  Coagulation Monitoring has many benefits

The CoaguChek system is a simple, convenient and safe device that helps you to monitor your coagulation status at home. This thereby reduces the time that you have to spend in hospital, at general practices or at anticoagulation clinics.

Some of the many other advantages of Self-Monitoring include:
  • It only takes a few easy steps and one minute to get an INR result
  • It gives more independence in daily life professionally and privately: there is no need to travel to and from appointments or to interrupt a busy schedule
  • You are actively involved in your own health and treatment, thus more compliant

The most important advantage of Self-Monitoring, however, is that the coagulation status can be regularly and frequently checked, so that anticoagulant therapy can be adjusted when necessary. Frequent testing is essential because factors such as drugs, illness, nutritional intake, alcohol, travelling and stress may interfere with the coagulation status.

Self-Monitoring with CoaguChek XS or CoaguChek S systems means that anticoagulant therapy can be constantly optimised, which decreases the possibility of complications, such as clots or bleedings.
