The Anticoagulation Clinic assists you with ongoing monitoring, blood testing, and dosing instructions when taking warfarin, a blood thinner (also known by the brand names Coumadin® and Jantoven®).
Our specialty teams of pharmacists and nurses work with your primary care physician (PCP) or specialist from Cardiovascular Medicine or Orthopaedics to manage your anticoagulation therapy.
You may be prescribed an anticoagulant by your physician, or upon discharge from the hospital, for the following conditions:
- Atrial fibrillation
- Blood clots
- Deep venous thrombosis (DVT)
- Heart valve replacement
- Pulmonary embolism
