“This is an excellent resource and a much-needed addition to the armamentarium of anticoagulation therapy. As someone who has been managing anticoagulation for close to a decade, I find myself referring to this book…when I need to retrieve information quickly.”
(Michael C Barros, PharmD, BCPS, BCACP, BC-ADM, Doody's Review Service, 2019)
Although highly effective in preventing thromboembolic events, the safe management of anticoagulant therapy continues to be a major challenge, requiring constant monitoring and coordinated models of patient-centered care.

New in This Edition:
• Extensive new information on direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs)
• Expanded information on anticoagulant reversal and expanded use of prothrombin complex concentrates
• New chapters on the use of anticoagulants in special patient populations, the use of anticoagulants in patients with mechanical devices, anticoagulation care delivery standards, regulatory issues, and more
• Four new appendices on the effect of DOACs on chemotherapy, nutritional influences, types of central nervous system hemorrhage, and use of anticoagulation in patients with coagulopathies
