Warfarin Guide offers three resources essential for systematic and careful evidence-based anticoagulation with Warfarin. First it reviews the latest recommendations on indications, INR targets, and treatment duration from the American College of Chest Physicians 8th Edition guidelines on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy from 2008, updated for the 2012 guideline. Second it offers a protocol for Warfarin dose adjustment depending upon INR result. And third is a discussion of protocols for the initiation of Warfarin.
