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.

Source: https://www.medindia.net/ For more information, Please visit: https://www.medindia.net/doctors/drug_information/heparin.htm Heparin is an anticoagulant drug or blood thinner which is used to treat or prevent the formation of blood clots in conditions like deep vein thrombosis, arterial thromboembolism, pulmonary embolism, ecmo circuit, and disseminated intravascular coagulation. Additionally, heparin is also used to prevent clotting during dialysis and surgical procedures, maintain patency in injection devices, prevent coagulation during blood transfusions, and treat superficial thrombophlebitis. Heparin should not be given intramuscularly (into the muscle) because of the risk of forming hematomas. Topical applications can be applied externally twice or thrice a day or as exactly advised.The dentist should be informed about heparin therapy before dental surgery. Get emergency help in case of an allergic reaction to heparin. Heparin overdosage can be treated by focusing on neutralization of heparin effect. Protamine sulfate is the antidote for heparin overdosage. Please help us translate this video in your language to make it more universal and useful to your language community.

Clotting Factors  - Coagulation Cascade

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 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Coagulation Cascade SIMPLEST EXPLANATION !! The Extrinsic and Intrinsic Pathway of HEMOSTASIS
 
05:23
Help us Improve our content Support us on Patreon : https://www.patreon.com/medsimplfied Coagulation Cascade SIMPLEST EXPLANATION Follow on FaceBook : https://goo.gl/syceUO Coagulation (also known as clotting) is the process by which blood changes from a liquid to a gel, forming a clot. 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 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Blood Clots,Recognize,Symptoms, What to Expect-Clip 1
 
11:35
Learn how to recognize Deep vein and Superficial vein thrombosis and what to expect.BLOOD CLOTS -- HOW TO RECOGNIZE 1)Superficial-reddness, mild burning if along the Saphenous vein. Other surface veins may have a visible or palpable lump usually feels like a hard cord or pencil under the skin. Could continue into a DVT You can expect to be put on coumadin and will have only minor impairment if at all. It can be deceptively symptom free until the entire Saphenous vein becomes like a cord most of the way from your thigh down to the ankle. You most likely will not experience any leg swelling but you should see the vein become more prominent and then become hardened. 2)Deep vein-If in calf, dorsa flex the foot. If sharp pain then suspect thrombosis. 3)Deep vein- If between the thigh and knee-Femoral vein Can be difficult to detect at first because it tends to become established before symptoms develop. Symptoms may present as a lower muscle pain or pulled groin muscle. Further these pains may not always be present. They can be intermittent at first misleading you into thinking it's just a pulled muscle.Experience feelings of fluid build up upon standing and weakness in Quads at first . Later a feeling of dizzyness AFTER mild exertion. A craving for sweets for energy. DO NOT attempt to treat with anti-inflammatory NSAIDs like Aleve or Ibuprofen. Tylenol okay to use. Take a couple of aspirin a day until you have a chance to get to a doctor's offc. Do the pinch test to see if you are dehydrated...if skin does not snap back immediately start drinking fluids now. One you first feeling fluid building up and/or dizzyness upon standing you are probably within three days of requiring admission to the ER at the hospital. You will know you have reached a critical stage when your thigh muscles become weak, feel more and more pressure each time you stand and you feel dizzy after walking just a few yards. At this point you must go to the ER but try to have a bowel movement and pee before you go....you probably won't be able to for the next week or so. Just the physical swelling will cause that.DO THESE THINGS RIGHT NOW (TODAY) BEFORE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL FIRST THING: Laxative-If you even think you may have a thrombosis-Start immediately on either All-Bran cereal or Mira-Lax with each meal SECOND THING: Plan ahead-Transport (911=$900)/meals, grocery shopping, business now SECOND THING: Buy a pair of thigh high compression stockings 20-30mm Hg-no Rx nec. WHAT TO EXPECT: At the ER they will put an IV line in you to keep fluids going into your body. Your leg diameter will continue to swell for the next few days. Be sure you ask for a doppler to confirm thrombosis. Your pain levels will increase...you won't be able to walk but a few meters without passing out from orthostatic hypotension. If you are on diuretics for BP CONTINUE THEM. ASK THE HOSPITAL DOC (DAY 1) IF YOU CAN HAVE SOMEONE BRING YOU 20-30 mm thigh high COMPRESSION STOCKINGS FOR IMMEDIATE USE. You will need measurements of your ankle, calf, and thigh at the widest part. You will only use these until about two or three weeks after you get home then order some stockings at 30-40mm for the next 4-6weeks and then go to 40-50mm. As soon as you can (when the 30-40mm began to stretch and lose compression.The hospital may give you some short knee high compression socks which are useless and just slow your progress or they may use a machine with a pressure cuff to stimulate circulation---they usually don't get the cuff adjusted tight enough to do any good....take some control here and do it yourself. Each day, Ask your hospital doc if your vital signs have returned to normal (such as kidney function). If so then don't let the hospital keep putting IV fluid into your body...that just makes your leg feel like it is going to burst plus it makes it almost physically impossible for you to use the toilet in your room no matter where it is. They will argue the IV is for your benefit. Tolerate what you can but take control. You will also feel your upper body begin to retain fluid as well. This will also make going to the toilet a lot more difficult. Until you can get the fluid in your body down (ask doc to use lasix for that) you will be in great pain and pretty immobile and severely constipated and unable to pee. You will be put on Coumadin or Warfarin accompanied with a few shots of Lovenox injections for about ten days. The Coumadin you may be on forever. You will also be given medication for pain.

How Do I Prevent Blood Clots?
 
11:12
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).

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.

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.

Factor V Leiden: This Inherited Clotting Problem can kill you before you know you have it.
 
09:23
ford brewer md mph PrevMedHeartRisk.com Factor V Leiden is the most common genetic clotting disorder among ethnic Europeans. It's named after the Dutch city Leiden, where it was first described. It is a cofactor with factor Xa, resulting in increasing the cascade to end up with increased polymerization of fibrin, forming clots too quickly. Doctors diagnose it by having a high index for suspicion for anyone with a clot. Venous clots or pulmonary embolus among ethnic Europeans can show over 30% probability of having this. If a patient has a clot, docs should check the clotting time. If positive, they should do the genetic test. Treatment involves special consideration for flying, surgery, oral contraceptives and pregnancy. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

Stopping Statins pt1 (Lipitor, Simvastatin...): There are many reasons to stop statins. Is it SAFE?
 
15:47
ford brewer md mph Info@PrevMedHeartRisk.com There are many reasons to stop statins, ranging from side effects to cost to fear to the need to switch to a more effective statin. Two studies are mentioned: one saying that it's safe to stop statins, and another says it's not. Although these studies, like all studies, have problems. But I think they both reflect biologic medical realities. The study showing safety was on stable patients. The study showing danger in stopping statins was on patients post strokes. Plaque instability is systemic; there is no such thing as one vulnerable plaque. The VULNERABLE PLAQUE THEORY is rapidly dying. Therefore the patients in the post-stroke study selected for patients with an arterial tree full on unstable plaque. The study showing safety selected for patients with stable plaques. Plaque instability appears to be a cyclical phenomenon, with cycles taking many months. So I would love to see a 2 year follow-up on the study showing safety in stopping plaques. I bet it would show regression to the mean. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

Easy Coagulation Cascade (2 of 2) - A little more detail...

A free coagulation cascade study guide is available at http://coagulationcascade.blogspot.com! I'm a med student at Midwestern University's Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. I always hated trying to learn the coagulation pathways until I found a way that was simple enough for me to retain. [correction: I wrote that plasmin helps form C3a to activate complement. While fibrin does split C3 into C3a and C3b, I believe that C3b is the subunit that goes on to initiate the membrane attack complex.

6 Natural Blood Thinners
 
05:18
6 Natural Blood Thinners 1. Garlic Aside from giving your grandmother’s spaghetti sauce the “kick” it needs, garlic can also be good for your health. For one, it’s capable of limiting the collection of platelets, one of the primary steps in the formation of a blood clot. In small amounts, it’s unclear if garlic actually has the potential to prevent a devastating heart attack or stroke caused by a blood clot. However, in much larger amounts — such as when taken in supplement form — garlic may play a role in helping limit platelet aggregation. In short, if you’re in a position where blood clots may present a health problem, it’s a good idea to work more garlic into your diet. 2. Fish Oil There’s a good chance that, by now, you’ve heard about the health benefits of fish oil, and specifically that containing omega-3 fatty acids. These acids, which can be found in many types of fish, such as salmon, have been shown to help boost brain functionality and work against serious health problems, like stroke. But omega-3 fatty acids can also help thin the blood by preventing the formation of substances that encourage platelet formation. For people who need to be aware of the threat posed by blood clots, this makes fish oil a valuable contribution to their diet. Should you not be a fan of the taste of fish, omega-3 fatty acids can be found in supplement form. 3. Vitamin E When you were a kid, chances are your parents spent much of their time encouraging you to get all your vitamins, either through a health diet or physically taking a multivitamin. But they may not have explained that each type of vitamin is different. Take vitamin E for example. Available in a wide range of foods, including almonds, whole grains, sunflowers, eggs, seeds, and nuts, it’s been shown to help discourage the formation of blood clots and limit the chances of heart attack or stroke. Not a big fan of eggs, nuts, seeds or whole grains? Like most vitamins, vitamin E is widely available in supplement form. 4. Herbs with Coumarin There are literally hundreds of thousands of medications available to help prevent or treat serious health problems, like heart attack or stroke. But do you know where many of these medications come from? You may be surprised to hear that some, such as the medication warfarin — which is designed to help prevent blood clots — are made from easily acquired herbs. In fact, warfarin contains a compound known coumarin, which can be found in plants like angelica root, arnica flower, anise, chamomile, fenugreek, licorice root, parsley and red clover. That said, consuming these herbs may be a problem if you’re already on a blood-thinning medication like warfarin, so be sure to talk to your doctor before adding them to your diet. 5. Ginger You’ve probably heard that ginger can help reduce digestive inflammation and aid someone in overcoming mild upset stomach or indigestion, but did you know it can also help thin the blood? That’s because ginger contains salicylate, a type of acid that’s found in a few types of plants. In fact, salicylic acid is the technical name for aspirin, which can help reduce inflammation in the human body and may event assist in preventing a stroke. Ginger is readily available in root, spice or tea forms, so it’s easy to make it a regular part of your diet. Just be sure to check with your doctor to ensure it doesn’t present problems for any medications you may have been prescribed. 6. Avocado Avocado can help prevent blood clots in two ways: first, it contains omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to limit the formation of platelets and the development of blood clots. Second, like ginger it contains salicylate, which has also been shown to limit the chances of blood clots from forming. Avocadoes are easy to find at most grocery stores and make an excellent addition to just about any dish, from guacamole to sandwiches and salads. Just be sure to check with your family doctor to ensure it won’t interact negatively with any blood-thinning medications you may have been prescribed.
