Points and Pearls Excerpt

  • DOACs offer potential benefits over warfarin and other oral anticoagulants, including less need for monitoring and dietary restrictions, as well as the potential for reduced bleeding complications.
  • Dabigatran works by direct thrombin inhibition; rivaroxaban, apixaban, edoxaban, and betrixaban all work by factor Xa inhibition.
  • DOACs have a much shorter half-life than warfarin.
  • Prehospital care providers should ask patients about their use of anticoagulants, including the name of the drug, the dose, and the time the last dose was taken.
