CheckUp Care Warfarin
One of the most common treatments for several diseases associated with increased risk of thromboembolic complications is to prescribe the anti-coagulated medical Waran. Patients who are treated with Warfarin need regularly controls to check the INR value -- the viscosity -- of their blood. The controls are in their present form both complicated and time-consuming. They also take up a significant part of the health care center staff resources. With that in mind, it is important to improve the traditional way to handle routine checkups of Warfarin treatment -- both from a safety and an economic point of view. The new technology, in this case in form of CheckUp Care designed as a bag, simplifies both the regular control and the Warfarine dosage. The system can easily be performed at hospitals, health care centers and even in the patient's home

Direct oral anticoagulants - Video abstract 129235
Video abstract of Original Research paper" Utilization and prescribing patterns of direct oral anticoagulants" published in the open access International Journal of General Medicine by Whitworth et al. Background: Scant literature exists evaluating utilization patterns for direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs). Objectives: The primary objective was to assess DOAC prescribing in patients with venous thromboembolism (VTE) and nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF) in outpatient clinics. Secondary objectives were to compare utilization between family medicine (FM) and internal medicine (IM) clinics, characterize potentially inappropriate use, and identify factors associated with adverse events (AEs). Methods: This was a retrospective cohort study of adults with NVAF or VTE who received a DOAC at FM or IM clinics between 10/19/2010 and 10/23/2014. Descriptive statistics were utilized for the primary aim. Fisher’s exact test was used to evaluate differences in prescribing using an adapted medication appropriateness index. Logistic regression evaluated factors associated with inappropriate use and AEs. Results: One-hundred twenty patients were evaluated. At least 1 inappropriate criterion was met in 72 patients (60.0%). The most frequent inappropriate criteria were dosage (33.0%), duration of therapy (18.4%), and correct administration (18.0%). Apixaban was dosed inappropriately most frequently. There was no difference in dosing appropriateness between FM and IM clinics. The odds of inappropriate choice were lower with apixaban compared to other DOACs (odds ratio [OR]=0.088; 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.008–0.964; p=0.047). Twenty-seven patients (22.5%) experienced an AE while on a DOAC, and the odds of bleeding doubled with each inappropriate criterion met (OR=1.949; 95% CI 1.190–3.190; p=0.008). Conclusion: Potentially inappropriate prescribing of DOACs is frequent with the most common errors being dosing, administration, and duration of therapy. These results underscore the importance of prescriber education regarding the appropriate use and management of DOACs.

Warfarin-induced DVT - Video abstract 62100
Video abstract of case report paper "Warfarin-induced deep vein thrombosis" published in the open access International Medical Case Reports Journal by Binymin KA, Nasher M and Patel D. Abstract: We are presenting a 72-year-old female who was admitted to hospital with deep vein thrombosis (DVT). She was known to have atrial fibrillation and was initiated on warfarin for stroke prophylaxis 3 days earlier. She was given warfarin therapy without low molecular weight heparin cover as per “slow-start regimen” protocol. The warfarin dose was increased after 3 days to achieve rapid anticoagulation, resulting in DVT in the left leg. We propose that the higher unopposed warfarin dose utilized in this case resulted in DVT. Warfarin loading doses may paradoxically result in a hypercoagulable state and potential clot formation because of significant reductions in protein C and protein S levels.

Low Calcium Levels: You might have to reduce the intake of beetroot juice if you want to keep your bones healthy and strong. Why? Because drinking beetroot juice has be known to reduce the calcium levels in the body thereby leading to certain bone related problems. 4. Pregnancy: Pregnancy is one phase in the life of a woman where she has to be really careful about a lot of things with food being one of the most important elements. Since the betaine present in beetroots can be harmful, the best suggestion you could take would be to avoid consuming beetroot juice until you nursing period is done. 5. Vocal Cords: This might sound a little scary! Did you ever imagine that your vocal cords could get affected by what you drink? In this case, drinking excess beetroot juice can result in temporary paralysis of your vocal cords. You can tone down this side effect by making juice out of organic beetroots or by adding additional vegetables like celery or carrots with your beet juice. 6. Diarrhea: A lot of people often suggest using beetroots to get rid of constipation problems due to its effect on gut motility. However, one of side effects of using beets is that it can result in diarrhea. It can have a profound effect on your lower digestive tract. 7. Beeturia: Don’t get worried with the name of the side effect! It just means that your stools or urine may appear a weird red or pink in color. Don’t panic! It is just a result of drinking lots of beetroot juice. So the next time you observe anything weird like this, you can probably blame it on your beetroot consumption. 8. Liver Toxicity: When you use beetroot juice to detoxify your body, a lot of toxins get accumulated in your liver and leads to an increase in the levels of toxicity. So if you are already suffering from certain liver conditions, then make sure that you just consume small quantities of beet juice. https://youtu.be/3-yM3Oo74wM

Drinking Apple Cider Vinegar Before Bedtime Will Change Your Life For Good
Although Apple Cider Vinegar has an overpowering acidic taste, you don’t have to drink it straight to benefit from its amazing properties. Some of those properties include raw enzymes and the promotion of good bacteria in the digestive tract. In order to avoid the taste, some people will substitute Apple Cider Vinegar for regular vinegar when pickling their favorite vegetables, or pair it with olive oil to make a salad dressing with a little kick. However, by simply diluting Apple Cider Vinegar or adding it to tea before bedtime you can significantly improve several areas of your health. Consider a few ways that ACV helps if you take it before bedtime: 1. Halitosis You know that awful taste in your mouth that you wake up with in the morning? It’s probably due to too much bacteria in your mouth. Drinking one tablespoon with eight ounces of water and a slice of lemon before bed, will keep that bacteria at bay and let you wake up more refreshed. 2. Lower Blood Sugar Some people have difficulties sleeping because of a peak in their blood sugar level at night. It’s one of the leading causes of insomnia, and it also impedes the body from burning fat. Apple Cider Vinegar lowers blood sugar levels because it increases insulin sensitivity. If you aren’t already on blood sugar medicine, try taking two teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar right before bed each evening and see if you don’t have a more restful night. If you are taking prescription medication for diabetes, please speak with your doctor before using this natural remedy. 3. Hiccups This nice trick overrides nerves in your throat that are responsible for hiccups. If these nerves have to deal with powerful taste in Apple Cider Vinegar, hiccups become less of an issue. For this, you’ll need to drink one undiluted teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar. 4. Sinus Relief If you’ve got a stopped up nose because it’s pollen season again, don’t forget about Apple Cider Vinegar. Rather than reaching for an over-the-counter decongestant, rely on the B vitamins to work with the potassium and magnesium in Apple Cider Vinegar, to loosen up your sinuses so you can breathe easier. 5. Drop Unwanted Pounds More and more people are incorporating Apple Cider Vinegar into their weight loss regimen. However, did you know that not getting a good night’s sleep is also associated with being overweight? Researchers now know that Apple Cider Vinegar inhibits the body when it tries to convert starches into calories. Not only that, but it also reduces your appetite. The pectin it contains actually makes you feel more satisfied, so when it’s time to go to bed and your hungry, sip a little Apple Cider Vinegar tea to feel satisfied and sleep better. 6. Reflux Remedy When your stomach is void of the necessary amount of acid, it tends to move around to do the job that the full amount would easily do. When that happens, some of the acid can sneak up the esophagus and burn your throat. Apple Cider Vinegar helps to replace that stomach acid and balance your intestinal tract. Try a tablespoon with a full glass of water about an hour before lying down. 7. Sore Throat Apple Cider Vinegar is a powerful anti-bacterial. Its acidity helps kill bacteria that live in the back of your throat. If you have a sore throat, in thirty minute intervals, take one teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar. About an hour before bed, drink one teaspoon. After thirty minutes, drink another. Finally, drink the third just before bed. 8. Restless Legs If you have restless legs or are often plagued with leg cramps in the middle of the night, it’s probably a sign that you’re not getting enough potassium in your diet. By adding two tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar to eight ounces of water, you can quickly boost your potassium levels and avoid these annoying issues. 9. Upset Stomach Sometimes a simple remedy like Apple Cider Vinegar can settle an upset stomach. Again, by helping restore the pH level in the digestive tract, you can rid yourself of excess gas and even stomach cramping. Try a warm cup of water with one teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar to calm an upset stomach.

Do blood thinners have any side effects during Pregnancy? - Dr. Mangala Devi KR
Like all drugs even blood thinners have a few side effects. However these side effects re due to prolonged use, used without proper monitoring, so what are the side effects? These side effects are usually due to bleeding at various sites. So there may be bleeding form the gums, bleeding form the teeth or even bleeding in the stools or vomitus or bleeding even during passing urine. Sometimes very rarely there may be bleed at the placental site. Hoverer this is very rare. Apart from this some of the not so common side effects include osteoporosis or increased bone loss or also hair loss or in some cases there may be also birth effects with the use of warfarin. But this is again with warfarin which tend to cross the placental barrier. But drugs like heparin or low molecular weight heparin are injectable or not cross the blood placental barrier and thereby their side effects are almost negligible on the fetus. Apart from this you may also have some local allergic reactions or even skin necrosis or skin discolouration. So it is every important that these side effects are made as minimal as possible. So these can be done by the following measures, one we use PTT or Prothrombin time or the APTT. These are certain blood tests that can be used to monitor the blood coagulation during the pregnancy and thereby we can prevent the bleeding complications. Apart from that it is also important that the doctor choses the right blood thinner for the right patients and it is also important that the patient is aware of the side effects and report immediately. At the most we may have to stop the blood thinner and start the antidote.

Xarelto 101 The Facts About This Potentially Dangerous Drug
Experienced personal injury attorney, Marc Whitehead, discusses the facts about the medication Xarelto, the drugs potentially dangerous side effects, and the resources available to those who may have been harmed by the use of Xarelto. Invented and manufactured by the pharmaceutical giant Bear, Xarelto is an oral anti-coagulant designed to prevent blood clots by preventing factor XA. It's marketed by Johnson pharmaceutical as Xarelto and is the first oral active direct factor XA inhibitor. On July 1st 2011 the FDA approved the use of Xarelto for adults having knee or hip replacement surgery. Researchers quickly discovered one of the most serious adverse side effects of Xarelto was internal bleeding. Although this is a common side effect of anit-coagulant medications, Xarelto poses a more serious threat because there is no current antidote to reverse the blood thinning effects. In an emergency situation patients can be at risk of irreversible bleeding complications that can be life threatening. According to a document compiled by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices 356 reports of serious disabling or fatal injuries reported as a result of Xarelto were filed to the FDA in the first quarter of 2012 alone. In an ironic twist the same document noted that one of the most common side effects of Xarelto was blockage problem that the medication was actually designed to treat and prevent. Most of the patients that suffered from this blockage had only taken this medication for a short period- Post surgery treatment. Although the exact number of lawsuits filed against Johnson and Johnson pharmaceutical and Bear health care is unknown the charges raise include the following: - Johnson and Bear failed to properly warn patients of the risks and potentially life threatening internal bleeding when taking Xarelto. -The makers of Xarelto did not advise Medical professionals of how to act to stabilize patients in the event of bleeding. -Johnson and Bear marketed the medication as a superior alternative to walfarin- despite having knowledge that Xarelto had more frequent instances of internal bleeding and transfusions then is competitors. -The manufacturers exhibited a bias for maximizing profits instead of minimizing the dangerous effect of the drug.
