HEPLOCK INJECTION 2ML
HEPLOCK INJECTION 2ML belongs to a class of drugs called anticoagulants or blood thinner. HEPLOCK INJECTION 2ML is primarily used to prevent and treat deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in leg veins) and pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lung) stroke, Transient ischaemic attack (TIA), heart attacks. Deep vein thrombosis is a medical condition in which blood clots form in deep veins usually in legs. Pulmonary embolism is a condition in which blood clot blocks the arteries in the lungs. stroke is a condition where where a blood clot restricts the flow of blood to your brain, causing brain cells to die and possibly resulting in permanent brain damage or death, Transient ischaemic attack (TIA) is condition also called 'mini-strokes', these have similar symptoms to a stroke, but the effects usually last less than 24 hours. heart attacks is a condition where a blood clot blocks a blood vessel supplying your heart, starving it of oxygen and causing chest pain and sometimes death.
Blood clots are formed to stop bleeding that occurs due to tissue injury. Though blood clots are useful to stop bleeding, they may be harmful when abnormally formed within blood vessels as they block blood vessels and inhibit blood flow to essential organs such as the brain, heart, or lungs. HEPLOCK INJECTION 2ML works by inhibiting the production of fibrin (a protein that binds platelets together and forms a clot) preventing blood clot formation.
