The PTT response to dabigatran is unreliable and there is considerable variability in sensitivity to dabigatran among PTT reagents. A modification of the TCT, the plasma-diluted TCT (Hemoclot Direct Thrombin Inhibitor Assay, Aniara Hyphen, West Chester, OH), provides a quantitative measure of dabigatran when used with calibrators but is currently restricted to research use only. This chapter describes all the commonly used and the newly developed hemostasis tests available for the clinical laboratory.

The physiologic clotting cascade consists of the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways that eventually converge on the common pathway of blood coagulation carboxylation of their glutamic acid residues to bind to the phospholipid surface of the vascular endothelium. The enzyme that carries out the carboxylation, gamma-glutamyl carboxylase (GGC), can only function if it can concurrently convert vitamin K hydroquinone to vitamin K epoxide. The vitamin K epoxide is in turn recycled back to vitamin K and vitamin K hydroquinone by vitamin K epoxide reductase (VKOR) and vitamin k Reductase (VKR) respectively [4].

Other agents that have been considered are antifibrinolytic agents (tranexamic acid, ε-aminocaproic acid). Patients who have taken a DTI dose in the 1–2 h prior to presentation can also be given oral activated charcoal to remove the drug. Factor Xa Inhibitors Drugs: Indirect—Fondaparinux (Arixtra) (Fig. 7) Direct—Rivaroxaban (Xarelto), Apixaban (Eliquis), Edoxaban (Savaysa) Mechanism of Action Factor Xa inhibitors are another class of TSOACs that affect the common coagulation pathway. Whereas DTIs bind and inhibit thrombin, all FTIs except for Fondaparinux directly inhibit factor Xa, the enzyme responsible for activation of thrombin.
