Heparin Uses

Heparin is used to prevent heart attack. It helps prevent blood clots from forming in legs, lungs, heart or any other parts of the body.

How Heparin works

Heparin is an anticoagulant. It works by preventing the formation of harmful blood clots. Although it does not dissolve the existing blood clots, it prevents them from growing larger and causing blockages in the blood vessels.
