Blood test


Recommended Posts

Carlton, my husband had that situation last week and was put on Heparin, to thin the blood. I gathered if it is to thick it can "clot" up more, I believe, I just know they treated him with Heparin and had to do draw blood every so many hours checking the PT rate, which has something to do with the clotting ability.. They want it thin but not to thinned out.. I hope that helps...
