This text provides a comprehensive guide to anticoagulation in the hospital setting. Designed specifically for use by hospital-based clinicians and associated hospital-based staff (nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants), the book addresses the most commonly used anticoagulant agents and primary indications for their use. In addition, this evidence-based book carefully reviews the epidemiology and treatment of complications associated with anticoagulants, addresses the use of anticoagulants in special populations, discusses new advances in anticoagulation, and finally, discusses how to develop programs related to improving the administration and safety of anticoagulants.
