This chapter covers core curriculum topics relating to gastrointestinal haemorrhage. This includes risk assessment for upper gastrointestinal haemorrhage incorporating natural history and prediction of rebleed following peptic ulcer bleeding. Comprehensive coverage of assessment and management of variceal bleeding (gastric and oesophageal) is included including the role of stenting. Causes of presentations with lower gastrointestinal bleeding, including following radiotherapy, are presented along with guidance on assessing shock index, investigation and management strategies. The role of acute imaging versus endoscopic intervention is discussed. Furthermore, investigation and management of obscure and occult gastrointestinal bleeding is covered including small bowel endoscopy and specialist imaging. Additional curriculum material regarding gastrointestinal haemorrhage will also be covered in the mock examination chapter.
