Modified Blatchford score is used for the risk stratification of:

(a) Pancreatitis
(b) Sepsis
(c) Upper gastrointestinal bleeding
(d) Cholangitis

Show/Hide Answer

ANS- (c) Upper gastrointestinal bleeding

The advantage of the Blatchford score is that it may be used before endoscopy to predict the need for intervention to treat bleeding. Low scores (2 or less) are associated with a very low risk of adverse outcome.
