“Capsule Endoscopy for HEmorrhage in the ER”
This is a multi-center randomized controlled trial examining the use of Video Capsule Endoscopy (VCE) to discharge low-moderate risk patients with suspected upper gastrointestinal bleeds (UGIB) from the Emergency Department (ED.) The investigators will enroll 100 subjects at 4 sites who present with signs of hemodynamically stable UGIBs and compare VCE risk assessment to an Active Control (AC) group who receive inpatient upper endoscopy (EGD).
