Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a valuable book summarizing the current thought on anticoagulation. In keeping with its premise, it does not cover much of the outpatient realm. This is a significant addition to the knowledge bank for inpatient care." (Doody's, 9 March 2012)
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: From the Society of Hospital Medicine, this is a complete book on the various indications, dosing, and rationales for anticoagulant usage in the acute care inpatient setting.
Purpose: The field of anticoagulation has dramatically changed over the last few years and this book reviews the literature to come to relevant conclusions about how the evidence has changed inpatient medical care. This is most necessary as a number of concepts have been updated at the same time many new medicines have been introduced. This book puts it all into perspective in terms of documentable outcomes. The contributors are experienced and highly regarded clinicians.
Audience: The audience includes every clinician who practices hospital-based care as well as primary care providers who are counseling their patients before and after their admission to the hospital.
Features: Each chapter focuses on a single aspect — pharmacology, antiplatelet medicines as a class, newer oral anticoagulants, etc. — and then moves on to specific indications such as prevention of venous thromboembolism, interoperative considerations, and acute coronary syndromes. The references are current and comprehensive. The tables and graphs are intuitive for those with a modicum of medical knowledge.
Assessment: This is a valuable book summarizing the current thought on anticoagulation. In keeping with its premise, it does not cover much of the outpatient realm. This is a significant addition to the knowledge bank for inpatient care.
