Don't u think this is poorly worded question.
If you are asking about efficacy then full dose IV heparin is the most effective but it is less safe and not cost effective. I think your Q should be "what is the best choice?"

SO Subcutanious Hepari is the choice . Do u also agree with it mccee/ How about early ambulation?
Please clarify.
