Heparin Vial is a vital medication used to prevent and treat blood clots. Its multifaceted utility encompasses the prevention and treatment of blood clots in the lungs and legs, including cases associated with atrial fibrillation. 

Furthermore, it is indicated to address specific blood clotting disorders, serving as a crucial tool in managing thromboembolic conditions. 

The versatility of Heparin Vial is evident in its application to prevent blood clots post-surgery, during dialysis, blood transfusions, blood sample collection, and in situations where prolonged immobility poses a risk of clot formation.


  • Use Heparin Vial exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider.
  • Follow your healthcare provider's instructions regarding dosage, frequency, injection site (vein or under the skin), and monitoring plan.
  • Double-check the strength and dose of Heparin before injecting to avoid errors.
  • Clean the injection site with rubbing alcohol if injecting under the skin.
  • Rotate injection sites under the skin to prevent irritation.
  • Learn proper injection techniques if administering Heparin yourself at home.
