Haematemesis

Haematemesis

Haematemesis or vomiting of blood is a symptom that requires immediate medical attention. The most common reasons would be bleeding somewhere in the upper gastrointestinal tract, nasal cavity, the lungs, the stomach or even the small intestine. The vomited blood may either be bright red, dark red or blood mixed with mucus or food particles. There is no treatment but immediate medical attention is needed. Usually the patient is interviewed and initial diagnostic procedures are performed to determine the cause.
