Thrombin Inhibitors (Includes Angiomax) ↔ Active Bleeding

Severe Potential Hazard, High plausibility

Applies to: Bleeding, Coagulation Defect

The use of thrombin inhibitors is contraindicated in the presence of active major bleeding. Additionally, these drugs should be used with caution in patients with disease states associated with an increased risk of bleeding.

Moderate

Bivalirudin (Includes Angiomax) ↔ Renal Impairment

Moderate Potential Hazard, Moderate plausibility

Applies to: Renal Dysfunction
