Core Tip To prevent gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding due to stress-related mucosal disease, critically ill patients are often routinely treated with proton pump inhibitors (PPI) or histamine 2 receptor antagonists (H2RA) for stress ulcer prophylaxis (SUP) in the intensive care unit (ICU). While major GI bleeding is currently rare in the ICU, SUP has not improved the overall survival of ICU patients in large clinical trials. Moreover, PPI and H2RA pose significant risks including toxicity, drug-drug-interactions and infectious complications (e.g., nosocomial pneumonia or Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea). Instead of routine SUP, risk-adjusted algorithms may better balance benefits and threats of SUP in the ICU.
