Once you have identified and treated patients with hepatic encephalopathy (HE), work with them and/or their caregivers to come up with a management plan to help reduce the risk of recurrence by monitoring for symptoms and identifying an episode of overt HE (OHE).

A potential episode or occurrence in patients with OHE can be identified by testing/monitoring for the following symptoms1:
The LIVERHEALTHNOW tools in this section have been developed to help you recognize evidence of HE episodes so you can help reduce the risk of recurrence and even HE-related hospitalization. There are also tools to help patients and/or their caregivers monitor symptoms between medical visits.
You can add your organization logo to the health tools by following the instructions under the Customize button next to each tool. You can also save your tools to your Favorites for easier access.
