Several methods to prevent extracorporeal circuit clotting during hemodialysis have been used in human medicine. Unfractionated (UF) heparin remains the mainstay of anticoagulant therapy in both human and veterinary intermittent hemodialysis. Different UF heparin regimes may be used depending on the bleeding risk of the patient. In patients with active bleeding or with a recent history of surgery or hemorrhagic episodes, hemodialysis may be performed without any anticoagulation or with regional anticoagulation.
