Full-Dose Blood Thinners Improve Outcomes for Hospitalized COVID-19 Patients

Full-dose blood thinners decreased need for life support and improved outcome in hospitalized COVID-19 patientsIn large clinical trial conducted worldwide, full dose anti-coagulation (blood thinner) treatments given to moderately ill patients hospitalized for COVID-19 reduced the requirement of vital organ support—such as the need for ventilation. With large numbers of COVID-19 patients requiring hospitalization, these outcomes could also help reduce the overload on intensive care units around the world. Whether providing increased doses of blood thinners routinely administered to hospitalized patients would be safe and effective was unknown at that time. Moderately ill patients are those not in intensive care and who did not receive organ support such as mechanical ventilation at trial enrollment. However, research questions remain about how to further improve the clinical care of COVID-19 patients.
