○ Longer half-life so it can be
administered sub Q qd or BID.
○ Lab monitoring is not required and
dosing is fixed.
○ HIT is less likely.
○ May be used in outpatient setting,
whereas UFH is not.
● IV UFH is not cleared by kidneys so better for CKD
patients. UFH requires hospitalization as it is given IV with
dosage based on body weight and titrated based on the PTT.
