Core Tip Patients with upper gastrointestinal bleeding (UGIB) require endoscopic treatment with variable outcomes of aspiration, pneumonia, non-endoscopic interventions, and mortality. It is suggested that endotracheal intubation prior to endoscopy might reduce aspiration, pneumonia, and mortality. Few studies have evaluated this issue. We performed a meta-analysis of observational studies examining endotracheal intubation vs no intubation in UGIB patients. We found that patients intubated had higher incidence of pneumonia within 48 h. There was no significant increase in aspiration and mortality in the intubated group. This meta-analysis demonstrates the need for randomized controlled trials to assess the issue.
