Small Bowel Obstruction (SBO) Signs & Symptoms, & Why They Occur
Small bowel obstructions (SBO) are mechanical blockages or occlusions of the small intestine. They can occur due to the small intestine twisting or “kinking” due to an intra-abdominal adhesion. When an SBO occurs, they cause gastrointestinal contents to “back-up” prior to the blockage, leading to a host of signs and symptoms, which we discuss in this lesson.
