As someone who has struggled with deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolisms, I know how difficult Warfarin therapy can be. That is why my team and I are building a mobile and web application that allows patients to dose safely from home, and remain in constant contact with their medical providers.
I am looking for participants for a Warfarin therapy user research study, so we can design this app to optimally help patients. Please let me know if you are interested.
I had congestive heart failure at the age of 40, i am now 53. I have been on coumadin(warfarin) ever since surgery that involved aortic mechanical valve from St.Judes. I have been home testing my pt/inr levels (2.5-3.5) for almost 3 years, thanks to the Philips company. NO MORE VEIN STICKS on a weekly or biweekly basis. ! I am interested in participating in your study if i can be of any assistance in helping others who have gone or are going thru CHF.thanks a bunch
Is this study still ongoing? I had massive DVT (proximal and distal) and PE 7 years ago. I am on warfarin for life. I have used in home testing units (not connected to my Dr office) so I am comfortable with them but still go to my anticoagulation clinic every 1-2 months, more often if my INR levels get messed up. I am hoping to travel abroad for longer stints (as much as 6 months at a time) stating in the next year or so and I would be very interested in participating in this study if it is still open.
I just answered, wrote a long winded story about how and why Im on Warfarin, I then realised I didnt respond properly, I am very interested in participating in your study... I have in 11yrs involved in University of Pitt, Healthy Heart Study John Hancock
