Fibrinolytic and Antithrombotic Therapy

Theory, Practice, and Management

Second Edition

Richard C. Becker, M.D. and Frederick A. Spencer, M.D.

Thrombotic disorders of the circulatory system represent the leading cause of morbidity, mortality, and health care expenditure in the United States. The Second Edition of Fibrinolytic and Antithrombotic Therapy provides a practical, evidence-based approach to the managment of thrombotic disorders for all clinicians involved in the care of patients with these disorders. It provides not only vital conceptual information on fibrinolytic and antithrombotic therapy, but also the means to apply it to everyday decision making and patient care. Focusing on management guidelines and critical pathways, the text stresses practicality and usability. It will be a valuable resource for the wide range of clinicians involved in the care of patients with these disorders, including cardiologists, emergency physicians, primary care physicians, hematologists, neurologists, intensivists, pharmacists, and nurse practitioners.
