Prescribers' behavior following below- versus above-range international normalized ratio values in warfarin-treated deep vein thrombosis patients

Prescribers' behavior following below- versus above-range international normalized ratio values in warfarin-treated deep vein thrombosis patients

Current Medical Research and Opinion 32(7): 1213-1215

Maintaining acceptable international normalized ratio (INR) control among deep vein thrombosis (DVT) patients taking warfarin is challenging. We evaluated prescribers' behavior to out-of-range INRs in DVT patients following initial INR stabilization. Following INR stabilization, a below-range INR was associated with fewer subsequent measurements and warfarin-dosing adjustments, and a longer time to re-achieve a therapeutic INR compared to an above-range INR.
