severe vomiting threatens to rupture the esophagus

Severe vomiting caused by overeating and consuming excess alcohol can cause a rupture of the esophagus, warned gastroenterologist, therapist, candidate of medical sciences Alexey Paramonov. He drew attention to the dangerous consequences of New Year’s feasts in a conversation with KP. RU.

The doctor explained that severe vomiting can lead to rupture of the mucous membrane in the area where the esophagus meets the stomach. This condition is known as Mallory-Weiss syndrome. In this case, scarlet blood or even brown “coffee grounds” may appear in the vomit.

Paramonov emphasized that if such symptoms are detected, it is necessary to immediately seek medical help. He also recommended closely monitoring your health and if you have black, oily stools, low blood pressure and a rapid pulse, immediately consult a doctor.

These “red flags” indicate possible serious problems with the gastrointestinal tract and require immediate specialist intervention.
