Life happens every day, in different ways
Accidents, unexpected emergencies, and urgent surgeries can happen to anyone, including those who are taking oral anticoagulants for nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). View and experience life happening to patients with NVAF.
Fall in the Shower
Accidents such as falls have the potential to become more serious for individuals who are taking an anticoagulant.
Moments in Time/Stroke
Patients taking anticoagulants for NVAF may still be at risk for stroke. But an anticoagulant with a widely available, specific reversal agent may offer an important advantage to healthcare professionals at a critical time.
Moments in Time/Urgent Surgery
Medical emergencies can occur at any time, and the anticoagulant a healthcare provider chooses today may affect the course of medical care for his or her patients tomorrow.
Moments in Time/Bike Accident
When an accident happens, immediate reversal of a patient’s anticoagulant may have a significant impact on his or her course of care.
