Sample text

5 Upper GI bleed Bleeding from the upper GI tract is common and leads to death in up to 10% of cases. It is characterised by vomiting of fresh or altered blood (haematemesis) and tar-black stool (melaena). Melaena often precedes haematemesis, and can occur without it. In oesophageal causes such as varices, however, haematemesis is usually the first sign. If upper GI bleeding is severe, fresh rectal bleeding can occur – in these cases, the patient will be shocked. Cardiovascular manifestations of blood loss such as fainting, postural hypotension or angina (in patients with ischaemic heart disease) may precede GI signs.

Early recognition leading to rapid treatment will minimise the risk of death and the need for a stoma. There are usually no preceding symptoms. The classic sign on examination is ‘board-like rigidity’, but this may be absent in the elderly because of poor muscle bulk and tone. Erect CXR is essential to confirm the presence of free air under the diaphragm. Action: Ask about peptic ulcer disease and ingestion of aspirin/ NSAIDs. Check pulse, BP. Examine the abdomen, looking especially for rebound, guarding and reduced bowel sounds.

Action: Refer urgently to the emergency department for attention of the ENT surgeon.
