Once you have identified 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).

An episode or occurrence in patients with OHE can be identified by testing/monitoring for the following symptoms:
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 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 resources and create favorite links of the tools.
