CVC has a robust, well-established outpatient Anticoagulation Clinic managed by your CVC provider and a team of highly experienced, certified Anticoagulation Registered Nurses. Our anticoagulation team focuses on the blood thinner Warfarin (Coumadin®) and provides specialized education and medication management (including bridging with Lovenox when indicated), to those at risk for blood clots related to a cardiac condition and/or disease. This includes individuals with a history of heart disease, atrial fibrillation, mechanical heart valve, myocardial infarction (heart attack), stroke, and other cardiac indications. Our clinic’s goal is to keep you safe and decrease your risk of adverse events by providing highly individualized ongoing monitoring of your Warfarin anticoagulant therapy.
Key services include ordering, tracking, and monitoring your INR (Interntional Normalized Ratio) lab result in an effort to properly dose your Warfarin drug therapy.
Ask your CVC provider if enrolling in our Anticoagulation Clinic is appropriate for you.
