DOAC Dosing in Special Situations – Renal Impairment, Liver Disease and Obesity – Lecture
In this Healthed lecture, Dr Ronald Castellino explains that inappropriate DOAC dosing is a common problem, leading to either increased risk of stroke or of iatrogenic bleeding. It’s important to recognise which patients require reduced dosage, such as those with impaired renal clearance, as well as those who are likely to be undertreated. Dr Ronald Castellino will describe the various scenarios in which over- and under-dosing might occur, and what GPs can do to optimise the dosage in view of the specific clinical characteristics of each patient.
