Last week we discussed PUD and gastritis. We touch on H. Pylori as a leading cause of PUD, but it deserves it's own slot for review. While we don't usually diagnose or treat this in the ED ourselves, it is useful to know so we can discuss this important disease with our patients!
In the next several posts, we review some of the common GI disorders we see in the ED, starting with peptic ulcer disease and gastritis. Read on for a good overview and some pearls of wisdom from Dr. Ugorets!
