Abstract

An increasing number of patients routinely undergo long-term anticoagulation with warfarin or other pharmacological agents. There is little evidence and no consensus documents in the literature regarding the appropriateness and relative risk of their participation in wilderness activities. We present a case report, conduct an analysis of the limited literature that is available, and make recommendations for wilderness medicine practitioners and screening personnel.
