Dear Shiona, Notes in the history section are permanent. You can remove entries in the scribble pad by simply highlighting and using the backspace. You can also add notes in the scribble pad to qualify entries that have previously been made referring to them as maybe erroneous. Regards Colm Rafferty

Dear Patricia, The first thing to say is that I am not an expert on warfarin pharmacokinetics. Increasing metabolic rate would probably increase the metabolism of warfarin hence a higher dose required. Some patients do tend to be more sensitive to warfarin, especially those that have unusual conditions like antiphospholipid syndrome. It it is appropriate , changing to a NOAC may be simplie

Dear Donna, Normally warfarin start would be 'slow initiation' at 2mg per week for 2 weeks , checking the INR after 7 days (Oates et al regimen). This would be for AF patients. If the patient has clotted e.g. DVT or PE you would be best to use a fast induction regimen. Regards Colm Rafferty

First thought, is it something to do with the printer. As a test, after entering an INR, instead of clicking the print icon (which saves and prints), choose the 'Save' icon on the toolbar (floppy disc icon) This should store the new INR/recommendations. Check this by accessing the patient again , to make sure the data is stored. If correct, then it may be something to do with the printer.
