Heparin Sodium Injection is indicated for treatment to stop your blood from clotting in many surgical and non-surgical situations like preventing and stopping the spread of blood clots in your veins, preventing and stopping the spread of blood clots to your lungs, treatment of some disorders of blood clotting, prevention of blood clotting during surgery, prevention and treatment of blood clots in your arteries. Heparin stops reactions that lead to the clotting of blood and the formation of clots. Once an active blood clot has developed, larger amounts of heparin can inhibit further clotting. Peak levels of heparin are achieved 2-4 hours following intravenous administration, although there are considerable individual variations. The product should be administered under the supervision of a qualified health professional who is experienced in the use of anticoagulant agents. Appropriate management of therapy and complications is only possible when adequate diagnostic and treatment facilities are readily available.
