It's not for the tech to explain to the ordering doc that the patient needs anticoagulating--in fact, it's illegal, and possibly marginally illegal for the tech to make the call at all (though we certainly do). The tech's job is to give the preliminary result of the exam. It's not always possible to steer the ordering doc in what the tech might consider to be the right direction. So come on yourself.
