i don't know if i can tell you what you want to know. i will tell you this. coumadin is taken to make you blood clot, and when they test your clotting factor, and depending on if they have your blood too thin (in this case you would bleed too much too fast) they have to adjust you coumadin dose. is this what you mean?

Coumadin keeps your blood from clotting--it is a blood thinner not clotter.
