Various healthcare activities related to hemotherapy and hemostasis are carried out within the Day Hospital:

Antithrombotic treatment

  • Control, handling, and care in referred emergency consultations for patients receiving oral anticoagulant therapy
  • Initiation of drug therapy
  • Temporary discontinuation of anticoagulation therapy, and short-term replacement of oral anticoagulation with parenteral anticoagulation
  • Intercurrent events that modify antithrombotic drug requirements

Hemophilia and severe bleeding diathesis
