Medgeeks Clinical Review Podcast

Jun 28, 2018

​You're on the rapid response team and are called over to a patient presenting with hypotension. 

Per nursing, the patient is a 58 year old male with a PMH of:

  • ​ETOH abuse (1 pint of vodka daily)
  • Cirrhosis

While in the room, the patient vomits a large amount of bright red blood, followed by a drop in the systolic blood pressure to the 70s.​

The patient looks lethargic, unresponsive to verbal stimuli or a sternal rub. You see fresh blood in the oropharynx. 

What should you do next?

We'll walk you through and answer that for you in today's podcast. 


p.s. this is part 3 of 3 for the GI bleed lecture series. Next week, we'll tackle a brand new topic.
