Abdominal pain can be characterized as cramping, dull, or aching and as either constant or intermittent. Cramping abdominal pain is characterized by pain that increases in intensity in short waves to a maximum and then abruptly ceases for a period of complete absence of pain. Repetition of the pain occurs at intervals.   2. Ray BS, Neill CL. Abdominal visceral sensations in man. Ann Surg ; 3. Bingham JR, tngelfinger FJ, Smithwick RH.

A 78 year old man with no significant past medical history presents to his primary care physician with 4 days of right shoulder pain. The pain is located over the acromioclavicular joint. The pain is worse at night with lying down and associated with shortness of breath. He states that the pain is better during the day. He is an avid ping pong player and does not have pain or shortness of. The stomach of dog or cat makes up 70% of its digestive tract. An herbivore has smaller stomach because it eats smaller amount of food more frequently. The stomach of a horse makes up only about 8% of its digestive tract (a ruminant however, has an enormous stomach with several chambers, for digestion f cellulose by bacterial and protozoa.

RIGLER (From the Departments of Anatomy and Radiology, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis) (Received for publication J ) The observations recorded in this article were originally by-products.

Visceral pain is typically vague, dull, and nauseating. It is poorly localized and tends to be referred to areas corresponding to the embryonic origin of the affected structure.

An example is a patient with liver problems that experiences referred pain in the neck or just below the scapula. Characteristics: Poorly localized; The pain is usually constant; Review the most common causes of abdominal pain that EMT's and Paramedics encounter in the field.

Epigastric region: stomach, duodenum, biliary tract (foregut) 2. Periumbilical: small bowel, appendix, cecum (midgut) 3. Suprapubic: colon, sigmoid, GU tract (hindgut) * midline *Steady ache or vague discomfort to excruciating or colicky pain; Poorly localized. Referred pain occurs at distant sites that are innervated at approximately the same levels as the disrupted abdominal organ.

This type of pain travels, or refers, from the primary site and becomes highly localized at the distant site. The accompanying illustrations show common clinical patterns and referents of pain.

Comes from the esophagus, stomach, duodenum, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, or spleen. Fecal Impaction. Stools may be of small caliber, sometimes described as toothpaste-like.

Flank Pain. It is more localized and is described as a sharp pain. These are patients with localized peritonitis indicative of appendicitis, rupture, or perforation. Abdominal pain occurs when mechanical or chemical stimuli trigger the pain receptors in the abdomen. Stretch is the primary mechanical stimulus.

Other mechanical stimuli, such as expansion, contraction, compression, pulling, and twisting of the viscera, also induce pain. Types of Abdominal Pain Visceral pain. Chronic abdominal pain is pain that is present for more than 3 months. It may be present all the time (chronic) or come and go (recurring).

Chronic abdominal pain usually occurs in children beginning after age 5 years. About 10 to 15% of children aged 5 to 16 years, particularly those aged 8 to 12 years, have chronic or recurring abdominal pain. The acid test of Waiter Palmer precipitated the pain, and a strict ulcer)"(~g;imen gave prompt and lasting relief.

Although the biliary tract, pancreas, stomach, and duodenum derive their sensory innervation from the 4th to 9th thoracic segments, in these two patients the pain was localized to two segments. Most Common Causes of Upper Left Abdominal Pain Peptic Ulcer Disease.

Ulcers in the stomach and duodenum are top causes. They can be caused by a myriad of problems, most related to use of Anti-inflammatory medication or steroids. Helicobacter Pylori is an infection that causes ulcers as well and requires antacid as well as antibiotic therapy.

-Gradual onset of lower lumbar, groin, and abdominal pain-Rupture associated with sudden onset of severe, constant abdominal pain. May radiate to the lower back, flank, or pelvis-Testicular pain-Mottled or spotty abdominal skin-Pale, cool, clammy and possibly cyanotic skin in.

The post-hypothalamic center with sympathetic fibers predominating is believed to be the site for excitation of hemorrhagic states. Although no specific intrabrain lesion is demonstrated, these five cases of acute hemorrhagic and erosive lesions of the stomach and duodenum in aged patients, four over 70 years, associated solely and NEW SERIES VOL.

Generalized pain -- This means that you feel it in more than half of your belly. This type of pain is more typical for a stomach virus, indigestion, or gas. If the pain becomes more severe, it may be caused by a blockage of the intestines.

Localized pain -- This is pain. duodenal contractions.3 A similar localization of pain from faradic stimulation of the stomach or the duodenum of human subjects was noted by Boyden.4 Animals appear to experience hunger after extirpation of the stomach, denervation of the stomach and also after vagotomy, splanch-nicotomy and celiac ganglionectomy.

This and other related. Visceral pain is a common finding of patients who require medical attention. Yet, neurophysiological mechanism underlying visceral pain, associated referred pain, and parietal pain have not been vigorously pursued (Cervero, a).

Abdominal pain originating from the abdominal musculature can be diagnosed by finding a focal area of abdominal tenderness that remains unchanged or increases with abdominal muscle contraction (Carnett's sign). (See "Chronic abdominal wall pain"). Abdominal migraine — Recurrent abdominal pain may occur in patients with abdominal migraine.

Obtain ECG in elderly and those w/ cardiac risk factors presenting with abdominal pain. A patient with appendicitis by H&P does not need a CT scan to confirm dx, they need surgery. The use of abdominal US or CT may help evaluate patients over the age of 50 with unexplained abdominal or flank pain for the presence of AAA.

Chest pain points to coronary insufficiency, dissecting aneurysm, or may be of esophageal or pleural origin; but chest pain may also be the result of somatic rib-cage dysfunction, costochondral or costovertebral strain, or be referred pain from the gallbladder, stomach, duodenum, or pancreas.

Studies using P2X2 receptor knockout mice showed that P2X2 receptors contribute to fast synaptic excitation of myenteric neurons in small intestine [].

Moderate pain in the epigastrium (the mid-upper abdomen) is present with ulcer disease of the stomach or duodenum, early appendicitis, hiatal hernia and gallbladder disease. A sudden, complete obstruction of the superior mesenteric artery, a major branch of the abdominal aorta that supplies a large part of the intestine, is an emergency.

A person with such an obstruction becomes seriously ill and has severe abdominal pain. is a rapid access, point-of-care medical reference for primary care and emergency clinicians.

Started inthis collection now contains interlinked topic pages divided into a tree of 31 specialty books and chapters. Abdominal Pain is classified by origin of pain from different organ systems.

Classification of Abdominal Pain by Systems include gastrointestinal system, bile system, liver, pancreatic, renal and urological, gynecological or obstetric, referred pain, metabolic disturbances, blood vessels, immune systems, idiopathic.

Abdominal pain is a frequent reason for consultation especially in young adults and elderly subjects. It is a symptom rather than a disease. The causes of pain may range from mild, non-significant, exaggerated peristalsis to emergent appendicitis or perforation.

At times, abdominal pain may be the only symptom of heart attack.Pain site and radiation and the effect of various foods were studied prospectively in a consecutive series of patients with chronic upper abdominal pain.

Patients followed for less than one year were excluded unless peptic ulcer or abdominal malignancy had been diagnosed or laparotomy had been carried out.
