Summary

Successful anticoagulation is a fine balance between clotting and bleeding, which can easily go wrong. The good news is that basic principles can help manage this scenario effectively. The author provides background information on low molecular weight heparins, their use in the treatment and prevention of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, its monitoring and reversal, and dose adjustment for body weight and renal function.
