With a product that features a single calibration curve for UFH
and low molecular weight heparin, hemostasis testing is further simplified, saving staff time and lab resources.
was discontinued and a dose of 2,500 IU of dalteparin was substituted as a replacement.
LMWH offers definite advantages over UFH
because of its longer plasma half-life, dose-dependent clearance (resulting in a more predictable anticoagulant response), improved side-effect profile and less frequent monitoring requirements (grade 1B).

, nonstroke medical patients (nine trials, n = 11,650) and acute stroke patients showed no significant difference in mortality, PE, symptomatic DVT, or major bleeding.
The mean total cost was $3,383 US dollars (95% CI= $2,683$4,083) for dalteparin and $4,952 US dollars (95% CI=$4,718-$5,185) for UFH
for inpatient care.
The use of UFH
requires monitoring of the therapeutic level by measuring the activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) in seconds.
Testing of aPTT is required for patients on high dose UFH
