It's a blood thinner. It's often used in heart patients to keep the blood thin enough to flow through partially blocked arteries. It can also be used in those who have had blood clots. It's necessary to have a blood test every month to make sure the blood thickness is ok. People using it have to be very careful of injuries because of loss of blood.
