A case that changed my practice - a near miss with warfarin

Comment

Yes but my understanding is that we can reverse the effects of Warfarin with vitamin K but this is not the case with factor Xa inhibitors. Time will tell how safety profiles compare. Cost wise Warfarin comes out at about 12p per day versus £2.50. Compliance wise we are looking at twice daily dosage versus daily.
