Anticoagulation Management

If you have a heart or vascular condition that puts you at risk for blood clots, your treatment may include the use of anticoagulants also called blood thinners — such as warfarin (Coumadin®). These medicines slow down your body’s clotting process to help prevent blood clots, heart attacks and strokes.Because taking blood thinners can raise your risk of bleeding, you’ll need a specialist to closely monitor your health.
