    Never ending INR issues- warning LONG post

    to be honest I'm pretty sure he doesn't either ... its just consistent with his approach of being "prickly" but only to me. I've already shown over years that I consistently say what I think and don't hide it.

    Never ending INR issues- warning LONG post

    in furtherance to my other post in your other thread I submit this (well known pharmacokinetic) information (it is as you say an old source because it was "done and dusted" decades ago): From MIMS (we have a subscription here at the Uni) if you are unfamiliar with MIMS...

    St Jude Valves

    Thanks for your long answer however... agreed, its well documented in MIMS and is what I said it is: The R enantiomer has longer half life (about double) and the S is more active. I would be very interested to see any evidence that the drug companies are required to put exact amount of the...

    Never ending INR issues- warning LONG post

    You have an active imagination. If you don't know or understand the Muppet show I'm sorry. Those guys are famous not for what you imagine I've said. Indeed calling me a class act is just hiding behind semantics when you are insinuating quite negative things. At least I'm up front. But no...

    Alcohol pads yes or no

    and as almost nothing is "sterile clean" you'd be back to just washing it ;-)

    Alcohol pads yes or no

    but if anyone does, please video it and put it on youtube. Qn ... in order to close the pressure door would you detach the hand first or just use a full body autoclave?

    News video on TAVR

    myself I never forget that (although I did understand you meant the 3rd person infinitive collective we), being one of the early valve replacements done in Australia when I was 10 (1974 IIRC). I recall well all the pre-op stuff I did. I even had to be shown how to breath on a ventilator because...

    so why don't you lay on us the "proper information" and "good advice" instead of just slinging negative comments from the balcony? Perhaps even clear up some of those "poor advices" and "misinformations"

    Own v. Rent INR Machine?

    That's a good price, and seems a lot cheaper than new. Sometimes it's not worth saving 20% of the price to get one which does not look perfectly presented and actually "as new" especially when you are going to then be using it over years and it just therefore keeps getting cheaper (amortized per...

    FDA approves TAVR for more than high risk patients

    the usual basis for concerns of warfarin not that there are none, but that's usual one.

    FDA approves TAVR for more than high risk patients

    I'm glad you're in touch with him ... please pass on my regards and mention that (for what it is worth) he put in a stalwart effort here for many moons. [hats off]

    Own v. Rent INR Machine?

    I suggest its evidence not proof but more evidence that when you buy a used one you should: make sure you have the sort of buyer protection ebay/paypal affords do due dilligence such as inspecting it closely for such defects as "it won't turn on with fresh batteries" assuming you get to here...

    FDA approves TAVR for more than high risk patients

    well sort of, if you also factor in higher stroke and leak issues, but yes it will be interesting to see durability. I wonder how CoryP is doing?

    it will be interesting to see this technology unfold

    Strep LOL, anywhere oral, but not from your lancing. Just provides support to my (already dim) view of the average Doctors grasp of microbial epidemiology...

    Alcohol pads yes or no

    indeed I was told by Roche not to use them in case there was contamination from the swab (now that you mention that it reminded me)
