1. RISK FACTORS FOR GASTROINTESTINAL BLEEDING IN CRITICALLY ILL PATIENTS COOK DJ, ET AL. "RISK FACTORS FOR GASTROINTESTINAL BLEEDING IN CRITICALLY ILL PATIENTS". THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE. 1994. 330(6):337-381. SALT-E: OVMC LANDMARK TRIAL SERIES 2016

2. SUBJECT  Before this landmark trial, use of PPI for stress ulcer prophylaxis is widespread in both ICU and non-ICU patients, despite lack of indication  Patients started on PPI get continued on this medication upon discharge

3. SUBJECT  In critically ill patients, what are the risk factors for developing gastrointestinal hemorrhage?

4. DESIGN  Multicenter, prospective, observational study  Enrollment: 1990-1991  Location: Four academic ICUs  Mean follow up: Not identified  Subject=2,252

5. INTERVENTION  Attending physicians encouragedWITHOLD GI prophylaxis in all patients EXCEPT:  Head injury  Burns over >30% BSA  Organ transplant recipients  Diagnosis of gastritis in the previous 6 weeks  Upper GI bleeding three to six weeks before admission  Patients were followed for bleeding  Prophylaxis options included H2 antagonists, antacids, sucralfate, prostaglandin analogues, and omeprazole

6. OUTCOMES  Primary outcomes:  Clinically important Bleeding  Of 2252 patients, 33 (1.5 percent; 95 percent confidence interval, 1.0 to 2.1 percent) had clinically important bleeding.

7. CRITICISMS  Did not clearly define what comprised a critically ill patient and included many cardiovascular surgical patients -- a group at low risk for complications  Low rate of sepsis, cardiovascular, or respiratory disease as reason for ICU admissions  Coagulopathy defined by elevation in fibrin-split products may better define the condition than alterations in PT/aPTT as warfarin and heparin do not increase risk for GI bleeding

8. BOTTOM LINE  A simple rule predicts the risk of GI bleeding and allows more selective use of prophylaxis against stress ulcers, thus avoiding the unnecessary exposure of patients to potential adverse effects.  The greatest risk factors for GI bleeding in critically ill patients are coagulopathy and mechanical ventilation >48hours.

9. THIS ARTICLE LED TO RECS FOR GI PPX • Coagulopathy (INR > 1.5, Plt < 50K, or PTT > 2x normal) • Mechanical ventilation > 48hrs • GI ulceration or bleeding within the past year • Traumatic brain or spinal cord injury • Severe burn (>35% of the body surface area) Major risk (need at least 1) Minor risk (need > 2) • Sepsis • ICU stay > 1 week • Occult GI bleeding > 6 days • High dose glucocorticoid therapy (>250mg hydrocortisone or equiv.) • Enteral feeding (on case basis)

10. GI PROPHYLAXIS ONWARDS  NOOONNNNEEEE!!!

11. DISCUSSION QUESTION  What are the 2 most important risk factors for GI bleeding in ICU?  Name 3 other risk factors for GI bleeding in ICU.  What type of study is this?  What is one criticism of this study?

12. CLINICAL APPLICATION: GI PPX OR NOT  75yo w/ DM2, HTN, and ESRD on HD p/w left hip fracture, who was kept NPO for the past 3 days due to delaying in surgery schedule  16 yo male w/ DM1 admitted to ICU for DKA secondary to non-compliance  68 yo female w/ DMI2, HLD, and COPD p/w COPD exacerbation caused by community acquired pneumonia requiring 5 day of intubation.  36yo female w/ HIV and found to have CBS lymphoma started on low dose dexamethasone and palliative brain radiation.  59yo active drinker w/ hep C cirrhosis admitted for monitoring of withdrawal symptoms. INR 2.5, platelets 90, albumin 2.8, PTT normal ,and bilirubin 2.
