Discussions that mention coumadin

High & Low Blood Pressure board

Yes indeed, Inq,

Very, high blood pressure can cause an arterial blowout ANYWHERE in the body. For 182 to do it it probably takes a weakened or injured artery. Silly statement from the doctor about "relieved through nose or brain"...to "relieve" a pressure that high, she'd have to nearly bleed to death. Do they REALLY think they have to talk to patients like they were 6 years old?

I had an uncle who had yards and yards of gauze jammed into his nose a week to staunch a blood flow like that.

Beware high dose aspirin and worst of all Plavix, heparin and coumadin.
