Bleeding Risks of Anticoagulants

As with all therapies, there are sometimes serious side effects. When treating with anticoagulation therapy, monitoring is essential to ensure that the anticoagulant effects are not detrimental to patients' health. Risk of haemorrhage is likely if there is a high level of anticoagulant within the blood stream. It is all about creating a fine pharmacokinetic balance, however if the patient is in danger of haemorrhage there are oral anticoagulation reversal treatments that should be administered urgently.
