Abstract

Anticoagulation has long complicated the care of hemorrhage in the emergency department and other acute care settings. With the advent of novel anticoagulants such as direct thrombin inhibitors and direct factor Xa inhibitors, the absence of any direct antidote for these medications presents new and difficult challenges in the management of hemorrhagic complications in these patients. We present 2 cases of patients with hemorrhagic complications taking novel oral anticoagulants, their management, and outcomes.
