Blood thinning medicines, also known as anticoagulants, are used to prevent the formation of clots in a variety of conditions, including patients with atrial fibrillation and those who experience a clot in their leg (deep vein thrombosis or DVT), lung (pulmonary embolism or PE), or brain (stroke). Technically these medicines do not "thin" the blood but more accurately they interrupt the process of blood clotting so that existing clots do not grow in size and new clots do not form.
