Glasgow-Blatschford Score Validation in Digestive Hemorrhage
Glasgow-Blatschford Score Validation for Stratification of Patients With Digestive Hemorrhage
The purpose of this study is to validate the Glasgow-Blatchford score for the stratification of patients with upper gastro-intestinal hemorrhage. This score is easy to calculate. It is mainly based on the hemoglobin, blood pressure and blood urea. if the score is zero, the bleeding is very low risk and the gastrointestinal endoscopy may be delayed and performed as an outpatient.
