Warfarin: Information About Warfarin | Warfarin Interactions | Warfarin Side Effects (2018) Coumadin
 
04:21
Coumadin: Information About Coumadin For Patients | Coumadin Interactions | Coumadin Side Effects | Warfarin Patient Information | Warfarin Food Drug Interactions Hey guys! This weeks video is a short guide on warfarin also known as (coumadin). I see many patients on warfarin everyday and they are very knowledgable about their medicine, which is fantastic! But here's some information about warfarin, how it works, international normalised ratio (INR) and interactions which you may find useful. WHAT IS WARFARIN: Warfarin is the main oral anticoagulant used in the UK. An anticoagulant is a medicine that prevents blood clotting. Clotting (thickening) is a complex process involving a number of substances called clotting factors. Clotting factors are produced by the liver and help control bleeding. They work with cells that trigger the clotting process (platelets) to ensure blood clots effectively. Warfarin blocks one of the enzymes (proteins) that uses vitamin K to produce clotting factors. This disrupts the clotting process, making it take longer for the blood to clot. WHEN IS WARFARIN PRESCRIBED: Anticoagulant medicines, such as warfarin, are often prescribed for people who've had a condition caused by a blood clot or have an increased risk of developing harmful blood clots. TAKING WARFARIN: It's very important that you take warfarin exactly as directed. Don't increase your prescribed dose unless the doctor in charge of your care advises you to. Warfarin is taken once a day, usually in the evening. It's important to take your dose at the same time each day, before, during or after a meal. The aim of warfarin therapy is to decrease the blood's tendency to clot, but not stop it clotting completely. This means the dose of warfarin you're taking must be carefully monitored and, if necessary, adjusted. You'll have regular blood tests at your GP surgery or local anticoagulant clinic to make sure your dose is correct. The INR is a measure of how long it takes your blood to clot. When you start taking warfarin, you may be given a yellow booklet about anticoagulants, which explains your treatment. INTERACTIONS WITH WARFARIN Medicines Warfarin can interact with many other medicines, herbal medicines and supplements. Always ask your pharmacist, GP or staff at your anticoagulant clinic before you take them as they may interact with your warfarin. Also visit https://bnf.nice.org.uk/interaction/warfarin.html to check medication interactions. Foods and drink Foods containing large amounts of vitamin K include: • Green leafy vegetables, such as broccoli and spinach • Vegetable oils • Cereal grains • Small amounts of vitamin K can also be found in meat and dairy foods. When your first dose of warfarin is prescribed, it doesn't matter how much vitamin K you're eating because the dosage will be based on your current blood clotting levels. However, if you make significant changes to your diet, such as increasing your vitamin K intake or cutting out foods that contain vitamin K, it could interfere with how warfarin works. Consult the healthcare professional responsible for your care before making any significant changes to your diet while taking warfarin. Why you should avoid cranberry juice whilst taking warfarin is in the link lower down. Alcohol Getting drunk or binge drinking is dangerous while taking warfarin. It may increase the effect of the drug, increasing the risk of bleeding. See links below for more information.

Coumadin Rap Song
 
03:44
The idea of creating a rap song about the drug coumadin was envisioned by Dr. Gregory Stajich, Pharm.D., in the mid 90's while working at a hospital in Atlanta. The song was shelved for many years until combining forces with one of his pharmacy students, Josh Pendley, under the name "RxP". Together the dynamic druggist duo finalized the lyrics, wrote some music, and then recorded a music video in order to give the viewer a bolus dose of patient education about this very important drug. An article about this song was featured in the Savannah Morning Newspaper, and can be found at: http://savannahnow.com/accent/2010-09-28/rappin-pharmacy-professor-makes-youtube-video

If you prefer to watch the video without any music, you can go to my website... you will also find the audio there: http://wp.me/s4CVjD-coumadin I hope this & all of the videos help you tremendously. Much love, - Caroline Warfarin aka Coumadin is the most used oral anticoagulant in the world and has been used for more than 50 years for therapy in prevention of thrombus formation and subsequent thromboembolic events. Anticoagulants are blood thinners which prevent formation of blood clots as well as prevent existent blood clots from increasing in size. Blood clots can hinder blood circulation and lead to serious medical conditions, like stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism. Thus warfarin is helpful in treating and preventing vein and artery blockage, stroke and heart attack. Mechanism of Action Warfarin slows down the formation of blood clots within 24 hours, but the complete effect takes place between 72 to 96 hours after taking the medication. Blood clot formation is a complicated process which requires certain compounds known as coagulating factors to be present. These coagulating factors are produced by the liver. In the presence of sufficient vitamin K. Warfarin acts by inhibiting the presence of vitamin K and this inhibits the formation of coagulating factors. Substances that require vitamin K for their formation are: the anticoagulant proteins C and S and factors II, VII, IX, and X. Therefore, medications like warfarin block coagulating factors and disturb the process of clot formation. Thus slowing down blood clot formation. In the case of blood clots that are already formed, warfarin stops the clot from getting bigger. It also prevents breakage of the clot which can be otherwise dangerous if it travels in the bloodstream and blocks blood vessels. Warfarin cannot destroy or dissolve a blood clot that is already there. But the blood clot itself may slowly dissolve with time. Nor can Warfarin reverse ischemic tissue damage either, but, may help avoid secondary thromboembolic complications that can be dangerous and even fatal. Indication Warfarin (Coumadin) is indicated for/to: • Prophylaxis, pulmonary embolism (PE), venous thrombosis and its extension, and to prevent blood clots from moving to other parts of the body. • Reduce the risk of another stroke or heart attack in clients who already have had stroke or heart attack, and to reduce the risk of death. • Prevent and treat blood clots associated with atrial fibrillation (irregular rapid heartbeat), heart-valve replacement and blood clots in lungs and legs.

Beyond aspirin: beyond Coumadin; Eliquis, Xarelto and the other NOACs
 
09:28
PrevMedHeartRisk.com Over 90% of heart attacks and strokes are due to clots, not plaque. Therefore, "blood thinners", or antiplatelet medications are critical concerns if you have plaque and inflammation. Aspirin was covered in another video. Viewers have asked that we discuss the newer medications. Warfarin (or coumadin) was the next generation after aspirin. It's been around for years and helped cover situations, like stents, that required more than aspirin. Warfarin has always had a lot of problems. That's understandable. It's been the major component of rat poisons. It requires constant monitoring. There are often bleeding episodes associated with things as simple as a change in diet. Plavix is the next generation. (Clopidogrel). It's a major step forward. But it really should be accompanied by a genetic test to get the right dose. There is yet another generation of these medications. They are called NOACs (Novel Oral AntiCoagulants). Many have debated that these are as safe - or safer than- aspirin. Ellaquis and Xarelto are examples. Studies show that less than 1/3 of patients needing these meds are actually taking them. Is that the doctors' fault? or the patients? Clearly both. A couple of other things are mentioned: CHAD2VASC2 and DAPT, or Dual AntiPlatelet Therapy. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. He went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine at Hopkins. From there, he made a career of practicing and managing preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His later role in this area was Chief Medical Officer for Premise, which has over 500 primary care/ prevention clinics. He was also the Chief Medical Officer for MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. More recently, he founded PrevMed, a heart attack, stroke, and diabetes prevention clinic. At PrevMed, we focus on heart attack and stroke and Type 2 diabetes prevention by reducing or eliminating risk through attentive care and state-of-the-art genetic testing, imaging, labs and telemedicine options.

NCLEX Question: Coumadin & Patient Education
 
03:31
EmpoweRN.com This is a video nursing exam or NCLEX style question going over the medication coumadin. I have placed this video in the format that helped me pass nursing school with honors and the NCLEX examination on the first attempt in 75 questions. I know it may seem unreasonably long… but it is not. Take your time, follow the instructions and read each word slowly. Lets get started ;) Title: NCLEX Question: Coumadin & Patient Education A client has been on Warfarin (Coumadin) for several weeks already. Which of the following nursing interventionsj is most crucial for the client? A. Instruct client to ambulate slowly B. Ensure that the client is kept cool and dry C. Use safety razor when shaving the client D. Instruct client to use a soft toothbrush for oral care Correct Answer: D – It will decrease the risk/possibility of bleeding due to oral care. A and B. Keeping client cool and ambulating slowly is not crucial as of the moment in providing care for the client. C. An electric shaver and not a safety razor, should be used. For more questions & for the main video visit here: http://wp.me/s4CVjD-coumadin Warfarin aka Coumadin is the most used oral anticoagulant in the world and has been used for more than 50 years for therapy in prevention of thrombus formation and subsequent thromboembolic events. Anticoagulants are blood thinners which prevent formation of blood clots as well as prevent existent blood clots from increasing in size. Blood clots can hinder blood circulation and lead to serious medical conditions, like stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism. Thus warfarin is helpful in treating and preventing vein and artery blockage, stroke and heart attack. Mechanism of Action Warfarin slows down the formation of blood clots within 24 hours, but the complete effect takes place between 72 to 96 hours after taking the medication. Blood clot formation is a complicated process which requires certain compounds known as coagulating factors to be present. These coagulating factors are produced by the liver. In the presence of sufficient vitamin K. Warfarin acts by inhibiting the presence of vitamin K and this inhibits the formation of coagulating factors. Substances that require vitamin K for their formation are: the anticoagulant proteins C and S and factors II, VII, IX, and X. Therefore, medications like warfarin block coagulating factors and disturb the process of clot formation. Thus slowing down blood clot formation. In the case of blood clots that are already formed, warfarin stops the clot from getting bigger. It also prevents breakage of the clot which can be otherwise dangerous if it travels in the bloodstream and blocks blood vessels. Warfarin cannot destroy or dissolve a blood clot that is already there. But the blood clot itself may slowly dissolve with time. Nor can Warfarin reverse ischemic tissue damage either, but, may help avoid secondary thromboembolic complications that can be dangerous and even fatal.

You may also take a blood thinner if you have An abnormal heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation Heart valve surgery Congenital heart defects There are two main types of blood thinners. Anticoagulants, such as heparin or warfarin (also called Coumadin), work on chemical reactions in your body to lengthen the time it takes to form a blood clot. Antiplatelet drugs, such as aspirin, prevent blood cells called platelets from clumping together to form a clot. When you take a blood thinner, follow directions carefully. Make sure that your healthcare provider knows all of the medicines and supplements you are using.

NOACs vs Coumadin (Warfarin) - Preventing Strokes, the #1 cause of disability
 
08:19
ford brewer md mph . PrevMedHeartRisk.com Atrial Fib is the biggest rising cause of disability. High BP is a major cause of strokes as well, but we are managing BP better on a population basis. Anti-coagulants ( not antiplatelets) prevent stroke with a fib. Coumadin has been the big preventive until recently. But it has disadvantages: 35 days to effective levels, weekly blood test monitoring for effectiveness, and significant dietary restrictions re: Vitamin K. Samples include collard greens, spinach, kale, turnip greens, broccoli, and even blueberries, blackberries and tuna. The NOACs are now available. They are dabigatran ( Pradaxa), rivaroxaban (Xarelto), Apixaban ( Eliquis), and Edoxaban (Savaysa). NOAC advantages include: immediate effect, no weekly blood test requirement, fewer ( maybe no) food restrictions, and - most importantly - LESS BLEEDING THAN COUMADIN (including fewer hemorrhagic strokes). The only advantage for coumadin would be an immediate antidote ( Vit K). That's not much of an advantage compared to less bleeding in the first place. Also, Pradaxa already has an immediate antidote. And the other NOACS are scheduled to have immediate antidotes in less than a year. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor.

Understanding Coumadin (Warfarin)
 
02:45
After having heart surgery, some patients will be prescribed Coumadin to help prevent the development of blood clots. Here’s what you should know.
L120Y | HEART DISEASE | COUMADIN | WHOLISTIC MEDICAL NUTRITION
 
08:32
Steve from Utah is calling in to talk about his father who is on Coumadin who has had several heart surgeries, he has an artificial valve that is mechanical and the doctors tell him that he has to take Coumadin every day. The MDs have told his father that if he takes the nutrients he will have complications. Dr. G explains that this is where the MDs are wrong and that the MDs know nothing about medical nutrition. As a matter of fact they know nothing about nutrition. Fortunately there are some places such as Washington state that the MDs and the Naturopathic doctors are working together and forwarding the practice of good clinical medicine. Most MDs unfortunately don't know about applied holistic medical nutrition and the MDs have no understanding whatsoever of what Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9 can do or understand the essential nutrients that the body needs. Trying to convince the MDs that Steve's father is a candidate for medical nutrition is like trying to convince a communist that people should be allowed to vote. Medical nutrition to an MD is just not in their world view, so Steve's father is up against a rock and a hard place. Doctor G suggests giving Steve's father the appropriate nutritional supplements by body weight each month and suggests not telling anyone that he is taking these, then see if his blood tests start to normalize. If his blood tests start to normalize they should start taking him off of the Coumadin and any other kind of drugs that he is on. Dr. G talks about the commander who he had on the show earlier and when he first met the commander he was over 300 pounds and on more Coumadin that a person should be able to tolerate. He has now lost over 100 pounds, he had over 17 or 18 blood clots, they are now all gone, his blood sugar has normalized, and he is now off of the Coumadin. He did it all in a step down process while he was replacing the essential nutrients that his body had lost. Because the MDs have no practical experience in this that are going to tell you that Vitamin K is dangerous and this that in every other thing they can think of because they don't know anything about medical nutrition. It's not the MDs fall but they just don't know that they are practicing old outdated medicine. Steve says that the real problem is that his father believes what the MDs are telling him. Dr. G says there is nothing you can do if that's what he believes. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink it. An option that Steve might have is to hook him up with a couple of bottles of plant minerals, this will give him about 66% of his nutrient needs. Often times when we can get them just on the plant minerals the folks will feel better and this will give a foot in the door to show them the other options to nutrify the body.
