The first practical guide for hospitalists on the use of anticoagulants in hospitalized patients

This edited volume provides a comprehensive overview of the vital topic of anticoagulation in the hospital setting. Designed specifically for use by hospital-based clinicians and associated hospital-based staff, this fully evidence-based book addresses the most commonly used anticoagulant agents, the latest advances in anticoagulation drugs, and primary indications for their use at therapeutic levels.

This thorough, easy-to-use reference summarizes the most important guidelines and medical literature on anticoagulation. It features a careful review of the epidemiology and treatment of complications associated with anticoagulants. Unique topics include transition of care and practical strategies for developing and implementing quality improvement programs to enhance the administration and safety of anticoagulants.

This concise resource also covers:

  • Antiplatelet medications

  • The treatment and prevention of venous thromboembolism in medical patients

  • Venous thromboembolism prophylaxis in surgical patients
