Heparin is an anticoagulant that prevents blood from clotting. It does not dissolve the existing blood clots but averts it from expanding and causing serious problems. Heparin finds its major application in various medical processes, owing to its ability to prevent blood from clotting during surgeries, dialysis and transfusions. Patients undergoing surgeries or those that have been subjected to complete bed rest for long period of time are given low doses of heparin, in order to prevent blood clots. Heparin may also be used to diagnose and treat a serious blood condition called disseminated intravascular coagulation.
