Causes Of Intestinal Noise In Infants Aged 2 Months?
normal bowel sounds in infants aged 2 months originating ??
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Healthy bowel sounds in babies can range from 5 to 30 times per minute. Bowel intestine is produced from the sound of air and fluid in the intestine that moves because of intestinal peristalsis. This bowel noise, in the medical realm, can be realized as one (not the only) indicator in determining health status.
In infants, if bowel sounds increase, babies will often experience diarrhea. This condition can occur due to infections of the digestive system (for example due to viruses, parasites, or bacteria), infections of other organ systems, food poisoning, intolerance or malabsorption, inflammation of the intestine, metabolic disorders, and so on. Conversely, if bowel noise decreases, babies will often have difficulty defecating. The cause can be due to paralytic ileus, peritonitis, and so on.
However, as explained above, intestinal noise cannot be the only indicator in determining a person's health status. This assessment of bowel sounds is only accurate if done with a standardized instrument (stethoscope) and by competent medical personnel. Therefore, if you find signs of indigestion in your baby, you better check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician, right?
I hope this helps.
