5. If you have clotting issues such as Leiden factor 5...

Which can cause clotting problems resulting in DVT then you would be on a drug like warfarin or Xarelto or other prescribed drugs. I have this problem and when I have been in the hospital for bowel obstruction surgery they have used heparin via IV to prevent clotting. I don’t think that they use warfarin via IV but I could be wrong.

6. you have a particular condition

that, should you become ill with Covid, your medical team will have to advise you on. for more information, you can ask a question in the youtube comments, but you can't take the response as medical advice. A large percentage of the people viewing MedCram's videos are medical professionals and there are some who treat Covid too.

best idea: don't get sick.

7. Oh, I always ask my pcp

The surgeon is guided by my pcp and my history. The Leiden factor 5 is genetic. The issue with Warfarin is that virtually everything impacts it. Foods, other meds, alcohol will all impact it. Xarelto doesn’t have that issue but there is no “antidote” for Xarelto. If you are clotting too slowly while on warfarin they can give you vitamin K. There is nothing available yet that reverses Xarelto.

8. that's interesting.

i used to do medical record reviews and recall that patients on warfarin had to be constantly monitored and their doses adjusted.
