INR services and testing are provided as Point of Care (POC). POC testing is very quick and is considered less invasive that having blood tests taken at pathology.
INRs are performed to monitor the drug level of warfarin in someone’s blood. Warfarin is sometimes prescribed for patients with Atrial Fibrillation (AF), cardiac valve replacements, DVT and some other conditions.
Patients have their test performed and your GP will see you at the time of the test. Your GP will then determine if you medication dose needs to be adjusted.
In the event you do require pathology INR testing, your GP can arrange this for you.
