Warfarin: Information About Warfarin | Warfarin Interactions | Warfarin Side Effects (2018) Coumadin
 
04:21
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.

Warfarin Monitoring
 
02:28
CanadaQBank.com Warfarin Monitoring Instructional Tutorial Video Video Transcript: When a patient is on Warfarin, in order to monitor how thin their blood is, you will need to calculate their INR. INR stands for 'International Normalized Ratio'. The INR is calculated by dividing the patients Prothrombin Time (PT), measured in seconds, to the normal Prothrombin Time (PT). Then raising this ratio to the power of the ISI (International Sensitivity Index). As a formula it looks like this: INR = (PT patient/PT normal)ISI PT patient = patient's measured Prothrombin Time (in seconds) PT normal = laboratory value for normal patients (in seconds) ISI = International Sensitivity Index The patients INR should be between 2.0-3.0 if they are on Warfarin for treatment of Deep Venous Thrombosis, Pulmonary Embolism or Atrial Fibrillation for the duration of treatment, which can range anywhere from 3 months to lifetime. Patients with mechanical heart valves will require that their INR be in the range of 2.5-3.5.

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 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.

Can Using PCC to Stop Warfarin-Related Bleeding Be a Practice-Changer?
 
05:19
In the July 23 edition of Circulation, investigators reported that Octaplex, a four-factor prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC), was faster and safer than fresh frozen plasma; the four-factor PCC was associated with fewer adverse events, faster INR (international normalized ratio) reversal, and less need for red blood cell transfusion. In a video interview with Neurology Today, Neurology Today Editor-in-Chief Steven P. Ringel, MD, and Associate Editor Robert Holloway Jr., MD, discuss the data in the paper and the pros and cons of accepting the authors' conclusions in practice. More needs to be studied in terms of the therapy's cost-effectiveness, the two neurologists agree. But, according to Dr. Holloway, these data provide compelling reasons why neurologists should check to see whether their pharmacies do have PCC in their formularies.

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

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.

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. John made a full recovery and now feels in control of his warfarin programme.

Coagulation Cascade SIMPLEST EXPLANATION !! The Extrinsic and Intrinsic Pathway of HEMOSTASIS

It potentially results in hemostasis, the cessation of blood loss from a damaged vessel, followed by repair. The mechanism of coagulation involves activation, adhesion, and aggregation of platelets along with deposition and maturation of fibrin. Disorders of coagulation are disease states which can result in bleeding (hemorrhage or bruising) or obstructive clotting (thrombosis).[1] LIKE ON FACEBOOK : The coagulation factors are generally serine proteases (enzymes), which act by cleaving downstream proteins. There are some exceptions. For example, FVIII and FV are glycoproteins, and Factor XIII is a transglutaminase.[7] The coagulation factors circulate as inactive zymogens. The coagulation cascade is therefore classically divided into three pathways. The tissue factor and contact activation pathways both activate the "final common pathway" of factor X, thrombin and fibrin 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 to vWF. FVIIIa is the co-factor of FIXa, and together they form the "tenase" complex, which activates FX; and so the cycle continues. ("Tenase" is a contraction of "ten" and the suffix "-ase" used for enzymes.) Contact activation pathway (intrinsic)[edit] The contact activation pathway begins with formation of the primary complex on collagen by high-molecular-weight kininogen (HMWK), prekallikrein, and FXII (Hageman factor). Prekallikrein is converted to kallikrein and FXII becomes FXIIa. FXIIa converts FXI into FXIa. Factor XIa activates FIX, which with its co-factor FVIIIa form the tenase complex, which activates FX to FXa. The minor role that the contact activation pathway has in initiating clot formation can be illustrated by the fact that patients with severe deficiencies of FXII, HMWK, and prekallikrein do not have a bleeding disorder. Instead, contact activation system seems to be more involved in inflammation.[7] Final common pathway[edit] The division of coagulation in two pathways is mainly artificial, it originates from laboratory tests in which clotting times were measured after the clotting was initiated by glass (intrinsic pathway) or by thromboplastin (a mix of tissue factor and phospholipids). In fact thrombin is present from the very beginning, already when platelets are making the plug. Thrombin has a large array of functions, not only the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin, the building block of a hemostatic plug. In addition, it is the most important platelet activator and on top of that it activates Factors VIII and V and their inhibitor protein C (in the presence of thrombomodulin), and it activates Factor XIII, which forms covalent bonds that crosslink the fibrin polymers that form from activated monomers.[7] Following activation by the contact factor or tissue factor pathways, the coagulation cascade is maintained in a prothrombotic state by the continued activation of FVIII and FIX to form the tenase complex, until it is down-regulated by the anticoagulant pathways SUBSCRIBE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOmrniWfKi-uCD6Oh6fqhgw WATCH AGAIN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVYmV5mK6QI -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- CHECK OUT NEWEST VIDEO: "Nucleic acids - DNA and RNA structure " https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0lZRAShqft0 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

It is used to decrease the clotting ability of the blood and to help prevent harmful clots from forming in the blood vessels. It is often used to prevent or treat deep venous thrombosis, a condition in which harmful blood clots form in the blood vessels of the legs. These blood clots can travel to the lungs and cause a condition called pulmonary embolism. Warfarin is also used to prevent or treat blood clots that are caused by certain heart conditions or open-heart surgery. It may be used after a heart attack to prevent blood clots from forming. Although it will not dissolve blood clots that have already formed, warfarin may keep the clots from becoming larger and causing more serious problems. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription. This product is available in the following dosage forms: Tablet NCLEX Nursing Precautions Drug information provided by: Micromedex It is very important that your doctor check your progress at regular visits to see if the medicine is working properly. Blood tests, such as INR, are needed to check for proper dosage and unwanted side effects. Be sure to keep all appointments. Using this medicine while you are pregnant can harm your unborn baby. Use an effective form of birth control to keep from getting pregnant. If you think you have become pregnant while using the medicine, tell your doctor right away. Do not stop taking any of your medicines or start any new prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medicines unless they have been discussed with your doctor. Keep a list of your medicines with you at all times. This includes prescription medicines, nonprescription (over-the-counter [OTC]) medicines, and herbal or vitamin supplements. Do not take other medicines that also contain warfarin. Using too much warfarin may cause serious bleeding problems. Make sure any doctor or dentist who treats you knows that you are using this medicine. You may need to stop using this medicine several days before having surgery or medical tests. Check with your doctor immediately if you start to have diarrhea, fever, or any signs of infection. This medicine may cause skin necrosis or gangrene. Call your doctor right away if you have a pain, color change, or temperature change to any area of your body. Also, call your doctor right away if you have a pain in your toes and they look purple or dark in color. These could be signs of a serious medical problem. This medicine may increase your chance of bleeding. Check with your doctor right away if you notice any unusual bleeding or bruising; black, tarry stools; blood in the urine or stools; or pinpoint red spots on your skin. Avoid picking your nose. If you need to blow your nose, blow it gently. Be careful when using a regular toothbrush, dental floss, or toothpick. Your medical doctor, dentist, or nurse may recommend other ways to clean your teeth and gums. Check with your medical doctor before having any dental work done. Be careful not to cut yourself when you are using sharp objects, such as a safety razor or fingernail or toenail cutters. Avoid contact sports or other situations where bruising or injury could occur. It is recommended that you carry identification that says you are using warfarin. If you have any questions about what kind of identification to carry, check with your doctor.

Are Blood Thinning Supplements Dangerous?
 
03:07
Thank you for watching **Useful Information** * From providing a useful information channel. Are Blood Thinning Supplements Dangerous? It seems that lots of things that are good for you are also natural blood thinners. How do you know how much is too much? I recently cut myself and bled rather too much. Now I’m afraid of eating any food or taking supplements that can thin blood. You’re right, several supplements can increase the risk of bleeding through an anti-coagulant effect, but they rarely cause problems either alone or in combination. You’re unlikely to run into any problems with them unless you’re also taking blood thinning medications such as Coumadin, a drug prescribed to prevent the formation of clots that can block the flow of blood to the heart or brain and cause heart attacks and strokes. Supplements that have been associated with an anti-coagulant effect include St. John’s wort, coenzyme Q10, dong quai, feverfew, garlic and vitamin E. If you are on Coumadin, be sure to tell your physician about any supplements you are taking. If you wish to continue with them, take them regularly so that any necessary adjustments can be made when you take your regular lab tests. Normally, doctors perform these tests monthly on all patients taking Coumadin to make sure that their blood clotting time remains in the right range. In addition to the supplements listed above, omega-3 fatty acids make the blood less likely to form clots, which is one of the reasons why they’re so highly recommended for prevention of heart disease. You get omega-3s from eating oily fish such as salmon, sardines, and herring or taking fish oil supplements. My longstanding recommendation is to consume two to three servings of fish per week. The American Heart Association recommends eating at least two fish meals a week. Some foods, including garlic and onions, have anticoagulant effects, but here, too, neither is likely to cause bleeding problems. I doubt that any supplements or foods were responsible for the excessive bleeding you experienced. If it happens again, you might ask your physician to check your blood clotting time.

NCLEX Question: Therapeutic INR
 
03:42
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 ;) 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. A range higher for a client on warfarin increases the hemorrhage risk. 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.

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. 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.

Blood Thinners and Strokes: How to Determine Your Risks
 
04:33
Hey, this is Dr. Jack Wolfson, The Paleo Cardiologist of The Drs. Wolfson and obviously I am a board certified cardiologist and I have a lot of people from all over the world that come to see me for atrial fibrillation. And... very often when it comes to blood thinners and atrial fibrillation and stroke and atrial fibrillation, patients are very confused. I wanna set the record straight for them and really help them make an educated decision as far as what is right for them. One of the first things I do with my patients when they have atrial fibrillation and they are concerned about stroke risks or they've been prescribed pharmaceutical blood thinners such as Warfarin, otherwise known as COUMADIN, or one of the newer drugs like PRADAXA or XARELTO, I show them this website, and it's called chadsvasc.org and you can see it up here on my screen on the top left. On Chadsvasc you can go there and you can actually get lots of different information and you can figure out what your stroke risk is, and then you and your doctor can decide what's right for you. Let's take a look over here where you plug in your risk factors. So you go through this check list. Congestive heart failure, if you do have congestive heart failure as identified by this criteria, then you would give yourself a point... and so on and so forth. If you've got hypertension, or if you are on pharmaceuticals for hypertension/high blood pressure, you get a point. Age greater than 75 gets ya two points. 65 to 74 gets ya one point. Diabetes gets ya one. Stroke or TIA, by history, gets ya two points. History of vascular disease, like if you've had angioplasty, a stint, or previous bypass surgery, that gets you a point and if you are female, you get a point. So, say for example, let's take Jack Wolfson. I am 46 years old. I have never had a history of congestive heart failure. Never had hypertension. My age, I'm 46. No diabetes. No history of stroke. No history of vascular disease and I am a male. So, my score is a zero. So we go over to into this side and we see Chadsvasc score of zero. My chances of having a stroke are zero percent, If I was in full-time atrial fibrillation. We are not going to make it much lower than zero percent with any form of pharmaceuticals. Well now, let's just take the 67 year old female patient with hypertension. So that person would get a point for hypertension, they'd get a point for age, and they would get a point for being a female, that's a score of three. Now, you go over here to the Chadsvasc score of three and you can see they are a 3.2 percent stroke risk on a yearly basis. Now that's not zero, it's still one out of thirty three people in that category are having a stroke on an annual basis. But what I try and do is, I try and tell people that I don't want your risk of having a stroke to be three percent, and with a blood thinner, the pharmaceuticals, you can lower that risk down to about one to two percent. Which is still some improvement, but it's not actually getting rid of all risk. And, of course, there is the risk of bleeding on those heavy duty blood thinners. So what do we do? We talk about ways to, number one, eat the right foods, which the people in these studies are not doing. To live the right lifestyle, such as getting sunshine and sleep. And also getting chiropractor care. We talk about staying away from environmental toxins. We talk about getting grounded. We talk about all the things that I talk about in my book, The Pale Cardiologist: The Natural Way to Heart Health. But once again it's about giving people the information. Now you may think, “Hey, the Chdsvasc score of three, three percent, I'm not over concerned with that”. Maybe there are some natural blood thinners that you would be interested in. I use a lot of Nattokinase in my office and vitamin C, and Vitamin E and Garlic. There's a lot of things that, if you help keep the body working appropriately... Even Omega Threes have benefit in this category. If you keep the body working appropriately, your stroke risk is undoubtedly going to be lower. These are just some options for you. This is a fantastic website. This is not a natural website. This is not a holistic website. This is a website created by mainstream cardiologists to get this information out there to the public.

INR Self-Monitoring Demo

In this video I go through the entire process, twice, to check the Pro Time levels in my blood. I am required to do this due to my mechanical heart valve, which can cause blood clots. On Feb 3, 2014 I went through open heart surgery to replace an aortic bicuspid valve, which was a congenital heart defect, with a St. Jude's Mechanical Heart Valve.

Heparin - An Injectable Anti-Coagulant | NCLEX RN Review (2018)
 
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.
