 We spoke of causative disease, the suitability of or contraindication for endoscopy, and the investigative procedures carried out in endoscopy for bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract. Compared to normal endoscopy, emergency endoscopy tends to find the patient's condition in an unstable state. However, it is desirable that careful endoscopic investigation and observation should be carried out. When we find upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage on emergency endoscopy, we use various methods to stop the intestinal bleeding, but if we persist in endoscopic hemostasis only we might endanger the patients life. The timing of a change to other hemostatic methods e.g. surgery is of atmost importance.
