Managing Coumadin as a PCP: Case Study for Nurse Practitioners

Dec 10, 2019

You're on call and you get paged about a critical INR...

You get a new patient from the ED who just started on coumadin for a DVT...

You're spending way too much time leafing through resources, trying to figure out when to draw their labs, how often, and how to adjust their dose...

If this sounds like you, this week's video has got you covered.

  • How to know what dose to prescribe, when to adjust their doses and when to come back to the clinic
  • Whether a patient should go to an anti-coagulation clinic or be managed in-house
  • What to look for in patients with critical INRs, and when to send them to the ED
  • My favorite algorithms to make life easier.

PLUS! Another cheat sheet & dosing algorithm (two gems!) for you to download when you sign up below this video, all about Coumadin management to keep at your desk, so you don't have to worry about taking notes while listening.

(FYI: to slow down the audio speed, hit the gear symbol in the bottom right corner and change it to .75x or .5x. Closed captions are also located at the bottom R hand corner of the video.)

Download your cheat sheet here.

Once you've watched, I'd love to hear from you.

What is one tip that you can take and apply to your practice to help with warfarin management? I'd love to know!

Leave me a comment below. Be sure to share your thought directly in the comments, no links or videos as they may be removed.

Thanks so much for watching. Hang in there, and I'll see you soon.
