Lovenox Prefilled Syringe Description

Lovenox Prefilled Syringe contains Enoxaparin Sodium which is prescribed as an anticoagulant for patients that are at risk for a blood clot. This may be due to abdominal surgery, a knee or hip replacement, or any reduced mobility due to an illness. A deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot forms in veins deep in a muscle, usually in your legs. This can result in a pulmonary embolism (PE) if a piece of the clot breaks away and travels through your veins to one of your lungs. Once there, the clot can plug an artery and stop that part of your lung from working as it should.

Lovenox Prefilled Syringes Does Not Actually Thin Your Blood

Enoxaparin Sodium is like Heparin, another anticoagulant, but with a lower molecular weight. When administered subcutaneously, into the fat layer between your skin and muscle, it is absorbed into your bloodstream where it blocks the action of factor X and II. These are only two of the twelve clot-promoting proteins in your blood that are required for forming a clot. Although Lovenox Prefilled Syringe may be referred to as a blood thinner, it actually works by slowing your body’s ability to make a clot.

Conditions Treated by Lovenox Prefilled Syringe

Immobility for prolonged periods of time can increase the risk of a blood clot forming and possibly breaking apart where a piece (embolus) can find its way to one of your lungs causing chest pain and shortness of breath or worse. Risk factors for deep vein thrombosis are inherited blood clotting abnormalities, obesity, recent trauma or surgery to abdomen, pelvic area, or legs, and a history of DVT in a close member of your family.

Frequent long distance travelers are also at risk for deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Whether you are going by plane, car, bus, or train it’s important to try and move around to retain the circulation in your legs. Contraction of your leg muscles is important to maintain proper blood flow and sitting for periods of four hours or more can increase the risk. You should walk or stretch as often as you can when travelling, especially if you have any of the risk factors for DVT.
