Referring MD: Barry C. Moore, MD.
Providers: Paul Angulo, MD, Jassir Witta, MD (Fellow).
Medicines: Fentanyl 100 micrograms IV, Midazolam 6 MG IV.
After obtaining informed consent, the endoscope was passed under direct vision. Throughout the procedure, the patient’s blood pressure, pulse and oxygen saturations were monitored continuously. The endoscope was introduced through the mouth and advanced to the second part of duodenum. The upper GI endoscopy was accomplished without difficulty. The patient tolerated the procedure well.
Findings: Grade I varices were found in the middle third of the esophagus and in the lower third of the esophagus.
For this condition the doctor has me taking Nadolol 40 MG a day. I am fundraising for this medication.
