Protamine sulfate titration for heparin activity in neonates with indwelling umbilical catheters

The Journal of Pediatrics
R T HallW J Braun

Abstract

A rapid, simple, semimicro method for neutralization of heparin effect by titration with protamine sulfate is described. Protamine sulfate can be effectively employed to eliminate the effect of heparin on the APTT. Determination of true abnormalities of coagulation has important prognostic and therapeutic implications for the sick newborn infant.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
