Approach to Patients with GI Symptoms

Approach to Patients with GI Symptoms

by Kelley Chuang, MD

Gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms are among the most common complaints in the ER and outpatient care settings for both children and adults. A competent physician or nurse should be aware of the most prevalent GI illnesses in their area of practice. They should, moreover, be able to differentiate between conditions that constitute an emergency and those that can be managed in outpatient care.

In this course, the student will be given a walkthrough of the most common GI complaints and their causes, including GI bleeding, diarrhea, constipation, and dyspepsia.

For optimal comprehension, the student is required to have preliminary knowledge of the anatomy, histology, physiology, and pathology of the GI tract and associated glands.

I would certainly recommend this course.
By Luka Victor D. on 14. April 2024 for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) with Case

I also don't know why this course is rated poorly. It really helps to give a great overview. The lecturer also answers with great detail to our questions.
