  • Reasons to do INR self-testing
  • Which patients are suitable
  • What INR home monitoring devices are available
  • Whether the devices give reliable INR results
  • Whether insurance companies pay for them
  • How to get an instrument
  • What the health care professional may want to know
  • What the ACCP (American College of Chest Physicians) in its 2012 guidelines recommends regarding INR self- testing
  • References
