Welcome to HCM,

His case requires evaluation as passing blood in vomitus is not normal.

It is possible that he might have acute gastritis or gastric ulcer or Oesophageal varices.

Go for ultra sound of upper abdomen and find out the source of bleeding.

Quit alcohol or smoking if he has these habits.

Give milk and liquid diet.

If bleeding is severe then consult Gastro enterologist.

Ok and bye.
