Take Control Of Your Care
For patients who take Coumadin or other anti-coagulants, regular Prothrombin/International Normalized Ratio (PT/INR) testing is vital. PT/INR levels are affected by medications, diet and other factors. Weekly self-testing can help patients maintain a safe PT/INR range and avoid serious complications such as hemorrhage or stroke.
We provide PT/INR meters to help patients test their PT/INR levels on a regular basis. The benefits of using a PT/INR self-test meter on a regular basis include:
- Instant results reported immediately to the patient’s doctor
- Reduced medical complications, fewer health risks, and reduced ER visits
- Peace of mind in knowing health is regularly monitored
- Increased patient self-care and control
If you have a patient who is currently taking anti-coagulant medication and would benefit from regular PT/INR monitoring, contact North Home Healthcare today to learn more about our services.
