Medgeeks Podcast: Excel in practice | Board Review | Medicine |


Dec 7, 2018

Last week, we reviewed the different types of anticoagulation medications. 

Today, I want to review what to do when things go bad aka what are the reversal agents.

There are 4 basic questions you should consider when thinking about anticoagulation reversal:

  1. Is the patient actively bleeding aka do I have to take action immediately?
  2. What anticoagulant is the patient on?
  3. When was their last dose?
  4. What doest the patient need the reversal for? i.e. life threatening bleed, emergent surgical procedure, etc.

Let's dive right in!
