Description

ASRA Coags 2.0 transforms the ASRA (American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine) Anticoagulation Guidelines into a quick and easy reference for your practice. It provides rapid access to drug-specific summary information.

This version combines both the 2018 Regional Anesthesia guidelines from the publication “Regional Anesthesia in the Patient Receiving Antithrombotic or Thrombolytic Therapy; American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine Evidence-Based Guidelines (Fourth Edition)” and the 2018 Interventional Pain guidelines from the publication “Interventional Spine and Pain Procedures in Patients on Antiplatelet and Anticoagulant Medications (Second Edition); Guidelines From the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, the European Society of Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Therapy, the American Academy of Pain Medicine, the International Neuromodulation Society, the North American Neuromodulation Society, and the World Institute of Pain.”
