  • Awsome job!! Thank you sooo much. I'm just getting started with Excelsior I'm in the of studying for my NC 1 but I have also been reading other material for 3&4...I'm going to try and save this for later us. We this still be available or is there a way I can purchase this can email me at

    Thank you, Gr8RN2B

    84. 86. Heparin Recall in 2008 <ul><li>In February 2008 , the FDA issued a MedWatch in response to an increase in the number of serious adverse events including allergic or hypersensitivity-type reactions with the administration of higher bolus doses of heparin. The reports have mainly involved the use of Baxter multiple-dose vials ; however, there have been reports of these reactions occurring when the combination of multiple- and single-dose vials have been used to administer a bolus dose. In February 2008, Baxter International announced expanding their voluntary recall to include all lots and doses of its Heparin Sodium UPS multi-dose, single-dose vials, and HEP-LOCK heparin flush products . The company initially recalled nine lots of heparin sodium injection multi-dose vials as a precautionary measure due to a higher than usual number of reports of adverse patient reactions involving the product. In March 2008, the FDA announced that the contaminant found in samples of Baxter's heparin was oversulfated chondroitin sulfate, a substance derived from animal cartilage. The FDA also stated that it does not know whether this contaminant caused the adverse events, only that a contaminant has been identified . Investigations continue as to whether this contaminant was added to heparin by accident or intentionally. Customers with questions regarding the Baxter recall may contact the Center for One Baxter at 1-800-422-9837. </li></ul>

Risk factors for bleeding include high intensity of anticoagulation (INR of more than 4), 65 years of age and older, highly variable INRs, history of GI bleeding, hypertension, cerebrovascular disease, serious heart disease, anemia, malignancy, trauma, renal function impairment, concomitant drugs, and long duration of warfarin therapy. Regular monitoring of INR should be performed on all treated patients . Those at high risk of bleeding may benefit from more frequent INR monitoring, careful dose adjustment to desired INR, and a shorter duration of therapy.
