some patients monitor their own warfarin therapy at home

It's now making more sense to have some patients monitor their own warfarin therapy at home...similar to diabetics who monitor their own blood glucose.

Home monitors such as CoaguChek and ProTime are easy to use...and as reliable as traditional lab tests. They also allow patients to test more frequently...usually once or twice a week.

Patients can call in their results to you...or they can be taught how to adjust their own warfarin dose.
