Brochure on Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT) now available

Posted |

A brochure on Heparin-Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT) is now available on the Clot Connect website.  Heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) is a serious side effect that can happen when being treated with heparin.  Heparin is a medication used to decrease clotting or "thin the blood".  Unfortunately, heparin can occasionally lead to low blood platelet counts and to life-threatening blood clots.

The HIT brochure is the first in a series of Clot Connect brochures in development. 

The brochure was made possible by an unrestricted educational grant from Canyon Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
