    Anticoagulation Services

    Samaritan's anticoagulation services are available for patients with a Samaritan health care provider and who are on the blood thinner "warfarin" (Coumadin®) in Benton, Linn and Lincoln counties.

    Warfarin is an anticoagulant medication that works to prevent the blood from clotting so that it is less likely to block blood vessels. Too much warfarin can cause significant bleeding, while too little warfarin will not provide adequate protection from blood clots. For this reason you will need to have regular blood tests to monitor and help determine the amount of warfarin you should take.

    Our anticoagulation staff will help answer any questions you may have about warfarin and how it may impact your life. Our staff is also able to provide management of low molecular weight heparin (long-term or for "bridging") as well as provide education about the new oral anticoagulants. In the meantime, you can watch the instructional video below to learn more about the blood thinner warfarin.
