Gastric bypass surgery refers to a surgical procedure in which the stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower “remnant” pouch and then the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both. Following the procedure the medical staff should avoid administering stomach damaging Non-Steroidal (NSAID) drugs such as aspirin and the non-insertion of a blind NG tube which might puncture your stomach.
Surgeons have developed several different ways to reconnect the intestine, thus leading to several different gastric bypass (GBP) procedures. Any Gastric Bypass Procedure leads to a marked reduction in the functional volume of the stomach, accompanied by an altered physiological and physical response to food.
The operation is prescribed to treat morbid obesity (defined as a body mass index greater than 40), type 2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, and other comorbid conditions. Bariatric surgery is the term encompassing all of the surgical treatments for morbid obesity, not just gastric bypasses, which make up only one class of such operations. The resulting weight loss, typically dramatic, markedly reduces comorbidities. The long-term mortality rate of gastric bypass patients has been shown to be reduced by up to 40%
At the time of an accident or other medical catastrophe, Emergency Medical Personnel may have to provide you with some form of emergency life-saving treatment.A Medical ID Bracelet, Medical ID Dog Tag or some other form of medical identification that identifies your surgical procedure may prevent inappropriate and harmful treatment decisions from being started. Some considerations that emergency medical staff should avoid with the gastric bypass patient include administering stomach damaging Non-Steroidal (NSAID) drugs such as aspirin, the non-insertion of a blind NG tube which might puncture your stomach, and the alert notification recommendation of avoiding many sugar based foods (Without the bracelet for example, it might be easy to confuse symptoms of sugar overload experienced by the gastric bypass patient with that of diabetes).
