Upper gastrointestinal (GIT) bleeding is common in high risk critically ill patients. Hyperacidity has been identified as one of the main reasons for bleeding.1 2 Antacids with different treatment modalities have been studied to establish the best regimen for prophylaxis against bleeding.3 4 Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) are the most common drugs used in the medical field as antacids. The present study was carried out to investigate the beneficial effects of high dose omeprazole versus standard low dose as a prophylaxis against upper GIT bleeding in high risk critically ill patients.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Critical Illness||Drug: Omeprazole Drug: Placebo group||Not Applicable|
A hundred and ten high risk critically ill patients were divided into two groups, fify five patients each. Group A received intravenous (IV) omeprazole 40mg bolus dose once daily followed by normal saline infusion. Group B received IV bolus of 80 mg omeprazole followed by 8mg/h infusion. The treatment was for the whole period of ICU stay. Gastric pH, residual gastric volume, signs of significant upper GIT bleeding, ICU stay Hb, number of ventilator free days, ICU stay haemoglobin (Hb), number of red cell units transfused in ICU, ICU stay, and numbers of ICU survivors were recorded.
