    Default Pradaxa (Dabigatran) and regional/neuraxial anesthesia

    I just saw an ad for Pradaxa for anticoagulation in A-fib. The advertisement indicates that there is no routine bloodwork required compared to checking INR for coumadin therapy. Pradaxa is a reversible monovalent thrombin inhibitor. I tried to find ASRA recommendations with its use and didn't find anything, however I did find guidelines from the European Society of Anaesthesiology which I have attached here. If anyone has any further info please share. Thanks.
