Avoid heparin: If a lab has confirmed HIT with a serotonin release assay, then that person should *not* receive a heparin product ever again, particularly not within 100 days of exposure. Some non heparin anticoagulants that could be considered include bivalirudin, argatroban, dabigatran, desirudin, or danaparoid.
