Heparin is a anticoagulant commonly used in the treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Although called a “blood thinner,”Heparin does not actually thin your blood.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has now issued a recall of injectable Heparin products and Heparin flush solutions that may be contaminated with oversulfated chondroitin sulfate (OCSC). The action is the result of numerous reports of deaths associated with allergic or hypotensive symptoms after Heparin administration.

If you loved one is in a hospital or nursing home, make certain they are not receiving any of the recalled Heparin products….it might just save their life!
