Functional gastroduodenal disorders. (1/11)

While widely used in research, the 1991 Rome criteria for the gastroduodenal disorders, especially symptom subgroups in dyspepsia, remain contentious. After a comprehensive literature search, a consensus-based approach was applied, supplemented by input from international experts who reviewed the report. Three functional gastroduodenal disorders are defined. Functional dyspepsia is persistent or recurrent pain or discomfort centered in the upper abdomen; evidence of organic disease likely to explain the symptoms is absent, including at upper endoscopy. Discomfort refers to a subjective, negative feeling that may be characterized by or associated with a number of non-painful symptoms including upper abdominal fullness, early satiety, bloating, or nausea. A dyspepsia subgroup classification is proposed for research purposes, based on the predominant (most bothersome) symptom: (a) ulcer-like dyspepsia when pain (from mild to severe) is the predominant symptom, and (b) dysmotility-like dyspepsia when discomfort (not pain) is the predominant symptom. This classification is supported by recent evidence suggesting that predominant symptoms, but not symptom clusters, identify subgroups with distinct underlying pathophysiological disturbances and responses to treatment. Aerophagia is an unusual complaint characterized by air swallowing that is objectively observed and troublesome repetitive belching. Functional vomiting refers to frequent episodes of recurrent vomiting that is not self-induced nor medication induced, and occurs in the absence of eating disorders, major psychiatric diseases, abnormalities in the gut or central nervous system, or metabolic diseases that can explain the symptom. The current classification requires careful validation but the criteria should be of value in future research.  (+info)

Aerophagia, gastric, and supragastric belching: a study using intraluminal electrical impedance monitoring. (2/11)

BACKGROUND: Patients with aerophagia are believed to have excessive belches due to air swallowing. Intraluminal impedance monitoring has made it possible to investigate the validity of this concept. METHODS: The authors measured oesophageal pH and electrical impedance before and after a meal in 14 patients with excessive belching and 14 healthy controls and identified patterns of air transport through the oesophagus. The size of the gastric air bubble was measured radiographically. In four patients prolonged oesophageal manometry was performed simultaneously. RESULTS: In all subjects, impedance tracings showed that a significant amount of air is propulsed in front of about a third of the swallow induced peristaltic waves. Two types of retrograde gas flow through the oesophagus (belch) were observed. In the first type air flowed from the stomach through the oesophagus in oral direction ("gastric belch"). In the second type air entered the oesophagus rapidly from proximal and was expulsed almost immediately in oral direction ("supragastric belch"). The incidence of air-containing swallows and gastric belches was similar in patients and controls but supragastric belches occurred exclusively in patients. There was no evidence of lower oesophageal sphincter relaxation during supragastric belches. Gastric air bubble size was not different between the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: In patients with excessive belching the incidence of gaseous reflux from stomach to oesophagus is similar to that in healthy subjects. Their excess belching activity follows a distinct pattern, characterised by rapid antegrade and retrograde flow of air in the oesophagus that does not reach the stomach.  (+info)

Aerophagia in adults: a comparison with functional dyspepsia. (3/11)

BACKGROUND: Aerophagia is a functional upper gastrointestinal disorder that has not previously been well described in a large patient group. AIMS: To describe the initial evaluation of patients who presented with symptoms of aerophagia at a tertiary medical centre. METHODS: A computerized search was used to identify all patients who were diagnosed with aerophagia at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester between 1996 and 2003 (n = 79). Individual medical charts were abstracted for information on the demographics, clinical features, co-morbid diagnoses, diagnostic workup and treatment. Information on presenting symptoms was also collected for a group of patients who were classified as having functional dyspepsia for comparison (n = 121). RESULTS: The median duration of symptoms in patients with aerophagia was 24 months. The most common symptoms were belching (56%), abdominal pain (19%), bloating (27%) and abdominal distension (19%). Patients with functional dyspepsia had a higher prevalence of reporting nausea, vomiting, early satiety, weight loss and abdominal pain (all P < 0.01, adjusting for age, gender and body mass index). Significantly more patients with aerophagia had anxiety (19%) than those with functional dyspepsia (6%, P < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Individuals with aerophagia experience prolonged upper gastrointestinal symptoms. Initial presenting symptoms appear to be distinctly different from those who have functional dyspepsia.  (+info)

Air swallowing caused recurrent ileus in Tourette's syndrome. (4/11)

This report describes an adolescent boy who has Tourette's syndrome and developed a subtle but significant increase in vocal tics after an 8-month respite. The increase in vocal tics was associated with an acute increase in psychological stressors and resulted in recurrent air swallowing, which, in turn, caused abdominal cramping, eructation, and flatus, eventually leading to aeroenteria. Air swallowing was recognized only after a second hospital admission for recurrent ileus. Air swallowing and associated symptoms were mitigated by reinstitution of psychopharmacologic treatment and an increase in the patient's self-awareness of the air-swallowing behavior. Clinically significant air swallowing has not been described previously in Tourette syndrome or a tic disorder. This case is important for pediatricians and pediatric gastroenterologists because either may be the first to evaluate a child or an adolescent with unexplained recurrent ileus. This report also documents the importance of the connection between the brain and the body.  (+info)

Air swallowing, belching, acid and non-acid reflux in patients with functional dyspepsia. (5/11)

BACKGROUND: Frequent belching is a common symptom in patients with functional dyspepsia with a reported incidence up to 80%. We hypothesized that patients with functional dyspepsia possibly have a higher frequency of belching than healthy subjects secondary to frequent air swallowing. AIM: To assess air swallowing, belching, acid and non-acid reflux patterns of patients with functional dyspepsia. METHODS: Combined 24-h oesophageal impedance and pH monitoring was performed in 10 functional dyspepsia patients and 10 controls. Analysis of the impedance-pH signals included incidence of air swallows, belching, acid and non-acid reflux. RESULTS: The incidence of air swallows in functional dyspepsia patients were significantly higher compared with controls (153 +/- 15 vs. 79 +/- 10, P < 0.001), while the incidence of liquid-only swallows were not significantly increased. The proportions of gas-containing reflux episodes (belches) and non-acid reflux episodes in functional dyspepsia patients were significantly higher when compared with controls (66.4 vs. 44.4%, P = 0.04 and 70.1 vs. 45.9%, P = 0.009, respectively). CONCLUSION: Patients with functional dyspepsia swallow air more frequently than controls and this is associated with an increased incidence of non-acid gaseous gastro-oesophageal reflux.  (+info)

Clinical review: long-term noninvasive ventilation. (6/11)

Noninvasive positive ventilation has undergone a remarkable evolution over the past decades and is assuming an important role in the management of both acute and chronic respiratory failure. Long-term ventilatory support should be considered a standard of care to treat selected patients following an intensive care unit (ICU) stay. In this setting, appropriate use of noninvasive ventilation can be expected to improve patient outcomes, reduce ICU admission, enhance patient comfort, and increase the efficiency of health care resource utilization. Current literature indicates that noninvasive ventilation improves and stabilizes the clinical course of many patients with chronic ventilatory failure. Noninvasive ventilation also permits long-term mechanical ventilation to be an acceptable option for patients who otherwise would not have been treated if tracheostomy were the only alternative. Nevertheless, these results appear to be better in patients with neuromuscular/-parietal disorders than in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This clinical review will address the use of noninvasive ventilation (not including continuous positive airway pressure) mainly in diseases responsible for chronic hypoventilation (that is, restrictive disorders, including neuromuscular disease and lung disease) and incidentally in others such as obstructive sleep apnea or problems of central drive.  (+info)

Clonazepam treatment of pathologic childhood aerophagia with psychological stresses. (7/11)

The treatment of pathologic aerophagia has rarely been discussed in the literature. In this retrospective study, the authors investigated the effects of clonazepam on the management of pathologic childhood aerophagia (PCA) with psychological stresses (PS), but not with mental retardation. Data from 22 consecutive PCA patients with PS (aged 2 to 10 yr), who had been followed up for over 1 yr, were reviewed. On the basis of videolaryngoscopic views, the authors observed that the pathology of aerophagia was the result of reflex-induced swallowing with paroxysmal openings of the upper esophageal sphincter due to unknown factors and also observed that these reflex-induced openings were subsided after intravenous low dose benzodiazepine administration. Hence, clonazepam was administered to treat paroxysmal openings in these PCA patients with PS. Remission positivity was defined as symptom-free for a consecutive 1 month within 6 months of treatment. The results of treatment in 22 PCA patients with PS were analyzed. A remission positive state was documented in 14.3% of PCA patients managed by reassurance, and in 66.7% of PCA patients treated with clonazepam (p=0.032). Thus, clonazepam may produce positive results in PCA with PS. Future studies by randomized and placebo-controlled trials are needed to confirm the favorable effect of clonazepam in PCA.  (+info)

Aerophagia and gastroesophageal reflux disease in patients using continuous positive airway pressure: a preliminary observation. (8/11)

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Aerophagia is a complication of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for sleep disordered breathing (SDB), whereupon air is forced into the stomach and bowel. Associated discomfort can result in CPAP discontinuation. We hypothesize that aerophagia is associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) via mechanisms involving GERD related lower esophageal sphincter (LES) compromise. METHODS: Twenty-two subjects with aerophagia and 22 controls, matched for age, gender, and body mass index, who were being treated with CPAP for SDB were compared in regard to clinical aspects of GERD, GERD associated habits, SDB severity as measured by polysomnography, and mean CPAP pressure. RESULTS: More subjects with aerophagia had symptoms of GERD (77.3% vs. 36.4%; p < 0.01) and were on GERD related medications (45.5% vs. 18.2%, p < 0.05) than controls. Regarding polysomnography, mean oxygen saturation percentages were lower in the aerophagia group than controls (95.0% vs. 96.5%, p < 0.05). No other differences were observed, including mean CPAP pressures. No one in the aerophagia group (vs. 27.3% of the control group) was a current tobacco user (p < 0.01). There was no difference in caffeine or alcohol use between the 2 groups. CONCLUSIONS: These results imply aerophagia is associated with GERD symptoms and GERD related medication use. This finding suggests a relationship between GERD related LES pathophysiology and the development of aerophagia in patients with SDB treated with CPAP.  (+info)

A third of the global population is thought to carry latent tuberculosis (TB) infection. In new research that may lead to novel antibiotics to treat TB, scientists have discovered that the process used by TB bacteria to translate many of their genes into proteins differs significantly from that of other commonly studied bacteria.. The study was led by Teresa Cortés and Douglas Young of the Medical Research Councils National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR; now part of the Francis Crick Institute). Their team found that during latent TB infection, many genes were missing the typical sequences used to indicate where translation of a protein should begin.. Latent TB infection means a person is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium that causes TB, but does not have active disease. These people are not contagious.. However, there is a risk that latent infection can change into active disease at a later stage - this is more likely in certain circumstances, including alongside ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Nonulcer dyspepsia. AU - Scolapio, J. S.. AU - Camilleri, M.. PY - 1996/4/22. Y1 - 1996/4/22. N2 - There is considerable confusion in the literature about the entity of nonulcer dyspepsia and its epidemiology, mechanisms, and management. In this review, we discuss the mechanisms and develop a strategy for diagnosis and management of nonulcer dyspepsia in the era of cost-containment. This analysis was based on a computerized literature search on epidemiology, pathophysiology, and management of nonulcer dyspepsia. Inconsistencies in the inclusion criteria of several studies result in disparities in the data from epidemiological and physiology-based studies. We propose that the inclusion criteria need to be unrestricted by the symptom of pain, and that epidemiological features must be refined further because recent data used pain/ discomfort as the dominant feature for identifying dyspepsia. The interplay between three factors (impaired motor and sensory functions, psychosocial ...
Belching and diarrhea may seem unrelated at times. Belching is the expulsion of gas through the mouth. This gas is from the upper digestive tract. Gas present in the lower tract is expelled as flatus rather than as a belch. Diarrhea on the hand is most commonly associated with a lower digestive tract problem, like conditions affecting the colon.. The majority of gas expelled with a belch (burp) is air. The swallowing of air (aerophagia) affects every person, although some people are affected to a greater degree like with eating too fast or with nasal congestion. The rest of the gas arises from chemical digestion, is produced by gastrointestinal bacteria and to a small degree is gas from the blood that is passed into the gut.. In diarrhea the water content of stool is higher than normal. Therefore stool cannot for a solid but soft consistency. This water is mainly drawn out from the body and into the small intestine and normally would be reabsorbed within the colon. The movement through the gut ...
The most common cause of belching is air that is trapped in the upper gut. This air is swallowed especially when eating, with chewing gum, cigarette smoking and eating and talking too fast. This air swallowing is known as aerophagia.. Apart from trapped gas, chemical processes with the action of digestive enzymes and the breakdown of food by bacteria in the gut are also sources of gas. Lower down, even gas in the bloodstream can pass out into the gut and contribute towards flatus. However, the gas passed out during belching is almost entirely trapped air.. Carbonated beverages and some foods that tend to increase gas production in the gut may also be responsible. Some of the common gassy foods include beans, cabbage and other vegetables, whole grains and legumes. Many other foods are also known to be gassy but not may be as much of a problem in every person.. ...

How to treat or prevent it? At first, the likelihood that the belches or flatuses are being caused by excessive air intake should be evaluated. To do so, one must avoid to eat too fast or while talking, to chew gum, drink beverage with gas, smoke, and drink with a pipe. Conscious people suffering from aerophagia can be warned in order to change such habits so as to avoid the symptoms. Nasal obstruction and neurological alterations that impair normal intake are also causes of excessive air intake. The digestion of some foods by intestinal bacteria leads to a greater gas production than others do. The fermentation in the bowel that leads to gas production may originate from lactose (available in milk and derivatives), fructose (available in fruit), some vegetal fibers and carbohydrates available in wheat, oats, corn and potato. Usually, the gas derived from fermentation of vegetables tends to be odorless, while that resulting from the digestion of meat is smelly. After the initial attempt at ...

Swallowing air may cause bloating, burping, gas, and abdominal pain. Swallowed air that is not released by burping passes through the digestive tract and is released as gas (flatus).. Babies often swallow air during feeding. It is important to burp your baby during and after feeding. Swallowed air may cause a baby to be upset and have colic behavior.. Aerophagia is a condition where large amounts of air are swallowed. It occurs most often in people who are very anxious or who have mental health problems. However, it also is seen in teenagers who want to show off their ability to burp loudly. You can avoid swallowing air.. ...
Most of the gas that is expelled as a burp is actually swallowed air. This process of swallowing air is known as aerophagia. While it too it considered normal within certain limits, excessive air swallowing is a sign of some underlying problem. The rest of the gas may come from gas itself in carbonated beverages, as a byproduct of chemical digestion or is produced by bacteria in the gut.. The combination of these gases in addition to the foods that were most recently consumed gives burps the odor that it has, which can vary at different times of the day and with different meals. Burps do not have a pleasant odor. At best it is has little to no odor. Sometimes though it has an extremely foul smell but the odor of the burp in these instances could be a symptom of certain digestive disorders and diseases.. ...

H. pylori infection has close associations with the development of peptic ulcer diseases as well as gastric cancer, gastric adenoma, and gastric MALT lymphoma. The association of the host genetics with the susceptibility to various gastroduodenal disorders has been intensively investigated in the pathogenesis of peptic ulcer and gastric cancer by H. pylori infection .. In chronic active gastritis induced by H. pylori infection, activated neutrophils and mononuclear cells produce several pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. In fact, levels of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines are elevated in gastric mucosa infected with H. pylori..

Experts believe[who?] that a major cause of abnormal bloating is excessive eating and air swallowing, known as aerophagia. Other causes of bloating include inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, functional dyspepsia or transient constipation. In rare cases, bloating may occur in individuals who have milk intolerance (lactose intolerance), parasite infections like giardia, food poisoning (bacteria), celiac disease, severe peptic ulcer disease, bowel obstruction or after certain types of abdominal surgery. Heart failure and cirrhosis are also a common cause of distension. In both of these disorders, fluid accumulates in the abdomen and creates a sensation of fullness. Abdominal distension can also be a symptom of ovarian cancer. Women are more prone to bloating and often identify these symptoms during menstruation.[2] Some individuals who develop distension may have either poor motility of their intestines or may be ...

As C.S. Lewis has pointed out, if our minds are nothing more than our brains, and our brains are nothing more than chemical reactions, and if these chemical reactions were caused by nothing more than undirected, purposeless, mindless processes, what rational basis do we have for actually believing anything our minds spit out or cough up -- if we are molecular machines, chemistry-at-work, they are, at heart, no different than a belch ...
On the third re-laparotomy, the silo was removed and the decision was made to definitively close his abdomen. Fascial suture was not possible because the central section remained with an insurmountable gap of 6 cm. We performed the posterior part of the components separation technique (CST) described by Ramirez et al. [4]. Longitudinal incisions of the two posterior rectal sheaths parallel and near his linea alba were made. We bluntly separated these sheaths from his rectus muscles, paying attention not to disturb the neurovascular bundles at the lateral rectal borders. This led to a good mobilization of the two rectal myofascial complexes (RMFCs), allowing apposition under acceptable tension. We used the Kloppel interrupted suture technique, and placed four Smead-Jones internal retention sutures. Our patient made an uneventful recovery, with the wound healing by primary intention.. The sample of the peritoneal exudate for culture and sensitivity taken during the initial operation did not grow ...

In the last few weeks I woke Im choking to acid in my throat I ate before going to bed, this has never happen to me before. Yesterday I got the burning sensation behind my breastbone, and when I push on it, well it hurts. But the real thing that bothers me is the feeling there is something going up and down my esphagus (sorry for the spelling) I belch and belch and still it feels like there is food in my throat tube, and when I eat or drink it goes down so slow like its going to get stuck! I have had occasional indigestion from time to time, and 2 years ago I got a really bad case when I ate a spicey pizza. It took a week for the burning to stop in my throat. Can anyone tell me please what this may be, Im confused on the various things it could be they all sound the same! Any help would be appreciated! Thank you in advance! How long can a bout of this last I thought heartburn indigestion only lasted a few hours its been 2 days with this uncomfortable food feeling going up and down, and also ...

NOTE: These are, to me, respective equations of our Right Now. We all struggle to make ends meet in a world where to Rise is almost considered an insult. What thing Wicked this way comes, lurching toward Skyscrapered Babylon? Ugly or Beautiful, the best we can hope for is that it will be entertaining…and maybe even line our pockets with a bit of God. OF GOVERNMENT: Two politicians are behind their respective podiums, deep in a debate about the "issues", lobbying for themselves. The Democrat, Asmodea, belches about his favorite topic, Welfare. "Youre all a bunch of slaves, you know. Better to sit at home and produce soldiers for the Machine. Get a birth license, and be a True Citizen." Romstrain rebuts: "Slaves, of course, but youre supposed to be working for ME! Im sick of paying you to sit on your asses. This guy," he says, pointing at Asmodea, "hes not good, hes out to steal your ethics and suck your soul. I just want your cash. Gimme the cash!" He makes a grab for Asmodea, and Asmodea ...

Dear Lori, I was just scanning all the messages as I am in a rush and looking for a work related e mail when I read the first three lines of yours and had a good laugh.
