Date:9/14/2009

age them effectively. Any patient on blood thinner therapy, regardless of the initial cause and or specific medical regimen, can benefit from the video.

The video features:

  • A patient on blood thinners and how he manages his medication regimen safely in everyday settings like work, home and leisure time
  • Simplified medical terminology and easy-to-understand language
  • Animated graphics showing how dangerous blood clots form and their consequences
  • Menu selections that allow patients to replay and review specific instructional segments

The video also introduces a mnemonic called B-E-S-T to help patients remember important parts of a treatment program they can follow to help keep them safe and healthy. B-E-S-T stands for Be careful, Eat right, Stick to a routine, and Test regularly. AHRQ is sharing the video with clinicians in primary care and cardiology practices, nurses responsible for hospital discharge planning, anticoagulation therapy clinics, and clinical pharmacists.

The video is available as a DVD and can be obtained from the AHRQ Publications Clearinghouse by calling 1-800-358-9295 or sending an e-mail to AHRQPubs@ahrq.hhs.gov. A companion bilingual print brochure, Blood Thinner Pills: Your Guide to Using Them Safely/Pastillas que diluyen la sangre: Guia para su uso seguro, is also available free of charge.
