NeuroBytes: Anticoagulation Reversal in Intracerebral Hemorrhage

NeuroBytes: Anticoagulation Reversal in Intracerebral Hemorrhage

Course Description

ICH comprises ~15% of strokes but is associated with high mortality and poor functional outcomes. Anticoagulation associated ICH is an increasing concern in an aging US population as the prevalence of atrial fibrillation is projected to rise to 15.9 million patients in 2050. Anticoagulation is associated with hemorrhage expansion and failure to correct coagulopathy is an independent predictor of morbidity and mortality. The aim of this video is to provide insight into reversal of heparin, direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs), and fibrinolytics.

Learning Objectives

As a result of this program the learner will be able to:
  • Describe the mechanism of common anticoagulation medications and the mechanism, indications, and dosing for their respective reversal agents.
