SGEM#16: Ho, Ho, Hold the PPI

Uploaded on by Ken Milne
Case: A jolly old man presents to the ED vomiting bright red blood all over his fur lined winter coat. You quickly assess his A,B,Cs. The nurse places two big IVs, you bring the advanced airway cart to the bedside and the laboratory draws appropriate blood work. 

Question: Does the use of PPIs prior to endoscopy in acute upper GI bleeds change patient oriented outcomes?
