  1. aTotal-ALB and total-RBC: the total amount of albumin/RBC infusion during hospitalization;
  2. bThe average minimum value of albumin or hemoglobin during hospitalization;
  3. cPre-ALB and pre-RBC: the amount of albumin infusion before rebleeding occurrence. In patients without bleeding, the pre-ALB and pre-RBC equals the total-ALB and total-RBC
