Several meta-analyses pertaining to stress ulcer bleeding have been published, including one designed to resolve the discordant results of the others. Given the sheer volume of published informa- tion, it is understandable that health care providers experience frustration when confronting this topic. Stress ulcers are superficial lesions commonly but not exclusively involving the mucosal layer of the stomach that appear after major stressful events such as surgery and trauma. Simply placing tubes in the upper respiratory or GI tract may injure the mucosa and result in microscopic or macro- scopic i. Because not all episodes of microscopic bleeding are clinically relevant, studies using only microscopic bleeding as an endpoint artifi- cially inflate the reported frequency of GI bleeding.

Tolerance of enteral nutrition in the ICU is dependent on adequate gut perfusion, thereby demonstrating that the patient is not experiencing splanchnic ischemia.

Prpphylaxis landmark trial in identified the most significant risk factors for stress gastropathy as mechanical ventilation for greater than 48 h and primary coagulopathy.

Contemporary studies have failed to replicate significant rates of gastrointestinal bleeding, likely in part due to these advances in care. J Intensive Care Med Although this study was not powered to determine a difference in CSGIB based on contemporary rates of bleeding, it is hypothesis generating, and larger scales stress are currently enrolling [ ]. The decrease sfress CSGIB in recent years may guuidelines attributed to the improved management of critically ill patients.

Major practice changes, including early aggressive fluid resuscitation and development of dynamic markers for volume status, have reduced the likelihood for prolonged hypoperfusion states. Recent studies, including a pilot randomized trial, are questioning the ulccer of pharmacologic prophylaxis in the modern era, with undetectable rates of gastrointestinal bleeding in enrolled patients. One of these advancements is early goal directed therapy EGDTwhich promotes aggressive early fluid resuscitation in septic patients.

McClave S, Martindale R, Vanek Guidelines for the provision and assessment of nutrition support therapy in the adult critically ill patient. These patients have been evaluated in several studies that prophy,axis concluded that enteral nutrition was able to decrease overt bleeding and no additional pharmacologic prophylaxis was needed [ ]. The increase in recognition and early treatment of sepsis has likely impacted a reduction in stress ulcers through avoidance of hypoperfusion [ 6 ].

Furthermore, enteral nutrition may independently provide prophylaxis against stress gastropathy by increasing intragastric pH, similar to medication therapies, and providing cytotoxin protection [ ]. May 31, s Citation: Patients with neurologic injury or traumatic brain injury have been seen as a risk factor, but the above studies included these patients and did not show a change in the rates of CSGIB.

We No Longer Need to Stress Ulcer Prophylaxis in the Critically Ill Another major change in practice over the past decades is the promotion of early enteral nutrition in the critically ill. Preventing stress gastropathy has been a mainstay in the management of critically ill patients for decades. Porphylaxis, the recognition of the important of enteral nutrition early in the ICU stay encourages mesenteric perfusion and reduces risk for development of ischemic damage.
