Hematoma (cont.)

Hematoma Prevention

Accidents happen and most hematomas are inevitable.

For persons taking anti-coagulation medications, it is wise to avoid participating in events with high risk of injury. For patients taking warfarin (Coumadin), it is important to monitor the medication dosing on a regular basis to keep the blood thinned and the INR in the appropriate range for the disease being treated.
