Heparin Drip Monitoring Change: Anti-Xa Levels

SRMC Go Live – July 1

Heparin Protocol Change

What are the differences?

  • Anti-Xa used for monitoring unfractionated heparin instead of aPTT. (aPTT still available for coagulation testing.)
  • Infusion Pump Library will be set to units/kg/hr
  • Protocols will be updated to match the change
    • Two Protocols:
      • DVT/PE, Systemic Anticoagulation (Non-cardiac)
      • Acute Coronary Syndrome, Low Dose Indications
