I've been messing up many questions because of this. Can anybody explain this for me in simple language.

What is the target INR in different diseases?

Is it 2.0 to 3.0 or 2.5 to 3.5?

Googled the topic and could not find a reliable resource :(

Thanks in advance

Preferable INR is always 2 to 3 .... in UW and Kaplan notes ....
But i got a ques in kaplan Qbank ... they said it can be upto 3.5 in upper limit ... as in our body normal INR is 1 .... so it should be maintain in a double rate then our body INR ..... so it should always atleast 2 ... so u can range it any INR from 2 to 3.5 .... So if ur range says 1.5 to 2.5 .... its wrong cause it always start from atleast 2 .... and if ur ques says 3 to 4 .... always wrong cause ur INR should be with in 3.5 ......
