We get to know in which situations we can use these anticoagulants, how to deal with its costing so that it becomes cheap for the patients for their wide-use, and how to make people aware of these drugs at large. Further we also get to know how a 60 year old male patient with atrial fibrillation can be treated with newer coagulants like Dabigatran instead of Warfarin and Acitrom which is being used since ages and different roles of every drug to treat the patients. GPs and physicians should also be aware of all new anti-coagulants to treat patient in a more effective way.
