Application video

Use case: Positive HemoPill® finding (indication for immediate endoscopy and treatment)

Example 1: Detection of acute bleeding in the stomach

20 minutes after swallowing the HemoPill® acute, a significant increase in the HI value was observed. This indicated acute bleeding in the upper digestive tract. The examination using the HemoPill® was completed after 43 minutes and a gastroscopy was performed immediately. This showed a bleeding angiodysplasia in a gastrojejunal anastomosis, which was successfully treated.

Example 2: Detection of bleeding in the small intestine

The significant increase in the HI value after 2.5 hours was indication of bleeding in the middle digestive tract. The examination took a total of 9 hours. A subsequent targeted double balloon enteroscopy showed angiodysplasia in the small intestine, which was treated successfully.

Use case: Negative HemoPill® finding (postponing or avoiding emergency endoscopy)

Example 1: Excluding upper GI bleeding

No increase in the HI value was observed after the capsule was swallowed. Further differential diagnostics identified an aortic dissection as the cause of the anaemia detected in the emergency room. This meant that the patient did not need to undergo an endoscopy.
