Warfarin Coumadin aka Blood thinners and Climbing 8-Sep-2010 At 12:33:18 PM DaCrux
I think people are obsessed with being on warfarin for a good reason. We get dozens of people with therapeutic warfarin levels each year who need brain surgery after bumping their heads on cupboards etc. Iíd get some gradient compression stockings, always make sure you wear a helmet when climbing, and stick to well protected climbs Ė but thatís just my opinion. I donít know your particular situation, medical history etc. Superficial cuts and small bruises arenít normally an issue Ė but if you do have a major injury e.g. break your leg you may need blood products to reverse the effects of warfarin, and your surgery may need to be delayed whilst they lower your INR. These are all things you need to consider.

Climbingjac Ė people still die from clots located below the knee if they break off. Itís not a nice way to go...
