About this book


This book provides a practical guide to the use of novel and conventional anticoagulants for a variety of medical conditions and patients profiled. It reviews data for selecting the most appropriate medication for a given presentation based on a patient’s background while highlighting current best practices. Chapters discuss the choice of agents and optimum duration of therapy while including the relevant literature review and evidence. Specific sections focus on the use of anticoagulants in patients with cardiovascular disease, autoimmune and rheumatologic disorders, antiphospholipid syndrome, cancer, and in the surgical contexts. The book also examines anticoagulation in pregnant and lactating women, pediatric and elderly populations, and patients with extreme weights. 

Intended for use in daily practice, Precision Anticoagulation Medicine - A Practical Guide is an essential resource for physicians and related professionals, residents, fellows, and graduate students in hematology, cardiology, rheumatology, oncology, surgery, anesthesiology, and intensive care.
