After publication of the original article , it came to the authors’ attention that there were some errors affecting Tables 1 and 3. These errors do not affect the scientific conclusion of the study presented in the original article.
In Table 1, the Glasgow-Blatchford score in the Non-trauma group was mistakenly left blank. This should have read: ‘12 (11–14)’. Additionally, the abbreviations listed in the Table footnote were inconsistent with the abbreviations found in the Table itself. APACHE and ICU should not have been included in the footnote, and FFP (fresh frozen plasma) and PRBC (packed red blood cells) were omitted by mistake. A revised Table 1 is published in this erratum.
In Table 3, the ages of patients no. 17, 19 and 25 were incorrectly given in the Table. These ages should have been 64, 78 and 69 respectively. Also, the Diagnosis of patient no. 18 was incorrectly given as ‘Gastric ulcer’. This should have been ‘Duodenum ulcer’. A revised Table 3 is published in this erratum.
