INR

Roche CoaguChek XS

INR1 INR2

Located in Anti-Coagulation Clinic, Endoscopy, Ward 35, Manchester Royal Infirmary, Gorton Parks Intermediate Care Home and Withington Cataract Centre.

The Roche CoaguChek XS Pro Plus devices are used to monitor INR levels in patients who are taking warfarin. It is important for a patient to be prescribed sufficient warfarin to stop blood clots forming but equally important to ensure that too much warfarin is not prescribed which could lead to excessive bleeding.

A quality control test is performed on the devices every day before they are used for patient testing. The meters are also registered in a national external quality assurance scheme.

CoauChek XS operators take part in proficiency testing to evidence their continued competency in using the devices.
