GI Bleed

last updated: October 27, 2016

Management

  • fix coagulopathy

  • PPI

  • octreotide (for upper GI bleeds)

  • upper endoscopy

  • colonoscopy

  • tagger RBC scan

  • CTE

... but I would more especially commend the clinician who, in acute diseases, by which the bulk of mankind are cutoff, conducts the treatment better than others.
