your doctor or pharmacist if you: • Have signs of an allergic reaction (rash, itching, swelling, tightness of the chest, etc.) • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. • Have any signs of bleeding problems, like bruising; black, tarry, or bloody stools; bleeding gums; blood in the urine; coughing up blood; cuts that take a long time to stop bleeding; feel dizzy; feeling very tired or weak; nosebleeds; pain or swelling; throwing up blood or throw up that looks like coffee grounds; or very bad headaches. • Start taking new medications, vitamins, or supplements. All forms of warfarin need to be stored at room temperature in a dry place, protected from light. Keep warfarin in a safe place out of reach of children and pets. Before throwing out any unused warfarin, check with your pharmacist about proper disposal.

NCLEX Question: Bridging Coumadin until INR Therapeutic
 
03:57
EmpoweRN.com This is a video nursing exam or NCLEX style question going over the medication coumadin. I have placed this video in the format that helped me pass nursing school with honors and the NCLEX examination on the first attempt in 75 questions. I know it may seem unreasonably long… but it is not. Take your time, follow the instructions and read each word slowly. Lets get started ;) Question Number 1 of 4: Title: NCLEX Question: Bridging Coumadin until INR Therapeutic A client was admitted for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis. The attending physician ordered the following medication: Heparin 5,000 units S.Q. every 8 hours, Warfarin (Coumadin) 5 mg P.O, start today. The nurse’s best action would be: A. Administer neither the heparin nor coumadin B. Administer both heparin and coumadin C. Administer only prescribed coumadin D. Administer only prescribed heparin Correct Answer: B – It takes several days for the Coumadin to reach its maximum anticoagulant effect, and heparin and Coumadin therapy sometimes overlap. For more questions & for the main video visit here: http://wp.me/s4CVjD-coumadin Warfarin aka Coumadin is the most used oral anticoagulant in the world and has been used for more than 50 years for therapy in prevention of thrombus formation and subsequent thromboembolic events. Anticoagulants are blood thinners which prevent formation of blood clots as well as prevent existent blood clots from increasing in size. Blood clots can hinder blood circulation and lead to serious medical conditions, like stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism. Thus warfarin is helpful in treating and preventing vein and artery blockage, stroke and heart attack. Mechanism of Action Warfarin slows down the formation of blood clots within 24 hours, but the complete effect takes place between 72 to 96 hours after taking the medication. Blood clot formation is a complicated process which requires certain compounds known as coagulating factors to be present. These coagulating factors are produced by the liver. In the presence of sufficient vitamin K. Warfarin acts by inhibiting the presence of vitamin K and this inhibits the formation of coagulating factors. Substances that require vitamin K for their formation are: the anticoagulant proteins C and S and factors II, VII, IX, and X. Therefore, medications like warfarin block coagulating factors and disturb the process of clot formation. Thus slowing down blood clot formation. In the case of blood clots that are already formed, warfarin stops the clot from getting bigger. It also prevents breakage of the clot which can be otherwise dangerous if it travels in the bloodstream and blocks blood vessels. Warfarin cannot destroy or dissolve a blood clot that is already there. But the blood clot itself may slowly dissolve with time. Nor can Warfarin reverse ischemic tissue damage either, but, may help avoid secondary thromboembolic complications that can be dangerous and even fatal.

I know it may seem unreasonably long… but it is not. Take your time, follow the instructions and read each word slowly. Lets get started ;) Title: NCLEX Question: Therapeutic INR A client admitted with new onset of atrial fibrillation has been prescribed with warfarin (Coumadin) to help prevent thromboemboli. Which of the following International Normalized Ratio (INR) results indicates that the medication has reach the therapeutic level? A. 1 to 2.5 B. 2 to 4 C. 2.5 to 3.5 D. 2 to 3 Correct Answer: D – In a client with atrial fibrillation, warfarin reaches its therapeutic level when INR results is 2 to 3.

Heparin - An Injectable Anti-Coagulant | NCLEX RN Review (2019)
 
08:00
*Subscribe for more great NCLEX videos: https://www.goo.gl/8mBXbY On our first look at anticoagulants part 1, we looked at coumadin, the most commonly used oral anticoagulant. Now we will look at heparin, a commonly used injectable anticoagulant. Heparin is a pharmaceutical preparation of the naturally occurring anticoagulant produced by white blood cells in various body tissues, obtained from pig intestines or the lungs of cattle. It is an injectable blood thinner used to treat & prevent the formation of clots and the extension of existing clots within the blood. It does not break down clots that have already formed, but it allows the body’s natural clot lysis mechanisms to work normally to break down clots that have formed.

INR Testing at Home Training Video - Life After Stroke
 
07:43
A Patient who has been on Coumadin since the very beginning of 2010 is being trained on his second INR machine. He and his wife were trained on the first machine back in 2010 so that they would not have to make weekly trips to his physician or to an INR clinic to have his blood tested. They were trained and had to undergo several days of training to be able to do this at home. This video is them being trained for a second new machine which required much less blood and is much more streamlined than the first machine they had received 3 years ago. They only had to be shown once how to use this as they have been using the other machine for years and the testing procedure is very similar. Please note that you must be trained to do this before physician and insurance companies will allow you to do this on your own at home. 2013 Copyright Donna Nolan-Wilson - ITS Entertainment
