The Thrombosis program provides consultation and continuing care for children and young adults with thrombosis or at risk of developing thrombosis. The service receives consultations from different pediatric subspecialties in the hospital as well as from pediatricians and family physicians in the community. It is also an anticoagulation resource for families and health care professionals around the province.
The INR Point of Care (POC) Monitor program was developed for patients who require frequent bloodwork because of unstable INR values. Patients receive a 1-year loan of a POC monitor that can be used at home to check INR by finger poke. Families call the Thrombosis service with the INR value and anticoagulation is adjusted by telephone.
Patients are usually seen in the clinic on Tuesday afternoons.
