McBurney's Point
Point of tenederness in acute appendicitis
Strangulated hernia
bowel is trapped or twiested on itself at the point of herniation. Blood supply is cut off - gangrene
Symptoms Ulcerative Colitis
Chronic inflamation of mucosa of rectum and colon, chronic/severe diarrhea
Crohns Disease
Chronic inflammation of all layers of bowel wall anywhere in the digestive tract, severe diarrhea and bowel obstruction.
Rx for Gastroenteritis
control symptoms, maintain fluid level and electrolyte balance, education

Mechanical Intestinal obstruction
Tumors, foreign bodies, impaction, strictures, compression, twisint, intussusception, strangulations.
Diverticulosis vs Diverticulitis
Weak points in the muscular layer of the large intestines form outpouches. Then these become inflamated from infection - perforation of bowel.
Assessment for Colorectal Cancer
Hx/Px, stool specimens, barium enema, signmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, CT Scan.
Why do antibiotics cause Pseudomembranous entercoloitis
It destroys the natural protective intestinal flora and allows infection with Clostridium Difficile. Bowel inflames, ulcerates, necrosis.
