Pharmacokinetics and Anticoagulation Service

The Clinical Pharmacokinetics and Anticoagulation Service Guidelines were developed to ensure safe and efficacious dosage regimens through the application of pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic principles and the determination of drug serum concentrations.

The policy/procedure manual outlines standard guidelines which should be followed when providing clinical pharmacokinetic monitoring of the following drugs:

  • Aminoglycosides
  • Carbamazepine
  • Digoxin
  • Direct Oral Anticoagulants
  • Direct Thrombin Inhibitors
  • Enoxaparin
  • Fosphenytoin
  • Lidocaine
  • Lithium
  • Phenobarbital
  • Phenytoin (free and total)
  • Procainamide
  • Quinidine
  • Theophylline
  • Valproic acid
  • Vancomycin
  • Warfarin

In addition to the above list UK HealthCare pharmacy services has guidelines for Heparin Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT) and the assessment and management of Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis. View a copy of our Clinical Pharmacokinetics and Anticoagulation Service Guidelines (PDF, 1.15 MB).
