Understanding Best Care Practices for Hemorrhagic Stroke: A Focus on the Role of DOAC Reversals

Release Date: November 15, 2021
Expiration Date: November 15, 2022

Activity Overview

Increased risk of bleeding is a known complication of anticoagulation therapies, including direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs). Although DOACs demonstrated favorable safety and efficacy profiles in the absence of a specific reversal agent, situations such as overdose, serious bleeding, or the need for immediate surgery warranted a call to action to develop DOAC reversal agents. This call to action was answered, and there are now 2 FDA-approved DOAC reversal agents. Ongoing education about DOAC reversal is vital for clinicians involved in critical care. In this educational program, experts discuss the agents and best practices for the use of DOAC reversal in patients with intracranial hemorrhage.
