Video Transcript


Hello, and welcome. Thank you so much for joining me for this video. I’m really happy that you’ve taken time out of your busy schedule to join me for this video. And in this video, we will be talking about Peptic Ulcer Disease Complications and Management, an Algorithmic Approach.

My name is Dr. Kashif Piracha. I’m going to be your host for this video. I have 16 years of experience treating patients in clinical settings. And I’ve treated tens of thousands of patients.

And the reason I have created this video is to share with you an approach that I take whenever I’m encountered with a patient who may have a complication related to peptic ulcer disease, and what approach do I take to manage those patients.

Also, another reason for sharing this approach is to let you know that whenever I’m taking a test and there’s a question about a peptic ulcer disease complication and its management, then I use the same approach to help get myself to the correct answer. Thank you so much, and let’s go ahead and get started.
