    Currently 4 antithrombin drugs that inhibit thrombin molecules directly
    Contraindications:Contraindications:
    Warfarin is strongly contraindicated in pregnant woman
    LMWH's are contraindicated in patients with an indwelling catheter.

    lysis of fibrin, actuallyfibrin,actually promoting clot
    Fibrin is the substance that helps make a platelet plug insoluble and anchors the clot ot the damaged blood vessel
    3 synthetic drugs currently available-aminocaproic acid, tranexamic acid, and desmopressin
    Drugs available for topic use to stop excessive bleeding
    Useful drugs in the prevention and treatment of excessive bleeding resulting from systemic hyperfibrinolysis or surgical complications
    MechanismMechanism of Action/Drug
    *Promotes clot formation*
    Aminocaproic acid and tranexamic acid- inhibit the breakdown of fibrin, which prevents the destruction of the formed platelet clot
    ...
    Mechanism of Action
    *Breaks down EXISTING clots*
    ...
    plasminogen to plasmin whichplasminwhich breaks down
    Plasmin is a proteolytic enzyme which breaks down protein such as fibrin, fibrogen and platelet factors (substances that form clots)
    Streptokinase and urokinase have been removed from the U.S. market due to their adverse effects, newer substances carry lesser bleeding chance

    ...work on the Parasympathetic Nervous System
    The Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) is a part of the autonomic nervous system and compliments the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). It promotes normal maintenance of the body, utilizes and rids of waste, and increases secretions and mobility of the digestive tract. Basically, it is used for "resting and digesting."

    Cholinergic drugs are also known as cholinergic agonists. They mimic the effects of acetylcholine and stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system.
