I am a student at a medical ward and we don't get a lot patients with complicated cardiac issues. I was going through the heparin Monograms and I noticed that there is a monogram for acute coronary syndrome which has lower dosage of heparin and another monogram for full dose. Why is it that some patients are placed on different monograms? and why is it that some patients with MI recieve heparin whereas some others don't?
I already went through my pharm,medsurg book but couldn't find an answer
