Intravenous Lovenox and PTT

Dana Haas at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in Houston, TX asks about the effect of Lovenox on the ACT and PTT… 
In our institution they have started giving patients Lovenox through IV lines (just one shot, not a constant infusion) for patients going for heart catherization. MDs have noticed that Lovenox is prolonging their ACTs and PTTs. Evidently the half life is shorter than giving them unfractionated heparin. I was wondering, does anyone know of a study that’s been published about this?
