Drug information

Managing bleeding
Bleeding is a potential problem with any anticoagulant and can be complex to manage. The Dabigatran App provides advice about which treatments to use for both minor and major bleeding.

Managing surgery
A common question with any anticoagulant is how long should treatment be stopped before surgery? The Dabigatran App calculates a safe interval between stopping treatment and surgery by including renal function and the time since the last dose. It also offers advice for treatment prior to emergency surgery if the surgery cannot be delayed.

Interpreting coagulation results
Dabigatran prolongs several coagulation tests. The Dabigatran App combines the results of these tests to give an indication of the dabigtran plasma concentration.
