Drugs Affecting Haemostasis

  • G. M. Woerlee
Part of the Developments in Critical Care Medicine and Anesthesiology book series (DCCA, volume 18)


Many drugs used in clinical practice are capable of inducing a haemostatic defect During the preoperative visit the anaesthetist should always consider the possibility of this when asking what medication any patient is receiving. There are a number of processes by which drugs may induce a haemostatic defect


Acetylsalicylic Acid Bleeding Time Sodium Salicylate Bone Marrow Depression Drug Induce
