Pawa et al. Blood Tests Initial blood tests include FBC (anemia, raised WCC, platelet count), clotting screen, group and save/cross match, U&Es (uremia – disproportionate to creatinine rise in upper GI causes due to digestion of blood proteins), and LFTs (chronic liver disease). Locating the Bleeding Source and Therapeutic Intervention to Stop Bleeding Oesophagogastroduodenoscopy (OGD) In patients with significant hematochezia and hemodynamic instability, an OGD should be performed first to exclude an upper GI cause.

Pawa et al. fresh looking and not mixed with the stools. He complains of some lower abdominal discomfort and denies any change in his bowel habit. He has a history of cardiac disease and is currently taking an aspirin tablet daily. On examination, he is distressed, tachypneic and apyrexial with a pulse of 120 bpm and a blood pressure of 100/80 mmHg. Key Features of History and Examination Lower gastrointestinal bleeding makes up approximately onequarter of all gastrointestinal bleeding, ranging from minimal hematochezia (passage of bright red or maroon blood per rectum), melena (passage of black tarry stools per rectum, suggesting an upper gastrointestinal cause), to significant shock.

Intravenous access (2 × 14 gauge venflons) should be obtained, a urinary catheter inserted, and blood collected for full blood count, urea and electrolytes, a coagulation profile (if clinically indicated), and blood for cross match. Many hematology departments have “ruptured aneurysm” or “massive bleed” protocols so activate these. Resuscitate the patient carefully. A policy of “permissive hypotension” is usually adopted. This does not prohibit the use of fluids, but they should be given to maintain a systolic blood pressure of just above 80 mmHg.
