    Depends on the individual circumstances. Is the patient going for a procedure or OR? What is the patient's medical history? Why is the patient's INR high -- on coumadin? something else going on with the patient?

    Patient is on Coumadin for DVT. INR was 8.8.

    Patient was given Vit K 10 mg SC. Coumadin is on hold, PT INR to be checked after 3 days.

    Ive been told that some MDs dont order Vit K unless there's already bleeding.
