Once the decision for admission has been made, efforts should focus on stratifying patients into high and low risk categories to determine which patients need ICU admission and urgent endoscopy.

Initial management should always focus on hemodynamic resuscitation prior to risk stratification. This is an unprecedented time.

When to Use. Why Use. Use for adult patients being considered for hospital admission due to upper GI bleeding. Its use is controversial for patients already admitted, as very few were represented in the original cohort and many of these patients receive endoscopic evaluation.

Any of the 9 variables, if present, increase the priority for admission and likelihood of need for acute intervention. Scores range from , with higher scores corresponding to increasing acuity and mortality. A score of 0 suggests low risk of complications 0. Clinicians must use their best judgment in assessing whether the patient has heart failure or liver disease. For example, a mild elevation in liver enzymes or steatosis is not considered hepatic failure; likewise, mild diastolic dysfunction was not considered heart failure in the model.

History of coffee-ground emesis is NOT counted in the tool as it has a low risk of case fatality likelihood ratio 0. Points to keep in mind: Clinicians must use their best judgment in assessing whether the patient has heart failure or liver disease. Variables such as age, creatinine, coagulopathy, mental status, and comorbidities like malignancy or pulmonary disease are not a part of this calculator, although they may impact medical decision making.

Easy and quick to calculate. Aids in efficient resource utilization. Spares the use of NG lavage. Scores correlate with cost and length of stay, need for blood transfusion, endoscopic treatment, surgery, and mortality. Well-validated in numerous populations. Has been found to be superior to the AIMS65 in predicting need for intervention transfusion, endoscopic treatment, IR, or surgery or rebleeding, although the AIMS65 remains a better predictor of mortality Stanley Initial systolic BP.

The Glasgow-Blatchford bleeding score GBS is a screening tool to assess the likelihood that a person with an acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding UGIB will need to have medical intervention such as a blood transfusion or endoscopic intervention. Advantages of the GBS over the Rockall score , which assesses the risk of death in UGIB, include a lack of subjective variables such as the severity of systemic diseases and the lack of a need for oesophagogastroduodenoscopy OGD to complete the score, a feature unique to the GBS. Among this group there were no deaths or interventions needed and people were able to be effectively treated in an outpatient setting. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
