Unfractionated heparin (also known as standard heparin) is a well-established
drug that has been used in the hospital setting for many years.
Heparin has the characteristic property of delaying clotting of
the blood and is therefore used as an anticoagulant in the treatment
and prophylaxis of thromboembolic disorders. Heparin is also used
to flush devices such as cannulas and catheters in order to maintain
