Coumadin Facts Suggested By Sean For Patients – Video
Yesterday, Sean made some interesting comments to Nancy about the risks of Coumadin use. In his response, Sean referenced an online video for patients and caregivers to learn more about the use of blood thinners (anticoagulants) to prevent clotting for those patients that select a mechanical heart valve replacement.
I just spent some time reviewing the video on anticoagulation (Coumadin / Warfarin). Sean was right on. The team at Discovery Health did a good job with this one. While the video can be a little technical, it is rich with information for people looking to learn more about the advantages and disadvantages, risks and opportunities of Coumadin use.
Keep on tickin!
