Western Wisconsin Health provides personalized care to patients on anticoagulation medications. Anticoagulants or blood thinners are medications used to treat and reduce the risk of blood clots. Without treatment, blood clots can block your circulation and can even lead to heart attack or stroke. Pharmacists and registered nurses specially trained in anticoagulation therapy monitor and adjust your medications for the period of time needed.
Benefits of anticoagulation management include:
- Anticoagulation therapy education
- Finger-stick testing
- Monitoring of blood test results and medication dosing
- Dosage adjustments and follow-up appointments in person and in writing
- Better control and fewer complications
Your provider will refer you to the service. The anticoagulation management staff will call you to arrange your first appointment.
