53 Possible Causes for Hyperactive Bowel Sounds, Hypokalemia

  • Small Bowel Obstruction

    Hypovolemic (from vomiting) Hypochloremic (from vomiting) Hypokalemia (from vomiting) Alkalosis (from vomiting) What must be ruled out on physical exam in pts with SBO?[] On the other hand, if very hyperactive bowel sounds are heard they are indicative of mechanical obstruction.[] Bowel Bowel dilates proximal to obstruction Flatus and Bowel Movement s cease Dehydration results from Vomiting, minimal absorption, and bowel edema Metabolic Alkalosis and Hypokalemia[]

  • Viral Gastroenteritis

    Unlike other groups, hypokalemia persisted in the Gatorade group.[] At admission and 24 and 48 hours later, hypokalemia was observed in 7, 10, and 8 patients with Gatorade; 3, 2, and 1 with N-ORS; and 2, 2, and 1 with Pedialyte, respectively[]

  • VIPoma

    Mild hypokalemia is common and encountered in a multitude of diseases, but severe hypokalemia leading to rhabdomyolysis is relatively rare.[] Hypokalemia and impaired glucose tolerance occur in 50% of patients. Achlorhydria is also a feature.[] We describe a rare case of a pancreatic VIPoma diagnosed in a patient presenting with watery diarrhea, hypokalemia, and achlorhydria, the so-called WDHA or Verner-Morrison[]

  • Short Bowel Syndrome

    Hypokalemia, however, is a potentially underrecognized cause of rhabdomyolysis.[] It features weight loss, diarrhoea, fatty stools (steatorrhoea), and deficiencies of sodium, potassium and trace elements (hyponatremia, and hypokalemia).[] Laboratory findings often reveal anemia, hypomagnesemia, hyponatremia and hypokalemia.[]

  • Shigella Enteritis

    […] from 125 to 130meq/lit and in control group 4 patients (8%) had electrolyte imbalances, three of which had hyponatremia ranging between 125-130meq/lit and one of which had hypokalemia[]

  • Zollinger Ellison Syndrome

    […] after gastric surgery edema at anastomosis (surgical connection areas) adhesions blocking the distal loop metabolic causes of delayed gastric emptying after gastric surgery hypokalemia[] 症候群 METABOLIC DISORDERS 代謝性疾患 39.Alcoholic Hypoglycemia アルコール性低血糖 40.Hypercalcemia 高カルシウム血症 41.Hyperkalemia 高カリウム血症 42.Hypernatremia 高ナトリウム血症 43.Hypocalcemia 低カルシウム血症 44.Hypokalemia[]

  • Acute Gastroenteritis

    It is known that these patients are more susceptible to hypokalemia than normal individuals.[] hypokalemia.[] Hypokalemia was present in 15% (30) cases and 85% (170) cases had Normokalemia.[]

  • Decreased Bowel Sounds

    […] before declaring an absence of bowel sounds. [1] Differential Diagnosis Common Causes Intestinal obstruction Adynamic ileus Intestinal ischemia Peritonitis Acute appendicitis Hypokalemia[] Decreased or absent bowel sounds often indicate constipation. Increased ( hyperactive ) bowel sounds can sometimes be heard even without a stethoscope.[] Aside from digestion, there are other causes of bowel sounds including: Trauma Infection Hernias Blood clots Hypokalemia – potassium deficiency Tumors Intestinal obstruction[]

  • Recurrent Small Bowel Obstruction

    ., hypokalemia ) Neurosurgical procedures (e.g., spinal surgery) Vascular (e.g., mesenteric infarct ) Inflammation of intra-abdominal organs (e.g., appendicitis, cholecystitis[] Signs Vital Sign s: Dehydration vs SIRS Criteria ( Sepsis ) Sinus Tachycardia Hypotension Bowel sounds Initial: High pitched, hyperactive bowel sounds Later: Hypoactive or[] Bowel Bowel dilates proximal to obstruction Flatus and Bowel Movement s cease Dehydration results from Vomiting, minimal absorption, and bowel edema Metabolic Alkalosis and Hypokalemia[]

  • Intestinal Obstruction

    It is exacerbated by electrolyte disorders, particularly hypokalemia. Symptoms are similar to that of mechanical obstruction.[] Examination revealed hyperactive bowel sounds with scant fecal matter on rectal examination.[] Lower intestinal obstructions cause metabolic acidosis due to impaired bicarbonate ion reabsorption, which is further aggravated by hypokalemia.[]
