Coumadin Clinic


Illinois Heart and Vascular patients have the opportunity to have their Coumadin (warfarin) therapy monitored at any IHAV office. Patients are phoned with their PT/INR results and dose instructions the day lab results are received. In-office PT/INR testing is also available.

Each visit includes:

  • One on one consultation with a Registered Nurse

All RN notes and INR results are entered into a database that can generate patient and physician reports that include:

  • INR therapeutic goal
  • INR graph
  • Past and current Coumadin dose
  • Clinic statistics are tracked, including percentage of patients in/out of therapeutic range and thrombotic/hemorrhagic events
