Over the next three weeks we are going to dive into the GI bleed patient. We're going to divide these lectures into: upper GI bleed (above the ligament of treitz), lower GI bleed (below the ligament of treitz), and the scary liver patient who has a GI bleed.
Today, let's work through an upper GI bleed case presentation as we touch on the background, evaluation, and management of the patient.
Today we're going to be discussing a 75 year male patient presenting with a chief complaint of 3 days of black stool.
He came into the ED because he had a dark bowel movement and dizziness.
Let's walk through this case together so you feel confident evaluating the upper GI bleed patient.
