Thank you for writing to us.
I am sorry to learn about your husband.
As a general rule, any person who starts throwing up blood should be taken to emergency right away.
There are a few reasons why I say that.
1. He may bleed so much that even the bleeding can be life threatening.
2. We need to stop the bleeding immediately by medications or by an endscopy and that can only be done by taking the patient to the emergency.
3. We need to find out exactly what is causing the bleeding. Although the most common cause of such bleeding is bleeding from an ulcer however there are other causes like liver failure
that must be ruled out.
The bottom line is that you need to rush him to the ER to save his life and to reach to a diagnosis.
