Be Prepared if Your Hospital Switches to the New Premixed Bivalirudin

You may see new premixed bivalirudin drips in your pharmacy.

This anticoagulant is used in the cath lab for heart attack patients...on patient care units for patients with heparin-induced thrombocytopenia...or in operating rooms for heart surgery patients.

Using premixes may be more convenient and safer than prepping drips from vials...since bivalirudin is needed STAT in some cases.
