Weigh VTE Prevention Strategies in COVID-19
Clinicians are scrambling to optimize venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis for hospitalized patients with COVID-19.
Data suggest these patients have a higher VTE risk than other hospitalized patients. Plus D-dimer and other markers are often elevated in COVID-19...especially in severe cases.
But there's little evidence about optimal VTE prophylaxis in patients with COVID-19. Rely on a practical approach.
