What can I learn from this test?

The test most commonly used is an immunoassay to detect the presence of antibodies that are produced by some patients when they are treated with heparin. Although, HIT II occurs more frequently with treatment using unfractionated heparin (UFH) than with low molecular weight heparin (LMWH).

What can I test?

Heparin

Heparin is a common anticoagulant that is given intravenously or through subcutaneous injections to prevent the formation of blood clots (thrombosis) or as an initial treatment for those who have a blood clot, to prevent the clot from enlarging. It is often given during some operations, such as cardiopulmonary bypass, when the risk for developing blood clots is high. Small amounts of heparin are frequently used to flush out catheters and intravenous lines to keep clots from forming in them.
