After suffering a stroke, if the only available treatment is IV heparin how long can it take to show results? We are just past 72 hour mark.
Sounds odd: Why do say that the only AVAILABLE treatment for this person's stroke is IV Heparin? Why is TPA (alteplase) not available? In 2013 updated guidelines for the use of heparin were released to be used in specific circumstances of acute stroke but by and large TPA (alteplase) is the drug of choice and patients should always be able to at least get to a TPA (alteplase) center, "drip and ship." as we call it in the business. ...Read more
Hi, Other than doing flushing n adding heparin solutions to the dextrose bag, is there any other treatment for fibrin for capd? Tq
Oral administration.: Warfarin is available in an oral dose and is given on a daily basis. Its effects lasts 24 hours and takes about 72 hours to clear from your system. Heparin is given either intravenously or subcutaneously and requires dosing every 4 to 8 hours or continuously depending on the method of administration. Long term anticoagulation is easier and better tolerated with an oral medication. ...Read more
Smart port would not give a blood return. She put heparin in it. Still didn't work, for my treatment. Was about to use a vein in my arm. What shoulddo?
Portacath infusaport: I would suggest that you have the nurse attempt the use of cathflo, also known as tissue plasminogen activator. Often the ports stop working due to some small clots inside the port, and this medication often dissolves the clot & allows the port to start working again. If this does not solve the problem, then get a venogram through the port to trouble shoot the problem. . . Usually it can be fixed. ...Read more

How do doctors determine when to use warfarin, heparin, or aspirin for the treatment of Antiphospholipid syndrome? And how long it should be?
Number of choices: A website which lists some of these is http://www. Med. Umich. Edu/1libr/aha/umherb04.Htm keep in mind however, that anticoagulant therapy must be monitored very carefully and should not be done without medical supervision. Also keep in mind that if it is being done during pregnancy, the medication or herb must be proven safe for the fetus. Just because it's 'natural' doesn't make it safe. ...Read more
I wouldn't try it: If you or someone you know is taking heparin, they require very accurate management of their coagulability (ability to make clots). It really requires the exact doses that manufactured pharmaceuticals posses with all of the fda mandated quality assurance that that entails. ...Read more
Do the bladder instillation treatments of heparin, bicarbinate of soda, and lidocane help bladder inflamation?
Anticoagulation: If you have thrombophlebitis (deep venous thrombosis), the treatment is anticoagulation. This involves an infusion of Heparin or injections of a heparinoid like Lovenox (enoxaparin) initially for about 4 to 7 days, with long term treatment with warfarin (coumadin). The duration of treatment depends on the extent of the thrombosis and other coexisting issues. A vascular surgery consultation is indicated. ...Read more
This is a myth: There is a lot of misinformation about Heparin and Lovenox (enoxaparin) out there. These are injectable blood thinners that can be helpful for women with recurrent miscarriage due to anti phospholipid syndrome - a type of lupus. It is currently not recommended for infertility or for recurrent miscarriage unless you have anti phospholipid syndrome. This is a new acog recommendation just this year. ...Read more

Two pathway measures:
The PT can be with VERY HIGH doses of heparin but generally remember our coagulation system has two primary enzymatic pathways measured differently in the lab
1. Intrinsic system :measured by aPTT (activatted partial thromboplastin time) and prolonged by heparin and
2. Extrinsic system: measured by PT (prothrombin time) and prolonged by coumadin (warfarin).They then converge at the final common pathway. ...Read more
Yes: A blood thinner like Heparin is required to treat some conditions like blood clots, which can be life-threatening. It can increase bleeding so it is very important that women with these conditions see an expert (eg, perinatologist or hematologist), have an accurate diagnosis and discussion of risks and benefits of anticoagulation to mom & baby, have monitoring of their condition through pregnancy. ...Read more
