Anticoagulation Therapy William Dager, Michael Gulseth & Edith Nutescu read online review & book description:

Anticoagulants can be dangerous drugs. Developed to save lives by preventing and treating thrombosis, these widely used medications are linked to unacceptable levels of morbidity and mortality. According to a study by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices, 8.2% of hospitalized patients on warfarin and 13.6% exposed to heparin experience an adverse drug event. To prevent these events from occurring, clinicians monitor anticoagulation therapy closely. But there are still questions. What is the risk of stroke in a patient who has specified CHADS2 risk factors? What is the recommended perioperative treatment? Find life-saving solutions quickly to these challenges and more with Anticoagulation Therapy: A Point-of-Care Guide, edited by William Dager, Michael Gulseth, and Edith Nutescu.
