ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to comparing self-management of oral anticoagulant therapy with clinic management. Patient self-management of oral anticoagulants resulted in similar levels of control and major bleeding and lower rates of arterial thromboembolism and death than clinic-based management. Overall, anticoagulation self-monitoring provides international normalized ratios control that is as good as, or better than, that by a conventional laboratory, is convenient for patients, and may decrease adverse outcomes.
