Neutrahep 5ml is prescribed for Heparin neutralization reaction during Enoxaparin, extra-corporeal circulation or dalteparin over-dosage.
Mechanism Of Action
Prepared from the sperm cell or mature testicles of salmon or attendant species, the medication is a heparin antagonist. It blends with heparin to make a stabilized inactive complex. Neutrahep 5ml is often utilized in the treatment of bleeding from intense heparin overdose and should not be utilized in insignificant overdose/bleeding as heparin backdown will normally rectify itself within a few hr. For LMWH (Low-molecular-weight heparin), it neutralizes the anti-thrombin action but only partially neutralizes the anti-factor-Xa action.
