Journal Title: Medpulse International Journal of Pediatrics - Year 2019, Vol 9, Issue 2


Background: An endoscopy (looking inside) is used in medicine to look inside the body.1The endoscopy procedure uses an endoscope to examine the interior of a hollow organ or cavity of the body. Aims and Objectives: To Study Laboratory profile of the patients undergoing upper GI endoscopy at tertiary health care centre. Methodology: This was a cross-sectional study carried at tertiary health care centre referred for Upper GI Endoscopy during one year period from January 2017 to January 2018, in the one year period there were 86 patients referred for the Laboratory investigations were included into the study. All the patients were undergone all necessary laboratory tests like CBC, LFT, KFT and results were entered to excel sheet and analyzed by Excel software for windows 10. Results: In Our study we have seen that The average age of the patients was 11.56 ±6.47 Yrs. and range was 1-55 Yrs. (Min –Max) The most common provisional diagnosis were Hematemesis under investigation - 22.22%, followed by Mass per abdomen - in 15.87%, Foreign body in 13.49%, Vomiting under investigation in 11.11%, Fever under investigation in 10.32%, Ascitis under investigation in 8.73%, Cirrhosis with portal Hypertension in 5.56%, Upper GI obstruction in 4.76%, Dysphagia under investigation in 4.76%, Malena under investigation in 3.17%. Most of the patients were anemic i.e. 3-6 gm% were 34.88%, followed by Normal 9-12 gm% were 33.72%, 12-15gm% were 18.60% and 6-9gm% were 12.79%. Majority were having the TLC count in the normal range (4500-11000) were 59.80%, 22.55% were having leukocytosis and 17.65% were decreased count (<4500), Except PT (Prothrombin Time) - 16.84 ± 5.01 and INR (International Normalized Ratio) 1.66± 5.01 all other Parameters were within normal limits i.e. BT (Bleeding Time) was 2.45±0.51, CT (Clotting Time) was 4.66±0.68, SGPT was 36.59 ± 47.08, SGOT was 52.24 ± 48.97, Alk. Phospatase was 127.45±90.76 Total Bilirubin -0.24 ± 2.17. Direct Bilirubin Was - 0.56 ± 1.68, BUN was 27.61 ± 25.20, Sr. Creatnine was 0.77± 0.48 Conclusion: The laboratory investigations are important in Upper GI endoscopy not only to prevent the complications of procedure but to support the diagnosis done by It.
