Target Audience

This program is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians involved in the management patients with life-threatening bleeds in the presence of an anticoagulant.

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Discuss the risk factors for DOAC-related bleeding, as well as the appropriate diagnosis and monitoring of a life-threatening bleed, along with the associated need for treatment with a reversal strategy, particularly for ICHs
  • Identify the appropriate diagnostic approaches to upper and lower GI bleeding, describe the essential treatment and specialist interventions, and implement treatment
  • Review the clinical applications and recommendations associated with repletion and reversal agents for DOACs, based on an understanding of the mechanism of action, benefits, risks, dosing, monitoring, and management of these agents including anti-vitamin K therapies such as coumadin, or specific direct treatments such as Factor Xa or Factor IIa anticoagulants, and describe their application to clinical practice in the management of life-threatening bleeding
