Glasgow-Blatschford Score Validation in Digestive Hemorrhage

2014-08-27 03:17:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to validate the Glasgow-Blatchford score for the stratification of patients with upper gastro-intestinal hemorrhage. This score is easy to calculate. It is mainly based on the hemoglobin, blood pressure and blood urea. if the score is zero, the bleeding is very low risk and the gastrointestinal endoscopy may be delayed and performed as an outpatient.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the gastrointestinal tract.

Bleeding in any segment of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT from ESOPHAGUS to RECTUM.

Procedures of applying ENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Endoscopy involves passing an optical instrument along either natural body pathways such as the digestive tract, or through keyhole incisions to examine the interior parts of the body. With advances in imaging, endoscope, and miniaturization of endosurgical equipment, surgery can be performed during endoscopy.

Non-invasive, endoscopic imaging by use of VIDEO CAPSULE ENDOSCOPES to perform examination of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the small bowel.

Acquired degenerative dilation or expansion (ectasia) of normal BLOOD VESSELS, often associated with aging. They are isolated, tortuous, thin-walled vessels and sources of bleeding. They occur most often in mucosal capillaries of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT leading to GASTROINTESTINAL HEMORRHAGE and ANEMIA.
