Dear Users,

Here are some important documents regarding anticoagulation...
Please download them for reference.

The publication of the British Committee for Standards in Haematology guidelines in oral coagulation in 1998 in the British Journal of Haematology
[www.formulae.com]


The British Committee for Standards in Haematology guidelines in oral coagulation (warfarin) update 2005:
[www.formulae.com]
(This details the range change for antiphospholipid syndrome from 3.0-4.0- 2.0-3.0)


RCGP Quality Unit and the National Patient Safety Agency have produced a 'In Safer Hands' document as a guide for clinicians in oral coagulation management.

could you please send me any literature on foods that have a reaction on the I.N.R. Results. As I have a patient who's I.N.R. jumped from 2.7 to 3.7. We have gone over all the usual blood thinning culprit's
Any help would be useful. Many thanks
Karen brodin.

Hi Karen,
If a person's diet is consistent, no matter how unusual it is, it should not affect the INR. A big factor the the Vitamin K content of the food, so if a patient suddenly eats a diet with a change in the Vit K amount it will alter the INR.

Increase in Vit K -> low INR and vice versa.

Here is a useful list:

We have a trial of RAT, and it looks good. One question how can we sort patients alphabetically.
I have looked at the video and the forums and no one else seems to have this problem.

Thanks for your posting on the forum.
Not sure what you mean by sorting the patients alphabetically.

When you click on the 'Red magnet' this sorts the patients in date order for INR review.
