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. This concise reference is designed with the busy clinician and resident in mind. It provides a quick way to access necessary clinical and therapeutic information that has the potential to improve the lives when many risk factors are at play and time is of the essence. Inside you’ll find: Quick reference elements such as tables figures to easily access key information Clinical pearls and bullets to highlight real life application Selected guideline statements from leading organizations 19 chapters covering a broad range of topics The second book in the Point-of-Care series, Anticoagulation Therapy is led by a team of editors with more than 77 combined years of clinical experience, including insight from 19 contributors. The book is divided into three sections, including: Anticoagulation Medication Management, Conditions Requiring Anticoagulation Therapy, and Practical Monitoring and Coagulation Laboratory Insights.

This book presents the latest evidence and guidelines supporting the use of anticoagulant therapy for various clinical scenarios. The field of anticoagulation therapy is evolving rapidly, particularly since the arrival and widespread adoption of direct oral anticoagulants. Organized in two parts, this book reviews the pharmacologic properties of various anticoagulants and details the clinical applications of anticoagulant therapy. Drugs such as warfarin and unfractionated heparin, as well as parenteral and direct oral anticoagulants are discussed in terms of their pharmacokinetics, drug-disease interactions, dosing strategies, and risk considerations. Clinical applications of anticoagulant therapy in disorders such as acute coronary syndromes, atrial fibrillation, and thrombophilia and in special populations such as pregnant women, the elderly, and in the patient with cancer are highlighted. Clinical vignettes, algorithms, clinical pearls, and self-assessment questions are integrated throughout the book. Featuring contributions from authorities in the field, Anticoagulation Therapy is an essential resource for cardiologists, vascular medicine specialists, hematologists, internists, and all other healthcare professionals who prescribe anticoagulants.

The available parenteral and oral anticoagulants have a large clinical use. Understanding biochemistry of anticoagulants may help to improve therapeutic strategies. Resistance to vitamin K antagonist drugs might be a problem for rodent populations. Patients who have thrombogenic risk factors should be anticoagulated. The need for cardiac implantable electronic devices is increasing, and there is a substantial number of patients who are on oral anticoagulant therapy. Prothrombin complex concentrate and other plasma concentrates are useful to deal with over-coagulated situations. The efficacy and safety of non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants have been proven in large phase III trials. The real-world data suggest even better outcomes with these agents compared to vitamin K antagonists.

Given the amount and complexity of information surrounding the the target specific oral anticoagulants a lengthy didactic educational format has the potential to be overwhelming to the reader and difficult to translate and apply to direct patient care. The proposed book will educate clinicians utilizing a series of clinical cases to simultaneously develop the readers’ knowledge base, problem-solving skills, and practically apply their new knowledge to a variety of clinical situations. These will be short focused case presentations that provide critical information and pose questions to the reader at key points in the decision making process. The cases will be relevant to what clinicians will encounter not only on a daily basis, but also reflective of scenarios that clinicians will not encounter regularly, but that they will have to act upon (e.g. a bleeding patient, patient scheduled for elective or emergent procedure, patient with changing renal function, patient on drugs that have a plausible yet unstudied drug interaction with a target specific oral anticoagulant etc). Included in the case studies will be evidence-based discussions (with appropriate references) that provide immediate feedback on the different treatment alternatives that were offered. The case studies will be designed to instruct the reader how to select and effectively utilize the most appropriate agent for a given clinical scenario. They will focus on key features of the target specific oral anticoagulants, what they have in common, how they are unique from each other, as well as illustrating the clinical decision process one should take when selecting an agent or managing a patient already receiving one of the target specific oral agents. ​
