27 Possible Causes for Complete Blood Count Abnormal, Hyperactive Bowel Sounds

  • Small Bowel Obstruction

    Obtain electrolytes, complete blood count, amylase, lipase. CT scan consistent with Ileus r/o cause: drugs, infection, pancreatitis, electrolyte abnormality.[] On the other hand, if very hyperactive bowel sounds are heard they are indicative of mechanical obstruction.[] Signs Vital Sign s: Dehydration vs SIRS Criteria ( Sepsis ) Sinus Tachycardia Hypotension Bowel sounds Initial: High pitched, hyperactive bowel sounds Later: Hypoactive or[]

  • Graft-versus-Host-Disease

    bowel sounds may accompany secretory diarrhea of acute GVHD; in severe ileus, the abdomen is silent and appears distended Neuromuscular – Findings of myasthenia gravis, polymyositis[] […] buccal and labial mucosae in chronic GVHD Pulmonary – Prolonged expiratory breathing phase (wheezes) from bronchiolitis obliterans GI – Diffuse abdominal tenderness with hyperactive[]

  • Diverticular Abscess

    BACKGROUND: Corticosteroids and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are widely used for the treatment of rheumatic conditions, but their gastrointestinal damage significantly limits their use. Sigmoid diverticular abscess perforation (SDAP) is a very serious complication of diverticular disease. OBJECTIVE: To[…][]

  • Anaphylaxis

    Anaphylaxis is a serious allergic or hypersensitivity reaction, which is rapid in onset and sometimes can prove fatal. Although H2-antihistamines are often administered for emergency treatment in anaphylaxis, there is uncertainty about their effectiveness in this disease. To assess the benefits and harms of[…][]

  • Malignant Carcinoid Syndrome

    BACKGROUND: Somatostatin analogues are the mainstay of therapy for malignant carcinoid syndrome. There is clear evidence that the once monthly intramuscular formulation, Octreotide LAR, controls symptoms of carcinoid syndrome, and recent data also suggests an antitumour effect. There is limited data on prolonged[…][]

  • Tropical Sprue

    Tropical sprue is a rare acquired disease, probably of infectious etiology, characterized by malabsorption and megaloblastic anemia. Diagnosis is clinical and by small-bowel biopsy. Treatment is with tetracycline and folate for 6 mo. Tropical sprue occurs chiefly in the Caribbean, southern India, and Southeast Asia,[…][]

  • Shigella Enteritis

    The in vitro bacteriostatic effect of sulfonamides against organisms of the genus Shigella together with the clinical efficacy of the drug in this disease has been amply demonstrated. 1 The soluble, easily absorbed sulfonamides such as sulfadiazine have been shown to be superior to the enteric preparations such as[…][]

  • Upper Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage

    Diagnostic Testing Labs A complete blood count should be obtained to evaluate for the degree of blood loss as well as for excluding thrombocytopenia as a contributing factor[] Bowel Sounds Hematemesis Large volume, coffee ground or brownish Emesis Contrast with Hemoptysis (cough with smaller volume, bright red, frothy Sputum ) Nasogastric aspirate[] […] perforation Bowel sounds Hyperactive bowel sounds usual - blood in proximal gut stimulates peristalsis Normal bowel sounds suggest lower GI bleeding Hypoactive bowel sounds[]

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

    blood cell count with differential to screen for anemia, inflammation, and infection A comprehensive metabolic panel to evaluate for metabolic disorders and to rule out dehydration[] The bowel sounds may vary depending on whether the patient has constipation (bowel sounds may be hypoactive) or diarrhea (bowel sounds may be hyperactive).[] […] electrolyte abnormalities in patients with diarrhea Stool examinations for ova and parasites, enteric pathogens, leukocytes, Clostridium difficile toxin, and possibly Giardia[]

  • Large Bowel Obstruction

    Complete blood count (CBCs) to monitor white blood cell count. Daily basic metabolic panel to monitor and correct electrolyte abnormalities. D. Long-term management.[] At first, enteric stimuli resulting from the obstruction cause an increase in propulsive activity, causing hyperactive bowel sounds.[] Hyperactive, high-pitched bowels sounds at the beginning and then hypoactive bowel sounds as obstruction progresses and bowel muscles fatigue. Tachycardia. Fever.[]
