Puzzled by the vast amount of medication interacting with platelet function and coagulation? When do they have to be paused for surgery or anesthesia ? is it safe to stop antithrombotic agents ? Does oral anticoagulation need 'bridging' ?

- Oral anticoagulants
- Heparin
- Low molecular weight heparin

Fantastic for pharmacy students

I got this app for my upcoming rotation at an anticoagulation clinic and I anticipate it will be very helpful. All drugs can be organized by brand name or generic, it goes over classes, monitoring, bridging, and much more. I'm really impressed with both the information and organization of this app. You can even choose between various guidelines! I highly recommend it for medical professions.

Cannot Access Salient Information

The screen is divided down the middle left to right and the important information, what I purchased the app for, cannot be seen. I tried to contact the developer, but the email address was reported as bogus.
