How to Treat Anticoagulants?

Medical Treatment:
  • If a flow of blood is blocked by blood clot through the blood vessel, the affected part of the body will become starved of oxygen and will stop working properly.
  • Depending on where the clot forms, this can lead to serious problems such as:
    • Strokes or transient ischaemic attacks (mini-strokes)
    • Heart attacks
    • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
    • Pulmonary embolism
  • If you are at an increased risk of developing one of these problems, treatment with anticoagulants may be recommended.This may be because you have had blood clots in the past or you have been diagnosed with a condition such as atrial fibrillation that can cause blood clots to form.
  • If you have recently had surgery, you may also be prescribed an anticoagulant, as the rest period and inactivity you need during your recovery may increase your risk of developing a blood clot.
