I've searched trgouhh the literature I have, am a nursing student, and cannot find a reason for using heparin. Anemias from what I understand are a decrease or loss of red blood cells. Since during sickle cell anemia the red blood cells collapse on themselves because of the inability to carry oxygen, I would hypothesize that giving heparin to someone in that state could cause hemorrhage. During a sickle cell crisis the sickled red blood cells will accumulate in the joints and intersecting pathways of the body where they clump up and cause a lot of inflammation and pain. Death can result from one of these episodes and most patients are very fragile during this time.They will give blood transfusions during a crisis so I don't see how thinning the blood would be helpful if they are trying to replace the lost efficiency of the red blood cells to carry oxygen. Because oxygen depletion is common they will become hypoxic. Meaning they can turn blue, they will gasp for air, dizziness, and basically act as someone drowning due to lack of oxygen. Because hypovolemia (loss of blood volume) occurs I would think that giving blood thinners would further potentiate this effect. I am not sure the laws of Florida. I do know that it is up to Law Enforcement to give a thorough investigation when wrongdoing is suspected. The other thing to do if they won't is contact the life insurance company because if they can prove wrongdoing existed they will go on with an investigation and hand over evidence to law enforcement. Basically if they don't have to pay they won't and they like to find ways not to. The effects of heparin can be:hematoma, heparin induced thrombocytopenia, pain, erythema, injection site ulcer, thrombosis, hemorrhage, increased liver aminotransferase level, anaphylaxis, immune hypersensitivity reaction, and osteroporosis with long term high dose administration. So it could be wrong doing, I would hope and pray to God that considering she is an LPN and agrees to live and practice ethically and to never bring harm that there is a logical explanation. At this point without further information though, I wouldn't know. Unless he was going to have abdominal surgery or knee replacement surgery I am not sure why they would give him heparin, there is so many other anticoagulants that are much safer and preferred. There also was heparin that was recalled lately because it did kill people because of the illegal ingredients added in China. I hope this helps somewhat. Good luck and I will keep you all in my prayers that they do an autopsy and find out what really happened. My advice is to never stop searching for answers and express your concerns wholeheartedly with the police.
