Anticoagulation is a term that describes the reduced ability of the blood to form clots. Anticoagulants, while commonly called blood thinners, actually make blood cells less likely to stick together, preventing clots from forming. Due to certain conditions such as atrial fibrillation, deep vein thrombosis, or pulmonary embolism or other hereditary conditions, you may require the use of an anticoagulant.
