2 MINUTE NCLEX TIPS - Understanding PT/INR Labs ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 0:19 PT (Prothrombin Time) 1:04 How to Calculate the Therapeutic Range for PT 1:34 INR (International Normalized Ratio) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ For patients on anti-coagulation therapy, such as Coumadin, lab results must be monitored closely and must always be assessed before administration of the medication. ------- 2 Tests Are Used: PT and INR ------- PT (prothrombin time) is an older test, but is still sometimes used. The disadvantage to this test is that it varies from lab to lab. It requires a simple calculation for patients who are on anti-coagulation therapy. The therapeutic range is always 1.5 to 2 times the range indicated on the lab report. INR (International Normalized Ratio) is the current standard lab test to evaluate anti-coagulation therapy. It uses a standardized testing reagent, so it does not vary from lab to lab. No calculation is required to interpret the results. Additional Information: In healthy people an INR of 1.1 or below is considered normal. An INR range of 2.0 to 3.0 is typically an effective therapeutic range for people on anti-coagulation therapy ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Medical Psychology of Wisconsin, LLC www.medicalpsych-wi.com
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.

I cover the mechanism of action against vitamin K, the conditions it treats (including atrial fibrillation and deep vein thrombosis a.k.a DVT), the INR and how it should be monitored. This video describes the role of Warfarin in managing atrial fibrillation. Also included are modern day pros and cons of still using this medication that has been available for well over 50 years. Transcript: Thank you for visiting doctor AFib, I'm Dr. Morales. In today's video segment we're going to be talking about a blood thinner that has been on the market for well over 50 years, known as Warfarin or also goes by the brand name of Coumadin.Yes, it was first advertised and marketed as a rat poison way back in the 1940s. But starting in the 1950s it began to be approved for human use as a blood thinner.Nowadays it's actually used for several purposes, including for reducing the risk of stroke for atrial fibrillation, but also for treating deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism as well as an anticoagulant for mechanical heart valves. Starting in the late 1980s and into the 1990s there were several clinical trials comparing Warfarin with aspirin for reducing the risk of stroke for atrial fibrillation.Several times Warfarin was shown to be superior for reducing the risk of stroke.In meta-analysis where they combined data from several clinical trials, it showed that Warfarin reduces the risk of stroke by about 66 percent. However, there are a lot of nuances when it comes to managing somebody who has taken Warfarin. First of all, not everybody's dose is the same based on how individuals metabolize the medication. There's a blood test called an INR, which helps your doctor monitor your Warfarin level to find the right dosage for you.At the beginning, very frequently people will have the blood tested every week until you find the correct dosage for you.After that stage, it may be only checked about once a month The target level on the blood test for most people is between a level between two to three in that INR blood test. However, there's been several studies that have shown that the amount of time people are actually within that recommended range can range anywhere from 50 to 70 percent of the time which shows that at least 30% of the time or even more patients are not within the recommended range of that INR level.

NOACs vs Coumadin (Warfarin) - Preventing Strokes, the #1 cause of disability
 
08:19
ford brewer md mph . PrevMedHeartRisk.com Atrial Fib is the biggest rising cause of disability. High BP is a major cause of strokes as well, but we are managing BP better on a population basis. Anti-coagulants ( not antiplatelets) prevent stroke with a fib. Coumadin has been the big preventive until recently. But it has disadvantages: 35 days to effective levels, weekly blood test monitoring for effectiveness, and significant dietary restrictions re: Vitamin K. Samples include collard greens, spinach, kale, turnip greens, broccoli, and even blueberries, blackberries and tuna. The NOACs are now available. They are dabigatran ( Pradaxa), rivaroxaban (Xarelto), Apixaban ( Eliquis), and Edoxaban (Savaysa). NOAC advantages include: immediate effect, no weekly blood test requirement, fewer ( maybe no) food restrictions, and - most importantly - LESS BLEEDING THAN COUMADIN (including fewer hemorrhagic strokes). The only advantage for coumadin would be an immediate antidote ( Vit K). That's not much of an advantage compared to less bleeding in the first place. Also, Pradaxa already has an immediate antidote. And the other NOACS are scheduled to have immediate antidotes in less than a year. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine.

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.

Beyond aspirin: beyond Coumadin; Eliquis, Xarelto and the other NOACs
 
09:28
PrevMedHeartRisk.com Over 90% of heart attacks and strokes are due to clots, not plaque. Therefore, "blood thinners", or antiplatelet medications are critical concerns if you have plaque and inflammation. Aspirin was covered in another video. Viewers have asked that we discuss the newer medications. Warfarin (or coumadin) was the next generation after aspirin. It's been around for years and helped cover situations, like stents, that required more than aspirin. Warfarin has always had a lot of problems. That's understandable. It's been the major component of rat poisons. It requires constant monitoring. There are often bleeding episodes associated with things as simple as a change in diet. Plavix is the next generation. (Clopidogrel). It's a major step forward. But it really should be accompanied by a genetic test to get the right dose. There is yet another generation of these medications. They are called NOACs (Novel Oral AntiCoagulants). Many have debated that these are as safe - or safer than- aspirin. Ellaquis and Xarelto are examples. Studies show that less than 1/3 of patients needing these meds are actually taking them. Is that the doctors' fault? or the patients? Clearly both. A couple of other things are mentioned: CHAD2VASC2 and DAPT, or Dual AntiPlatelet Therapy. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine.

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.

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

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.

Preventing Strokes: Aspirin, Plavix, Coumadin, Pradaxa, or What?
 
07:36
A large clinical trial testing the effects of aspirin and Plavix to prevent small strokes was stopped because there was no added benefit by combining these drugs and the risk of bleeding was too high. This information was presented at the 2012 American Stroke Association meeting in February of 2012. A second abstract presented at the same conference showed that Coumadin and aspirin were equally effective in preventing deaths and strokes in patients with congestive heart failure. All of the drugs used to anticoagulate people in mainstream medicine, which includes, aspirin, Plavix, Coumadin, and Pradaxa are associated with potentially life-threatening bleeding. Coumadin also has the effect of causing osteoporosis and accelerating arteriosclerosis after just 2 years of treatment. Nutritional medicine offers several options that include fish oil, nattokinase, lumbrokinase, and ginkgo biloba, but they have been alll but ignored by MDs because there's not sufficient research to compare the effects of mainstream drugs to these nutrients. These studies should be done the by NIH! For more information please visit www.doctorsaputo.com

Natural Blood Thinners and Atrial Fibrillation/ Stroke Prevention: Did your doc consider these?
 
08:07
ford brewer md mph . PrevMedHeartRisk.com There are a lot of blood thinners in the herbal medicine list: garlic, nattokinase, ginger, cinnamon, cassia, vitamin e, ginkgobiloba, grape seed extract, cayenne, aspirin, apple cider vinegar, cod liver oil, etc. Most of these are antiplatelets, not anticoagulants. Anticoagulants have been shown to be more effective in terms of prevention of strokes. Safety is also an issue. The strokes we're preventing are infarction, embolic, or ischemic strokes. So, we decrease the formation of blood clots. Unfortunately, that also increases the risk for serious bleeding or hemorrhage, such as hemorrhagic strokes. The research has been clear for over 20 years that anticoagulants seem better than antiplatelets for stroke prevention. And most docs will go with the researched recommendations. These days the researched recommendations are leaning more and more toward the NOACs, the New Oral Anti Coagulants. I have other videos in a series on stroke prevention and atrial fib.
