Clinical and Operational Benefits of INR POCT in Indigenous Communities in the Remote Northern Territory of Australia: Poster 20

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review

    Abstract

    In the Northern Territory (NT) of Australia’s Indigenous population, the prevalence of rheumatic heart disease is higher than any other location in the world. Warfarin is a common anticoagulant used to treat this condition and to minimise risk of stroke. International Normalised Ratio (INR) testing is used routinely to monitor the efficacy of warfarin therapy and to ensure a patient’s INR remains within a tight therapeutic range.
