PHARMACOKINETICS Warfarin is administered as a racemic drug. The S -enantiomer accounts for the anticoagulation effect of warfarin mainly because it is 3–5 times more potent than the R-enantiomer (Fig. 1) [8]. Warfarin is well absorbed, and its blood concentration peaks within 4 h after oral administration. 14 L/kg). This small volume of distribution is due in part to warfarin’s high protein binding (99%). 2.

Some prefilled syringes have automatic safety mechanisms to prevent inadvertent needle sticks. Each product should be reviewed to determine the correct technique for deploying the needle guard. Injection sites should be alternated between right and left sides. In order to minimize bruising, the injection site should not be rubbed following drug administration. 9. CONCLUSION A sound understanding of the basic pharmacology of parenteral anticoagulants is necessary in order to facilitate the safe and effective clinical use of these agents.

Nonlinear relationship between INR and blood reserve of coagulation factors. 0. At an elevated INR, however, a small change in the reserve results in a significant INR change. 1. Factors Influencing Warfarin Dose Variability Age. Age is inversely related to warfarin dose. 001 [16]. In addition, age is a predictor of warfarin dose in many warfarin-dosing algorithms [17,18]. Aging may change both the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of warfarin. Warfarin clearance may be decreased by 1% with each 1-year increment in age [19].
