Step 2 CK: Differentiating ileus from SBO

Hello! Short post.

SBO: Small bowel obstruction.

Both: Nausea, vomiting, abdominal distension

Ileus: Hypoactive bowel sounds
Dull and constant pain
Dilated bowel but no air fluid levels

SBO: Initially hyperactive, later hypoactive
Colicky abdominal pain
Air fluid levels seen

That's all!
Back to studying.
