What is Jantoven or Warfarin?
Anticoagulation is typically monitored using Jantoven or Warfarin which is a blood thinning medication. Jantoven or Warfarin requires extensive monitoring and management, and it is monitored by performing a blood test called the international normalized ratio (INR). Depending on certain factors, there is an ideal therapeutic INR range for each patient. The INR should be checked regularly to ensure proper treatment.
Existing patients of Morristown Cardiology physicians who have been prescribed anticoagulants must make an appointment to have their INR test done and medications adjusted. After the INR is done, results are communicated to patients' managing cardiologists and primary care physicians. Our nurses provide one-on-one education and counseling regarding medication management.
