Medical Guideline: Upper GI Bleeding
Brief Description: This guideline describes the symptoms of possible upper GI bleed and ultimately the diagnosis of an upper GI bleed through focused assessment with initial labs. Steps in management of high-risk and low-risk patients are also discussed. The first priority is to ensure that the patient is hemodynamically stable, which often requires admission to the ICU for monitoring and fluid resuscitation.
