Abstract

For healthcare providers, it is critical to consider risk factors that indicate the need for medication adjustments and endoscopic evaluation when treating a patient with dysphagia and epigastric abdominal pain. A thorough assessment that includes the patient’s past medical history, review of symptoms, and physical exam is essential. The knowledge gained from this assessment can provide pertinent information and allow for interventions to be made that can reduce patient morbidity and mortality. Preemptive changes to the medication regimen and endoscopic evaluation for assessment of pathological findings can promote early diagnosis and treatment to improve patient outcomes.
