BLOOPZ, RN

Hi and welcome to my tumblr! I'm a new registered nurse who recently passed the NCLEX. I post nursing material (notes, diagrams, etc) that I find helpful and useful to share with others. The photographs (food and nursing related) are mine unless otherwise stated. Feel free to 'Ask' me anything or want to just say 'Hi'! Thanks! :)

Warfarin sodium (Coumadin)
Clients who are receiving  anticoagulant therapy should consult the physician before undergoing any  dental work. The dentist should also be aware that the client is taking  anticoagulants. 
A soft toothbrush is desirable for oral hygiene if the  client is receiving anticoagulant therapy; it helps prevent the gums  from bleeding. 
Rectal suppositories are contraindicated during  anticoagulant therapy because their insertion may cause bleeding. 
Stool  softeners may be used instead to prevent straining, which also may  promote bleeding. 
Green leafy vegetables should not be eaten in excess  because of their vitamin K content, which may alter the effectiveness of  the anticoagulant therapy.
Antidote for Coumadin is Vitamin K
