Acute gastrointestinal bleeding could be a probably serious abdominal emergency that is still a standard reason behind hospitalization. Upper Gastrointestinal Bleeding (UGIB) is outlined as hemorrhage derived from a supply proximal to the ligament of Treitz. Upper GI hemorrhage originates within the initial a part of the GI tract-the passageway, stomach, or small intestine (first a part of the tiny intestine). Most often, higher GI hemorrhage is caused by one amongst the following: a. Peptic ulcers b. Gastritis.
The amount of GI bleeding may be so small that it can only be detected on a lab test such as the fecal occult blood test. Massive bleeding from the GI tract can be dangerous. However, even very small amounts of bleeding that occur over a long period of time can lead to problems such as anemia or low blood counts.
