Traditional blood thinners (coumadin and warfarin) require regular blood testing. This blood testing monitors the level of drug in a person's system and ensures that a patient's blood is thin enough to prevent clots but thick enough to preven massive bleeds.
The makers of Xarelto chose not to require this type of testing. This decision has resulted in many people being unaware that their blood was dangerously thin putting them at an increased risk of having a massive bleed. This decision has resulted in life-threatening bleeds and bleeds that resulted in death.
