Neuraxial Coagulation Guide is the simplest coagulation profiling app for regional anesthesia and has been updated for 2017. Simple, to the point and VERY fast. Use this app to review current ASRA guidelines when you immediately need to know if you are able to perform a spinal, epidural, catheter placement or peripheral regional nerve block. These are the coagulation guidelines to help prevent neuraxial hematomas after injections and peripheral nerve procedures. All you need to do is select the person's anticoagulant, thrombolytic, thrombin inhibitor, herbal, or antiplatelet medicationfrom the list. The app will give you the facts to consider if the procedure is to take place prior, during or after the patient takes the medication. In addition, you receive important consideration points and mechanism of action to help tailor your decision process all on one page.
Information includes heparins, LMWH, fibrinolytics, GPIIb/IIIa inhibitors, antiplatelet, anticoagulants and herbals.
Guidelines are based on ASRA in Reg Anesth Pain and Horlocher TT et al. 4th ASRA Practice Advisory for Regional Anesthesia in the Patient Receiving Antithrombotic or Thrombolytic Therapy.
