The Coag-Sense® PT2 uses a quantitative measurement of INR based on a Prothrombin Time (PT) response to monitor the effect of therapy with blood thinners like warfarin. This highly accurate PT/INR system directly detects the clot to monitor changes in impedance. The system is easy to understand, making it a reliable and straightforward way to help you remain healthy while reducing the number of trips to your practitioner for testing.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is an INR monitoring system?
ToggleAn International Normalized Ratio (INR) test measures how long it takes for the blood to clot. This system allows you to test and monitor your INR and ensure it does not go too low or too high.
Who needs a PT/INR monitoring system?
ToggleIf you take blood thinners (anticoagulants) or are at risk of blood clotting, you should monitor your INR. If your INR is too low, it means your risk of a blood clot increases. If the INR is too high, the risk of hemorrhaging increases. Your practitioner might prescribe anticoagulants if you suffer from any of the following diseases or conditions: atrial fibrillation, prosthetic heart valve, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, thrombotic stroke, cancer, or venous thromboembolism.
What is warfarin?
ToggleWarfarin is an anticoagulant used to prevent blood clots from forming.
