The intestines undergo an augmentation in peristalsis and borborygmi are heard.
It is on this roughage or waste material that intestinal movement or peristalsis depends.
peristalsis is stimulated by the giving of water and fruit beverages as soon as it is advisable to give anything by mouth.
If, however, cold increases pain and peristalsis, it should be abandoned.
For is it not indicative of peristalsis that always when the upper parts of the gullet contract the lower parts dilate?
In this stage the peristalsis of the gullet is sufficient to force the food through the cardia.
In its modern significance, peristalsis, however, also includes the movements of longitudinal fibres.
I believe you can imagine the result, elimination is prevented because of the stoppage of peristalsis.
Otherwise, the peristalsis it awakens may only aggravate the danger.
What is needed particularly is exercise directed to the strengthening of the abdominal muscles, and the increase of peristalsis.
peristalsis per·i·stal·sis (pěr'ĭ-stôl'sĭs, -stāl'-)
n. pl. per·i·stal·ses (-sēz)
The wavelike muscular contractions of the intestine or other tubular structure that propel the contents onward by alternate contraction and relaxation. Also called vermicular movement.
The wavelike muscular contractions in tubular structures, especially organs of the digestive system such as the esophagus and the intestines. Peristalsis is characterized by alternate contraction and relaxation, which pushes ingested food through the digestive tract towards its release at the anus. Worms propel themselves through peristaltic movement.
The wavelike, involuntary muscular contractions that move food through the digestive system.
