No. Anticoagulants and antiplatelets differ in how they work. Anticoagulants prevent blood coagulation by reducing the action of clotting factors directly or indirectly. Antiplatelets work by inhibiting the ability of platelets to participate in the clotting process. Aspirin is an example of an antiplatelet medication.
Introduction. During the past 20 years, the approval of anticoagulants such as low-molecular-weight heparins (LMWHs), indirect factor Xa inhibitors (eg, fondaparinux), and direct thrombin inhibitors (eg, argatroban, bivalirudin, lepirudin, and desirudin) has signaled a growing interest in antithrombotic compounds that have relatively discrete targets within the coagulation pathway.
Mechanism of Action: Blocks the carboxylation of several glutamate residues in prothrombin & factors VII, IX and X as well as the endogenous anticoagulant proteins C and S . The blockade results in incomplete molecules that are biologically inactive in coagulation.
Mechanism of Action of Coumarin Anticoagulant Drugs Coumarins are vitamin K antagonists that produce their anticoagulant effect by interfering with the cyclic inter-conversion of vitamin K and its 2,3 epoxide (vitamin K epoxide). Vitamin K is a cofactor for the posttranslational carboxylation of glutamate residues to g-carboxygluta-
Oral anticoagulants differ from heparin primarily in their longer duration of action, which is the result of extensive binding to plasma proteins, giving these agents relatively long plasma half-lives. Oral anticoagulants are metabolized by the liver and excreted in the urine and feces.
The purpose of this review is to compare the three target specific oral anticoagulants (TSOAC) and warfarin. Table 1.

Future Sections will deal with parenteral anticoagulants ( Section II), vitamin K antagonists ( Section III ), new anticoagulants in acute coronary syndromes ( Section IV ), and special situations ( Sec-tion V ).
Theoptimal therapeutic range for oral anticoagulant therapy was reviewedby the Committee on Antithrombotic Therapy of the American College of Chest Physicians and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in1986, 1989, 1992, 1995, and again in 1998.

The following points highlight the top five anticoagulants that are commonly used in hematology. The anticoagulants are: 1. Double Oxalate 2. Ethylene Di-Amine Tetra Acetic Acid 3. Heparin 4. Sodium Citrate 5. Sodium Fluoride. Anticoagulant # 1. Double Oxalate: 0.5 anticoagulant for 5 ml of blood. Chemical Action:

Oral Anticoagulants Overview/Summary The oral anticoagulants, dabigatran etexilate mesylate (Pradaxa®), rivaroxaban (Xarelto®), and warfarin (Coumadin®, Jantoven®) each have a unique mechanism of action and are Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved for the various cardiovascular indications outlined in Table 2. 1-3 Warfarin, has been the
The mechanism of action, route of administration, and dosing of anticoagulants and their reversal agents are listed in Table 2. Recommendations for periprocedural management in patients taking anticoagulants are included in Table 3. The coagulation cascade and point of activity of anticoagulants are illustrated in Figure 1.

Consequently, the emergency physician should be familiar with the newer and older anticoagulants. This review emphasizes the indication, mechanism of action, adverse effects, and potential reversal strategies for various anticoagulants that the emergency physician will likely encounter.
Unlike all other anticoagulants, warfarin's mechanism of action is quite unique. Instead of binding to active clotting factors to induce anticoagulation, it reduces the total amount of clotting factors in the circulation.

Heparins. The heparins are a group of anticoagulants that consist of unfractionated heparin, low molecular weight heparins, and heparinoids.. Unfractionated heparin (usually just called heparin) needs to be given directly into the blood by intravenous (IV) injection, and inhibits thrombin and factor Xa, factors necessary in the final stages of the blood clotting cascade.

Pharmacology and pharmacokinetic properties. The new oral anticoagulants differ in their pharmacology and pharmacokinetics (Table 1).Although their onset of action and half-life are quite similar, other properties such as their respective mechanism of action, bioavailability, metabolism and clearance are different.
- Rapid onset of action. - No interaction with food. Some of their limitations are the higher cost, limited monitoring (if needed, as only qualitative measures available) and the lack of a specific antidote. The following Table 1 show the pharmacokinetics characteristics and indications of the new oral anticoagulants compared with warfarin ...
Abstract. The new oral anticoagulants are approved for a variety of clinical syndromes, including the prevention of stroke in atrial fibrillation, acute coronary syndromes, treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE), and prevention of venous thrombosis after total joint surgery or hip fracture.
The phenomenon of blood coagulation is traditionally distinguished into two pathways. These pathways are the intrinsic and the extrinsic pathways (Figure below).The intrinsic pathway is defined as a cascade that utilizes only factors that are soluble in the plasma, whereas the extrinsic pathway consists of some factors that are insoluble in the plasma, e.g., membrane-bound factors (factor VII).

In 2008, two new oral anticoagulant drugs were registered in Australia for the prevention of venous thrombosis after elective knee or hip replacement. Rivaroxaban is a direct reversible competitive antagonist of activated factor X. Dabigatran etexilate is a direct reversible competitive antagonist ...
Based in part on those DLS data, 33 direct binding to DOACs has been proposed as the putative mechanism of action of PER977, but our findings suggest that PER977 might derive its purported DOAC-neutralization activity in a different manner. Some insight into the alternate mechanism of action is provided by our finding that PER977 binds FIXa.
