Because of the danger of abnormal coagulation (the development of a hard mass of blood within the body commonly known as abnormal blood clotting), Bumrungrad International puts a strong emphasis on prevention, ensuring effective treatment, and care for patients at risk.
Blood clots can cause symptoms as mild as pain and as severe as stroke, heart attack and pulmonary embolism. They are usually treated through the careful use of medication called anticoagulants.
Anticoagulants are drugs that slow down the blood clotting process. The objective is to prevent blood clotting within the circulation system. One of the most commonly used anticoagulants is warfarin.
Patients taking this kind of medicine need regular checks of the appropriate level of inhibition of blood clotting. They are given special instructions which must be followed while taking this medicine. Patients must also be aware of side effects, foods that may have interaction with warfarin, and other cautions for optimal benefit and reduction of risk.
To ensure proper treatment, Bumrungrad has a coordinated, multidisciplinary team of:
working together to determine the proper medication dosage.
