Anticoagulants, commonly referred to as "blood thinners", are medications that interfere with the body's natural blood clotting mechanism. Anticoagulants are necessary if the patient has a deep vein thrombosis ("DVT"), a blood clot in a vital organ such as the heart, brain or liver, or if the patient has a condition that predisposes to blood clot formation such as atrial fibrillation or a hypercoaguability disorder.
