Introduction

Vascium 18mg Injection is a medicine that dissolves clots that have formed in blood vessels. It is used to treat a heart attack. It is known as a thrombolytic or “clot-busting” drug. This medicine restores the blood flow to the affected tissue, thereby preventing tissue death.

Vascium 18mg Injection is an injectable drug, given directly into a vein and it is given by a doctor as soon as possible after the first signs of a heart attack. Your breathing, blood pressure, oxygen levels, and other vital signs will be watched closely. You may be given another medicine to stop blood clotting at the same time or after the treatment.
