What does an INR of 0.9 mean?
Regarding this, what is the normal range of INR?
In healthy people an INR of 1.1 or below is considered normal. An INR range of 2.0 to 3.0 is generally an effective therapeutic range for people taking warfarin for disorders such as atrial fibrillation or a blood clot in the leg or lung.
Likewise, what does an INR of 1 mean? INR stands for International Normalized Ratio. First, an individual whose blood clots normally and who is not on anticoagulation should have an INR of approximately 1. The higher your INR is, the longer it takes your blood to clot.
Keeping this in consideration, what is a dangerous INR level?
If an INR score is too low, a patient can be at risk for a blood clot. However, if the INR is too high, patients could also experience bleeding. A typical INR score ranges between 2 to 3. The “ideal” INR score can vary from patient to patient.
What can happen if INR is too high?
The higher your PT or INR, the longer your blood takes to clot. An elevated PT or INR means your blood is taking longer to clot than your healthcare provider believes is healthy for you. When your PT or INR is too high, you have an increased risk of bleeding.
