Caption: The anticoagulant Dalteparin being self injected into the stomach area of 65 year old man. Anticoagulants are a class of drugs that work to prevent the coagulation (clotting) of blood. Dalteparin is a low molecular weight heparin. Like other low molecular weight heparins, dalteparin is used for prophylaxis or treatment of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism. The patient depicted suffered a broken ankle and Dalteparin was prescribed whilst his foot was immobilised in a plaster cast.
