    I really enjoyed this podcast, and am interested in the anticoagulant training. My mom was given anticoagulant while actively bleeding and hemorrhaged to death. My hubby was given the same anticoagulant and that scared me. He was palpated too forcefully on his right femoral artery and the Mynx closure device for his heart Cath dislodged where he bruised extremely on his private areas. As a nurse, I recognized my own fears as well. It inspired learning and I invested much time in studying the clotting cascade and intricate details of how each medication works. I studied this in pharmacy years previously and will continue to learn and teach it. Thank you for the well constructed podcast. I think it will encourage more learning for health care providers as well as patients.
