One comment. What is patient years?Thank you so much Pellicle! I will read this over a few times. What is incidents per 100 patient years? Looking at the first example I see that with an INR interval of 4.5-4.9 there were 106.7 patient years, 5 events ( like bleeds) and 4.7 incidence per 100 patient years. I don't understand patient years?
Can you explain that as an example so I can understand what it means?
Also I have the mechanical St Judes mitral valve since 2001. I use the Coagucheck Vantus (model Roche sent me when I signed up last April) now it is Bio Tel because Roche sold it to them.
I am having stomach problems and not drinking any wine and eating less so I am sure it may be different next time I check. I have an appointment with the gastroenterologist. Thank you for your help every time. I really appreciate it.
