Anticoagulation Clinic

The anticoagulation clinic helps to monitor patients who are prescribed medications such as warfarin, low-molecular weight heparin, and the novel anticoagulants (NOAC) such as Xarelto and Eliquis.

What are anticoagulants?

Anticoagulants are used to prevent and treat blood clots in patients who have mechanical heart valves or serious conditions such as atrial fibrillation, deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism. Serious bleeding complications can occur while taking anticoagulant medication. Careful monitoring is necessary in order to provide safe and effective treatment.
