No there is no risk of bleeding with INR of 1.1 as this is normal. Risk of bleeding is when INR is over 3. For surgical procedures it is preferred to have the INR at 1.2

Is it dangerous to have a 6.5 blood level of Coumadin or Warfarin sodium which is above the level 2 that is recommended and what should be done?

I am assuming by "blood level" that you mean the International Normalized Ratio (INR), as we do not normally check the actual blood level of Warfarin. Warfarin is a commonly used anticoagulant (blood thinner) medication. The level of INR that a patient requires actually varies depending upon the condition they are being treated for. 6.5 is never a therapeutic goal for Warfarin. Elevated INR levels indicate that a patient may bleed. The management for an INR of 6.5 depends upon the presence of bleeding. If the patient is not actively bleeding, it is appropriate to hold the next two scheduled doses of Warfain and monitor the INR. The Warfarin may be resumed when the INR is back to range. IF the patient is bleeding, the Warfarin will need to be stopped and Vitamin K needs to be administered, as well as medical treatment for bleeding. This would be the standard of care in this case.

Can you have cortisone injections while on warfarin?

You can, but it should be avoided.. Higher risk of bleeding, and interactions on INR. If cortisone injections are required, they should be given at low INR (around 2.0 or 2.5 ) and INR should be monitored closely in the following days.

What could cause a INR of 10.8 in a hospital setting while taking coumadin?

Overdosage. Stop coumadin and give Vitamin K as an antidote. Bleeding is a risk.

If a patient is taking Coumadin and his INR is 10 should I give Heparin?

NO! First, recheck your numbers/ repeat the test.. an INR of 10 is way out of range. Did you accidentally type in 10 when you meant 1.0?? Typically, the target numbers of INR/PT for a patient in warfarin (Coumadin) is between 2.0 and 4.0 (Prothrombin time). An INR/PT of 10 means your patient is at risk to bleed out. Do NOT give another blood thiinner like Heparin, as this will exacerbate the problem. Get the doc on this case involved stat please.

Will vitamin k lower INR levels?

Vitamin K can lower your INR. It is important to monitor INR levels. The lower your INR, the greater risk you have for blood clots to occur. Optimal INR levels are between 2.5-3.5.

What is vit k an antidote for?

Warfarin is a blood thinning drug. It is very useful for treating and preventing blood clots. The blood thinning property of warfarin is measured by a blood test called INR (International Normalised Ratio); the finger-prick test each time a patient visits the anticoagulant clinic. The INR value needs to be maintained within a narrow target range (2.0-3.0 for most types of clotting disorders) for safe and effective treatment. The INR value can sometimes go above the set target range which can increase the risk of bleeding. As such vitamin K is used as an antidote to reverse INR

Is it dangerous to fly with an INR of 4.9?

I would not risk it so Yes

Is life expectancy reduced by coumadin therapy?

No. Properly used - and monitored with PT and INR levels, Coumadin (warfarin) can potentially prolong life (e.g. by minimizing the risk of blood clots, strokes and other cardiovascular pathologies). However, risk of bleeding is enhanced by this anticoagulant therapy. Thus, if the patient is at increased risk of falling, cerebral hemorrage could occur - and this could end up reducing one's life expectancy. Ultimately, the benefits of coumadin therapy must be weighed against the risks.

What is the danger of low inr?

The "INR" stands for international normalized ratio, when referring to laboratory studies. A "low" INR is normal, and there are no specific dangers. However, if a patient requires anticoagulant therapy (Coumadin, Lovenox, etc.), then a low INR would mean a greater chance of developing a blood clot.

What is the antidote for warfarin sodium?

Vitamin Kis usually needed for a patient with anINR over 9 or has serious bleeding. It's usually NOT needed for INRs under 5. However it is controversial when INR isbetween5 and 9 and when there is no bleeding. becaise vitamin K can bring the INR down faster than just holding warfarin, but it doesn't seem to decrease bleeding risk. For most of these patients, the suggestion isholding warfarin for a dose or two and then adjusting it to get the INR in the appropriate range.But for patients with an INR between 5 and 9 on top ofa high risk of bleeding, the suggestion is giving 1 to 2.5 mg vitamin K. About1 mg is often enough to lower the INR into the therapeutic range in these patients. But this dose is hard to give because the Rx vitamin K tablets only come in 5 mg. Therefore,therecommendation isgiving one-half or one-quarter of a 5 mg tab, because vitamin K tablets are easy to cut with a pill cutter. Another option is givinginjectable vitamin K orally, by dispensing it in an oral syringe and have patients mix it with juice to improve taste. It is discouraged togive vitamin K subcutaneously, because the absorption of vitamin K is less predictable.In addition, only give it IV (intravenously) for patients with very high INRs or serious bleeding due to possible anaphylaxis (allergic reaction).

Will taking a baby aspirin affect the INR level?

Aspirin makes your platelets slippery and inhibits them from sticking together. Aspirin does not affect your INR but can still cause bleeding to be prolonged. Coumadin does affect INR and can be used effectively with aspirin if prescribed. (This is not to be taken as medical advice, but informational purposes). Source: Am a patient with antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, S/P bilateral pulmonary emboli and a TIA. Ten+ years of Coumadin, then Lovenox Injections. Now on coated enteric baby aspirin alone for a year, and INR is just 1.0. Hematologist monitoring.

Inr of 10?

An INR (International Normalized Ratio) of 10 indicates a significantly high level of clotting risk. This may be due to factors such as medication, liver disease, or vitamin K deficiency. Immediate medical attention is needed to address the underlying cause and prevent complications such as excessive bleeding or blood clots.
