Core Tip Dyspepsia is a common symptoms complex necessitating medical consultation. Alarm features usually guided the necessity of performing upper endoscopy in the outpatients’ settings. The yield of upper endoscopy and data regarding alarm features in hospitalized patients with dyspepsia are lacking. We found that tachycardia, persistent vomiting, normocytic anemia, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, leukocytosis and hypoalbuminemia were strongly associated with significant endoscopic findings. Unexplained weight loss and abnormal computed tomography findings were strongly associated with malignancy. This is the first study exploring alarm features in hospitalized patients with dyspepsia. Our findings might guide physicians in prioritizing hospitalized patients for upper endoscopy performance.
