What is a ternary complex? Thrombin and antithrombin wrapped up with UFH
Route of UFH IV or subQ… usually IV
Pharmacokinetic of UFH IV or subQ, unpredictable anticoag effect, monitor aPTT
Pharmoacokinetic of LMWH subQ (usually) or IV, predictable, no monitoring needed. Can be used at home
Why I LMWH better than Heparin? predicable. Can be used at home. No monitoring needed. Lower chance of HIT.
Where is heparin metabolized? liver and reticuloendothelial system
Rate of clearance of UFH dose dependant
How I LMWH eliminated? renal elimination
Rate of clearance of LMWH? independent clearance
Which has a longer half life between UFH and LMWH? LMWH (4.5 h)
Heparin clinical use PE, DVT, postop venous thrombosis, arterial embolism, sTEMI, UA, NsTEMI, PCI
What anti coag used in sTEMI? heparin
Heparin Adverse reactions HIT and bleeding
Why does HIT occur? Heparin binds to PF4 and cause Thrombocytopenia
What happens to platelet count with HIT type 2? Decreased (used up platelets)
What is the predominant clinical presentation with HIT type 2? Clots
HIT tx Heparin must be stopped. Put on Direct Thrombin inhibitors
should you give enoxaparin to a patient who has HIT? NO
Heparin antidote protamine sulfate

Fondaparinux adverse effects bleeding, thrombocytopenia and renal impairment
Thrombin Inhibitors -irudin
Thrombin Inhibitor MoA directly bind to and inhibit thrombin. Independent of anti-thrombin. Inhibits free and fibrin bound
What is the difference between lepirudin and heparin? Lepirudin I direct thrombin inhibitor and inhibits soluble and clot bound thrombin. Heparin requires anti-thrombin and only inhibitssoluble thrombin
How I rudins administered?: IV
Clinical use of thrombin inhibitors HIT and HIT undergoing PCI
Drug of choice for PCI Bivalirudin
Adverse reaction Thrombin Inhibitors bleeding and allergic reaction (Lepirudin)
Oral Anticoagulant warfarin
Warfarin MoA Vitamin K antagonist. Inhibits synthesis of vit K dependent clotting factor in liver (II, VII, IX and X) and synthesis of protein C and s.
How does warfarin inhibit vit K? Reduces KO to KH2 by KO reductase. Warfarin inhibits vit KO reductase. Prevents carboxylation of vit K dependant coagulation factors.
When do you start warfarin? in conjunction with heparin
How do you monitor warfarin? PT time (INR)
Where is warfarin metabolized? metabolized in liver and most I bound to albumin
Clinical use of warfarin chronic a fib prosthetic heart valve, people at risk following surgery, trauma or cancer. DVT or PE. sTEMI
How would you use heparin and warfarin to anticoag a person who develops a DVT? same time
A patient is scheduled for an angioplasty. What anticoagulant may be administered just prior to the procedure? heparin and thrombin inhibitor
Warfarin adverse effects bleeding and skin necrosis
What causes skin necrosis with Warfarin? reduced activity of protein C causing hyper coaguable state
What is protein C? endogenous anti coagulant.
When is warfarin the most teratogenic? first trimester. syndrome characterized by nasal hypoplasia and stippled epiphyseal calcifications that resemble chondrodysplasia punctata
What happens with warfarin in 2nd and 3rd trimester? CNs abnormalities and fetal or neonatal hemorrhage. Much less common than first trimester exposure
What drugs are used in HIT? Thrombin inhibitor
What determines the response to heparin dosages? diet, compliance, liver function, thyroid function, genetics, drugs and herbals
What is narrow therapeutic index of warfarin? narrow
Antidote for warfarin vitamin K1 and fresh frozen plasma or prothrombin complex concentrate
What are the antiplatelet agents? cyclooxygenase inhibitors, ADP receptor antagonist, glycoprotein IIb/IIIa receptor antagonists and PDE inhibitors
What is a cyclooxygenase inhibitor? AsA
Aspirin MoA irreversibly inhibits cyclooxygenase. COX-1 more than COX-2. Block production of TxA2 (platelet)
COX-1 convert prostaglandin H2 to? TxA2 (vasoconstrictor. Promotes platelet aggregation
Do you want to inhibit the production of PGI2 or TxA? TxA2 becuae PGI2 inhibits platelet aggregation
Why I cyclooxygenase inhibited for only a short time in endothelial cells and forever in the platelet? endothelial cells make new enzyme while platelets can’t make any more
Why do other NsAIDs not work in platelet inhibition? reversibly inhibits PGI2 AND TxA2
Clinical use of Aspirin sTEMI and NsTEMI and UA. PCI. Embolic stroke
What is dose of aspirin? 81 mg
Aspirin adverse effect GI irritation and bleeding becaue it inhibit the synthesis of prostaglandins that promote secretion of bicarb and mucous

DNA synthesis I affected by what deficiency Folic acid and B12
Myelin sheath of neuron I affected by what deficiency? B12
Why are RBC very large with a B12 deficiency? no DNA synthesis
B12 deficiency Tx cyanocobalamin or hydroxocoboalmin IM, deep ubQ or intranasal
