Mayo Clinic Talks: Determining the Source of GI Blood Loss
Registration required for CME credit
Featured Expert: Andrew C. Storm, M.D.
Determining the source of GI blood loss can be a challenging dilemma. On occasion, we have clues regarding where we should start looking, but in some cases, no such clues exist. It’s best to use a stepwise approach to determining the source and in most cases, this will give us the answer we need. When a cause is found, most tend to be from an upper GI source rather than the colon. Whereas an upper endoscopy and colonoscopy will determine the source in the majority, in some cases, more aggressive techniques are required. In this podcast, we’ll be discussing GI blood loss, and which approach we should use to determine the source. Our guest is Andrew C. Storm, M.D., a gastroenterologist from the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Mayo Clinic.
