Print

Why this page is important: The main use of the HAS-BLED tool is to identify people at high risk of bleeding who could benefit from increased vigilance and a specific focus on correction of modifiable risk factors such as uncontrolled hypertension, poor control of international normalized ratio (INR), concurrent medication (for example concurrent use of aspirin or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug), and harmful alcohol consumption.

A HAS-BLED score of ≥3 indicates that caution is warranted when prescribing oral anticoagulation and regular review is recommended.
