Anticoagulation therapy is an area of high impacts for pharmacists. Anticoagulants (blood thinners) require constant monitoring for renal function, pharmacokinetics, and interactions with other medicines. In some ways, these drugs can be considered a double-edged sword – while they save thousands of lives by preventing and treating strokes, pulmonary embolisms and DVTs, misuse can lead to complications ranging from worrisome to catastrophic. So it is essential that all pharmacists understand the benefits and risks associated with these high-risk medications. Anticoagulation Therapy has become the go-to resource for pharmacists who treat and manage the millions of patients on anticoagulants in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The second edition of this quick reference will continue with its heavy reliance on tables and bulleted lists. The second edition will feature new chapters on mechanical devices and considerations in special populations. The pioneering chapter on anticoagulation reversal will be divided into two chapters with one focusing on agents and one on patient considerations. Also new for this edition: 5 new chapters, 2 new appendixes, 3 updated appendixes
