I am theory oriented these days. This is just a general guide to fill pages in my exam. Write everything you can remember!
The mnemonic is, "UPPER"

U: Upper gi bleed

E: Endoscopic therapy (Banding, Tamponade, Sclerotherapy, Laser, Hemoclip, etc.)
Embolization (CT angiography guided transcatheter embolization of artery)
R: Resuscitation (with fluids)
Ryles tube

  1. don't understand all the negative posters? If you don't want to smoke don't smoke, no one is going to force you. But keep your noses out of other people's business. I believe God's going to call me home when he wants. If he's going to do that via tobacco so what? Plus it is much cooler than cigarettes.
