Purpose of the meeting
The purpose of this meeting was to discuss the emergency management of patients receiving oral anticoagulants, the current anticoagulation reversal options available and how the landscape will be changing in the near future.
The intended audience included cardiologists, GPs, nurses, surgeons, anaesthesiologists, emergency physicians and any other healthcare professional with an interest or role in the management of anticoagulation reversal.
By the end of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognise the factors that affect the choice and dose of oral anticoagulants
- Describe management options for patients presenting to emergency departments while receiving (or suspected to be receiving) NOACs
- Recall the different types of anticoagulant reversal agents currently available and the appropriate situations for their use in the UK & Europe
- Summarise recent developments in NOAC reversal and the relevant clinical applications
