Through the Roof
- Hematopathologist: So what are the problems that you can see in this patient's blood work?
- Student: It looks like the INR is through the roof. (Blood work = 2.1; N = 0.8-1.2)
- Hematopathologist: Um...yes, it is elevated but I would not really call it 'through the roof.' When I think 'through the roof' I think an INR of say, 20. That would be through the roof. I would say that the INR is on the second floor.
