Understanding pathophysiology (6 th ed.) St. Louis, MO: Mosby. Lifestyle changes Antacids H2-receptor antagonists Proton pump inhibitors Triple therapy (PPI’s & two antibiotics) Surgical/invasive interventions Disorder: Gastritis Pathophysiology The gastric mucosa sustains injury as a result of overwhelming production of gastric acid and digestive enzymes. In patients taking NSAID’s and aspirin have reduced prostaglandin production resulting in an inferior protective mucous layer to protect the stomach lining. H-pylori bacteria initiate secretion of factors and toxins that provoke an inflammatory response in the cells of the gastric mucosa causing ulcers. Risk Factors NSAID/Aspirin use Alcohol use Drug use Stress Eating spicy/acidic foods Smoking Treatment/Management
