Heparin is the body's natural anticoagulant. There are two forms: normal Unfractionated Heparin [UFH](cheap) and Low Molecular Weight Heparin  [LMWH] (expensive).

  • "Compared to standard heparin, low molecular weight heparins have superior bioavailability, a longer half-life, and a dose-independent clearance, which results in a more predictable anticoagulant response"
  • LMWH is the preferred item for children
  •  

 

Benefits

  • Reduce thrombin-antithrombin complex
  • Increase in Protien C
  • Reduced endogenous thrombin potential (LMWH best)

Risks

  • Osteoporosis and thrombocytopenia with UFH ,
  • Osteoporosis and thrombocytopenia are rare LMWH
  • May increase fibrinogen
