Answer

Treatment includes the following components:

  • Hemodynamic stabilization (eg, in cases of bleeding or perforation)
  • Pain management – Because chest pain of esophageal origin cannot be accurately differentiated from chest pain associated with CAD, prehospital protocols for the latter should be followed
  • Specific therapy, depending on the cause of the esophagitis and any complications
