Case Study Chapter 41b Patient with PUD.
Peptic ulcer disease (PUD) is an erosion of the gastrointestinal (GI) mucosa resulting from the digestive action of hydrochloric (HCl) acid and pepsin. Any portion of the GI tract that comes in contact with gastric secretions is susceptible to ulcer development, including the lower esophagus, stomach, duodenum, and margin of gastrojejunal anastomosis after surgical procedures. Peptic ulcers can be classified as acute or chronic, depending on the duration and degree of mucosal involvement, and gastric or duodenal, according to the location. PUD development is associated with a variety of factors, including taking ulcerogenic drugs and the presence of H. pylori infection or chronic gastritis. Treatment for PUD is focused on decreasing gastric acidity and enhancing mucosal defense mechanisms.

A.D., a 48-year-old business executive, is brought to the emergency department by a co-worker. At work he started vomiting a large amount of coffee-ground emesis and requested to go to the hospital. A.D. has a 9-year history of PUD and was hospitalized with upper GI bleeding 4 years ago. At that time, specimens obtained via fiberoptic endoscopy were positive for H. pylori, so he was treated with triple antibiotic therapy.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
