Off Topic - CoaguChek

Has anyone got any experience of CoaguChek self INR monitoring?

My Haematologist suggested one but now can't provide it because they are not commissioned to provide them for the area where I live.  I could buy one but they are over £500 plus expensive consumables.  Just wondering if the cost is outweighed by the convenience.  If I only need occasional testing then probably not but I thought I'd ask  

Thanks in advance

Neil

There's a lot of different ways of managing the monitoring and dosing... where the specimen is collected, where it's analysed, and who or what does the calculations.

It's possible to achieve good control with all of them.

What are they offering, and how how do you feel about it?

Hi Jonathan, Thanks for responding. I can't see the PM facility. Is there an alternative such as an email I can use?  Thanks, Neil
