Coumadin/Plavix

My husband had vascular surgery several years ago and because of his allergy to ASA has been placed on Plavix every 2 days, no blood work required, he does bruise easily and he will bleed longer than the average person, anytime this has happened direct pressure to the cut and elevating the cut if possibe above heart level, even if he had to lay down, solved the bleeding issue in a short time.but we have never had a serious incident with the plavix. I would advise you take a first aid course if you haven't already to know how to deal with arterial bleeds, these are quite different from surface injuries. The plavix hasn't slowed us down at all and is easy to deal with.
