This application is for medical practitioners who need to quickly review which anticoagulant (including the newer oral anticoagulants (NOACs)) to use to prevent stroke in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). It contains relevant information about warfarin, apixaban, dabigatran and rivaroxaban. Topics covered include: comparison of anticoagulants, patient information, when anticoagulation is required, risk-benefit issues, when warfarin is appropriate, how to choose the dose of a NOAC, starting or switching between anticoagulants, clinical monitoring, bleeding risks, use of antiplatelet agents in addition to oral anticoagulants, managing ischemic strokes on NOACs, reversing anticoagulation in the event of intracerebral haemorrhage, and peri-operative management information. Information contained within the application was edited by Dr Bruce Campbell. Coding was by CereScape (www.cerescape.com). It is our aim to keep this information current, and we welcome constructive comments and evidenced updated information. Any profit generated by this application will be used to fund stroke research.
