VIDEO: How to perform a PT/INR Self-Test

Studies have shown that patients performing home PT/INR testing spend more time in therapeutic range because they are able to monitor their trends. After each test, patients notify their physicians of the results and the physician will determine if any treatment adjustments are required. The Coag-Sense system’s Bluetooth technology also allows home testing service companies to wirelessly transmit your PT/INR Results to your healthcare provider. The goal of self-monitoring PT/INR levels is to improve control and offer testing convenience.
