Response to aspirin therapy is determined using arachidonic acid as the test reagent; response to P2Y12 inhibitor treatment is determined using ADP as the test reagent; and response to GP IIb/ IIIa inhibitor treatment (abciximab, tiroﬁban, eptiﬁbatide) is determined using TRAP as the test reagent. Heparins The PTT has long been the standard method for monitoring heparin therapy. It is important that platelets in the blood specimen are not activated since released PF4 will inactivate heparin. A heparin therapeutic range is established by the local laboratory.
Adverse Effects Reversal As with other forms of anticoagulation, major bleeding is the most serious side-effect of DTIs. The RE-LY study  evaluated over 18,000 patients to assess the effects of Dabigatran compared to warfarin in patients with atrial ﬁbrillation (AF) with the authors assessing stroke, systemic embolism, and hemorrhage rates at an average follow-up of 2 years. The rate of ICH There is no speciﬁc reversal agent for DTIs and evidence-based recommendations for other methods are lacking.
Ibrahim et al. ability is dependent on synthesis of enzymes by the liver. This is often given in conjunction with other reversal agents listed below to prevent a rebound of anticoagulation. (b) Route: Oral or IV administration (the latter is more effective) (c) Time to maximum effect: New synthesis begins in 1–3 h and maximum effect is reached after 24–36 h. (d) Half-life: Effect lasts until INR within therapeutic range again (e) Benefits: Relatively safe (f) Risks: Reversal is slow hence utility in emergent situations is very limited 2.
