Responding to Your Babys Cry A Few Specific Suggestions

Though no research has yet revealed the cause of fretfulness or colic, speculation has focused lately on the contrast between traditional societies in developing countries in which there is nearly constant bodily contact between mother and infant and very little crying, and our industrial society in which the infant is insulated from mother in a crib and, as far as possible, from sounds, in a separate room. This suggests that parents should not be worrying about spoiling in the first three months but should try carrying the fretful or colicky baby in a canvas or cloth carrier, or swinging her in a mechanical swing or be treating her to music, not just when fussing but during much of the day.

Transverse Descending And Sigmoid Colon

The transverse colon ends at the spleen, where the colon bends as the left colic (splenic) flexure (Figure 10-2A). The colon continues vertically down the left wall of the abdomen as the descending colon. The parietal peritoneum covers only the anterior surface of the descending colon, and thus the descending colon is considered a retroperitoneal structure. A depression between the lateral surface of the descending colon and the abdominal wall is known as the left paracolic gutter. Branches of the left colic artery supplying the descending colon enter the bowel on its medial surface. As such, it is possible to surgically mobilize the descending colon by cutting the peritoneum along the left paracolic gutter without injuring major vessels or lymphatics. The transverse colon is part of both the midgut (supplied by left and middle colic arteries, branches of the superior mesen- teric artery) and the hindgut (supplied by left colic arteries, branches of the inferior mesenteric artery)....

Microbial activity in the hindgut

The microorganisms in the hindgut are very specific to the type of food eaten by the horse and also to the pattern of meals eaten when the horse is fed concentrates. Changing the diet suddenly can result in the death of large numbers of microorganisms that were digesting the old foodstuff and an insufficient number capable of digesting the new foodstuff. Such changes in diet can result in impaction, colic, laminitis and swollen legs.

The Arrival of the New Baby

Caring for a new baby is not all that different from caring for a one-, two-, or three-month old with two big exceptions. By two or three months the parents will have overcome a lot of the painful insecurity that comes from inexperience. And by three months the fret fulness and colic that so many babies show at first will have decreased a lot or disappeared. Is the crying due to hunger That's the hardest question to answer. If you are trying to get started on breastfeeding, you want to stimulate the breasts with frequent feedings. On the other hand if you have a newborn baby who is fretful off and on, irrespective of when the last breast-feeding occurred or how much was taken, then there is no way of telling for sure whether the fretful-ness, fussing, and crying means hunger or not. Colic,'' which is hard crying in the late afternoon and the early evening, is much easier to diagnose because it often comes in approximately the same four-hour period each day.

Toxicity in Young Children A Special Case

Many aromatherapy books give dangerous advice on the treatment of babies and children, for example, 5-10 drops of chamomile oil three times a day in a little warmed milk given to their babies to treat colic with no indication as to which of the three commercially available chamomile oils is to be used and because, depending on the dropper size, the dose could easily approach the oral LD50 for the English and German chamomile oils, this could result in a fatality. Peppermint, often mentioned, could possibly be given by mothers in the form of oil, and has been known to kill a 1-week-old baby (Evening Standard, 1998). Dosages given in terms of drops can vary widely according to the size of the dropper in an essential oil.

Intestinal obstruction

Intestinal obstruction may have many causes, but the commonest is adhesions due to previous disease or surgery. Tumours (especially in the colon), hernias and Crohn's disease (especially in the small bowel) are other common causes. The patient may have a previous history, and typically presents with colicky abdominal pain and distension. The bowel sounds on auscultation are said to be high-pitched and 'tinkling'. The supine plain

Prevention and Control

It may be that the nonspecificity of the lead intoxication syndrome confused earlier diagnosticians because other conditions can simulate some of lead's toxic effects. The mine fumes that several Greco-Roman period authors held responsible for lead miners' health problems were perhaps the obvious and unpleasant sulfur dioxide odors emitted by galena ore rather than by lead compounds. Yet Pliny even complained specifically that the practice of adulterating wine (adding lead to improve the flavor) produces nerve injury manifested by paralyzed, dangling hands. His contemporary, the physician Dios-corides, clearly described colic and renal failure resulting from drinking the lead oxide compound called litharge. Most ancient miners were slaves whose ailments may not have been treated by physicians. It is, of course, possible that Romans were not exposed to as much lead as we presume today and that a lack of concern by Roman physicians simply reflects a low frequency of lead poisoning in...

Six to Sixteen Months Demanding and Walking

Some babies develop a resistance to going to sleep unless they are walked. They may have started out as a colicky baby in the first three months, then gradually got over the colic, but have become used to being walked and carried around until late at night. If you put the baby down, she Instantly wakes and demands to be walked. The guilty parent gives in and continues to carry the baby, worried that she may still be in pain. Tt's best not to heroine a slave to your baby's demands to be carried for hours before going to bed. You should put her in her own bed. Make sure she is comfortable then turn out the light and leave. The first night she will scream for thirty minutes, the second night ten to twelve minutes, then by the third night she will get used to the idea and go to sleep without crying. It's hard for parents to do, but it will work most of the time if the parents are firm.

The Loneliness Of The Obstetrician

A drain was left in the abdomen. An hour later, it was evident that there was major intra-abdominal hemorrhage. The drainage bottle had filled and been emptied twice, and the abdomen was distended, tense and tender. Unfortunately, the general surgeon had departed for the weekend and was not contactable. When the obstetrician returned, the patient was in a desperate condition, with major cardiovascular collapse. The anesthetist had inserted a subclavian line in order to obtain good venous access, and in doing so had inadvertently caused a pneumothorax. He was therefore inserting a chest drain. Once this had been accomplished and transfusion had restored the blood pressure, a laparotomy was carried out by the obstetrician. A small arterial bleeder was found at the ileo-colic anastomosis and was easily dealt with. The patient, who was the wife of a solicitor, made an uncomplicated recovery. The obstetrician expected that he might find a legal suit...

Nongynecologic Laparoscopic Procedures Cholecystectomy

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy continues to be the most common laparoscopic general surgical procedure performed during pregnancy (49). Some recommend that the initial management of symptomatic cholelithiasis should be nonoperative during pregnancy (74). However, this management strategy has been associated with a high recurrence of symptoms leading to hospitalization (50). In addition, nonoperative management of symptomatic cholelithiasis increases the risk of gallstone pancreatitis up to 13 , which leads to fetal loss in 10 to 60 of cases (75-77). Nonoperative management has also been associated with higher incidences of spontaneous abortions, preterm labor, and preterm delivery compared to those undergoing cholecystectomy (69). Arguments for early laparoscopic cholecystectomy include the high incidence of recurrence of symptoms in patients presenting with biliary colic, the potential complication of acute cholecystitis, and the severe complication of gallstone pancreatitis. One...

Retardation, and a characteristic EEG pattern known as hypsarrhythmia. The syndrome is named for WJ West, the nineteenth century neurologist who described the features he observed in his own son. Infantile spasms occur in 24 to 42 of 100,000 births. y Spasms and psychomotor retardation appear in the first year of life in 85 percent of cases, the majority between 3 and 7 months. Infantile spasms are sudden, brief, usually bilaterally symmetrical flexor contractions of the neck, trunk, or limbs. Eye movements, autonomic signs, and brief lapses of consciousness may be observed. Less commonly, extension of the head, trunk, and limbs may be seen. Spasms are commonly repetitive, occurring in clusters on awakening, or during drowsiness, handling, feeding, or fever. Initially, the movements can be so slight that they may go unnoticed. Neurodevelopmental abnormalities may precede the onset of spasms. Moderate to severe cognitive disability occurs in 76 to 95 percent of patients. Associated...

Leaning Forward Maneuver Pancreatic Pain

Pancreatitis And Shoulder Pain

Pain caused by a perforated gastric ulcer is often described as ''burning'' dissecting aneurysm as ''tearing'' intestinal obstruction as ''gripping'' pyelone-phritis as ''dull, aching'' and biliary or renal colic as ''crampy, constricting.'' Renal colic appendicitis Renal colic appendicitis the abdominal or chest wall, shoulder, jaw, or other areas supplied by the somatic nerves. Pain appears to originate in areas supplied by the somatic nerves entering the spinal cord at the same segment as the sensory nerves from the organ responsible for the pain. For example, right-shoulder pain may result from acute cholecystitis testicular pain may result from renal colic or from appendicitis. The common sites for referred pain are shown in Figure 17-3. The locations of pain in abdominal disease are summarized in Table 17-2. Biliary colic

Periodic Irritable Baby

A baby who regularly cries at a certain time of day (usually late afternoon or evening), and is not distended (as is the colicky baby), is called a periodic irritable baby. Usually this crying will correct itself after three months of age. The baby does not seem to be in pain, and her cries are usually less painful than with colic, but still at a regular time.

Anatomy of the Pancreas

Pancreatic Lymph Nodes

Usually crossing the second lumbar vertebra. It is intimately associated with the left adrenal gland, left kidney, and splenic artery and vein, which course along its superior aspect. Because of its relationship to the vertebral bodies, the body of the pancreas is the segment where transection secondary to blunt trauma most commonly occurs. Small venous tributaries from the body of the pancreas empty into the splenic vein and are a potential source of troublesome bleeding when preservation of the spleen is attempted in patients undergoing distal pancreatectomy. Anteriorly, the body of the pancreas is covered by peritoneum separating the stomach from the pancreas. It is also the site for attachment of the transverse mesocolon. The middle colic artery originates from the superior mesenteric artery from beneath the body of the pancreas and emerges from between the peritoneal leaves of the transverse mesocolon. mesenteric artery, which was reported by Michels to be present in 26 of...

The Rome Group for the Epidemiology and Prevention of Cholelithiasis (GREPCO, 1984) found that the overall cumulative probability of developing biliary colic over time was 11.9 at 2 years, 16.5 at 4 years, and 25.8 at 10 years, with a cumulative probability of 3 of developing complications at 10 years. The incidence of the development of biliary complications as the presenting complaint of gallstone disease is rare, ranging from zero to 5.5 . Based on these data, evidence from well-designed cohort and case-control studies summarized by GREPCO favors expectant treatment of...

Social Integration and Family Adaptation to Childhood Disability The Family School Autism Project

Sam was a full-term baby who appeared normal and healthy at birth. According to his mother, aside from a little colic, Sam's first year of life was uneventful. By age 18 months, however, Sam's family became concerned over his increasing lack of social responsiveness, poor eye contact, and failure to acquire any meaningful speech. When brought to the attention of the family pediatrician, the parents were told not to worry since all children develop differently. By age 2, however, Sam's parents become increasingly alarmed by his continued language delays, as well as by his frequent tantrums, lack of play skills, and strange behaviors (for example, staring at lights and waving his fingers in front of his eyes). Family life was further disrupted by Sam's chronic sleep problems, extreme mood fluctuations, and refusal to eat most foods. Finally, at their wit's end, Sam's parents brought him for an evaluation at a nearby children's hospital. After several days of testing, they were informed...

History and Paleopathology

Epidemiological studies have shown that bladder stone is a disease of communities where the diet is high in grain or rice and low in animal protein. With dietary changes resulting from improved technology, migration, or cultural shift, bladder stone disease is replaced by renal stone disease. This is well demonstrated over the past two centuries in parts of Britain, France and other European countries, Russia, China, and Turkey. It is therefore not surprising that ancient references to stone disease deal almost entirely with bladder stone, with rare mention of the renal colic characteristic of upper tract stones.

Evaluate General Appearance

The general appearance of the patient often furnishes valuable information as to the nature of the condition. Patients with renal or biliary colic writhe in bed. They squirm constantly and can find no comfortable position. In contrast, patients with peritonitis, who have intense pain on movement, characteristically remain still in bed because any slight motion worsens the pain. They may be lying in bed with their knees drawn up to help relax the abdominal muscles and reduce intra-abdominal pressure. Patients who are pale and sweating may be suffering from the initial shock of pancreatitis or a perforated gastric ulcer.

Pyeloplasty Technique

Intracorporeal suturing is a necessary part of laparoscopic pyeloplasty. A 4-0 polygly-colic suture is used. Interrupted or running technique can be used. Freehand technique or mechanically assisted suturing can be used. An automatic laparoscopic suturing instrument such as the Endostitch (Fig. 2) can be used.

Clinical Presentation And Evaluation

Chyluria has an unpredictable course associated with remission and exacerbation. The disease usually affects young adults presenting with complaints of passage of whitish urine, white clots, or hematuria (hematochyluria). Sometimes chylous clots can lead to obstruction in the urinary tract, leading to clot colic (flank pain), retention of urine, or even anuria. Although not life threatening, the disease can be debilitating.

Benefits of Parathyroidectomy in Patients with Primary Hyperparathyroidism

Parathyroidectomy benefits most patients with primary hyperparathyroidism. Muscle strength and fine motor function19 as well as psychiatric symptoms20 improve within 1 month after parathyroidectomy. The incidence of renal colic decreases from 66 to 2 per year 1 year after parathyroidectomy.21 Left ventricular hypertrophy also improves within 1 year after parathyroidectomy.22 Bone mineral density improves after parathyroidectomy in patients with asymptomatic primary hyperparathyroidism, and the improvement is sustained for at least 4 years after parathyroidectomy.23 Quality of life measurement also improves after parathyroidectomy.24

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

The mechanism by which the abnormalities of the fetal alcohol syndrome are produced is unknown, but it is thought to be due to a direct teratogenic effect. There is no general agreement regarding the limits of vulnerability of the fetus in terms of gestational age. To date, this syndrome has been described only in children of mothers who drank alcohol frequently during their pregnancy. Fetal alcohol syndrome results in low birth weight and small head circumference. Cranial and joint deformities are common, and the children feed poorly and are colicky and tremulous. The infant mortality rate associated with this

Ascending And Transverse Colon

Female Abdominal Anatomy Diagram

The ascending colon arises from the cecum and courses vertically to the liver, where the colon bends at the right colic (hepatic) flexure (Figure 10-1B). The parietal peritoneum covers its anterior surface, and thus the ascending colon is considered a retroperitoneal organ. A depression between the lateral surface of the ascending colon and the abdominal wall is known as the right paracolic gutter. Branches of the right colic artery that supply the ascending colon enter the bowel on its medial surface. It is possible during surgery to mobilize the ascending colon by cutting the peritoneum along the right paracolic gutter without injuring its major vessels or lymphatics. The right colic artery supplies the ascending colon, whereas the middle colic artery supplies the transverse colon (both are branches of the superior mesenteric artery). The right and left colic arteries contribute to the blood supply of the transverse colon. Transverse mesocolon with middle colic a. and v. Transverse...

Bioabsorbable Materials

Tribution, end groups, and presence of residual monomers or additives.12-14 Table 34-3 describes the physical properties of commonly used biodegradable polymers. Polyglycolic acid (PGA), the polymer of gly-colic acid, is the simplest linear aliphatic polyester. PGA is highly crystalline, with a high melting point and a degradation period of 6 to 12 months. Polylac-tide (PLA) is the polymer of lactic acid. Lactic acid has two optical isomers, L-lactic acid the naturally occurring isomer, D-lactic acid. Poly-D,L-lactide (PDLLA) contains D-lactide and L-lactic acid. Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is the homopolymer of L-lactide. The degradation time of PLLA is much longer than that of PDLLA. Because PDLLA is amorphous with a low tensile strength, higher elongation time, and rapid degradation rate, it is very suitable for a drug-delivery system. Table 34-4 illustrates the ideal properties of a polymer suitable for drug elution. PLLA is a semicrystalline substance with a slower degradation rate...

Hypertonic Baby

A hypertonic baby very Jumpy and doesn't relax well. This baby is bothered by sudden movements, loud noises, and sometimes is very uncomfortable in a tub bath. She may also have symptoms of colic or periodic Irritable crying. If you suspect your baby is a hypertonic one, then she may be comforted by swaddling her in a receiving blanket. She will enjoy a sponge bath more than a tub hath. And you will want to keep the noise down. And have few visitors and the least amount of sudden movement for her.


This occurs when the horse grasps an object, usually the stable door or fence, with the incisor teeth and sucks in air through its mouth. Cribbing, also called wind-sucking or aerophagia is traditionally cited as a cause of recurrent colic and cribbers will also show excessive wear on the incisors. Some horses do not need to grasp anything and are able to swallow air just by flexing the neck. If the habit is severe, hypertrophy of the ventral muscles (sternocephali-cus, omohyoideus and sternothyroideus) of the neck can occur.

In This Chapter

V Cut down on colicky crying Colic The Bubble That Just Won't Burst Lying down for a well-deserved sleep is just hopeful wishing if your baby is suffering from colic. Very common with infants, colic officially affects over 20 percent of all babies, although the numbers are thought to be much greater. Colic pertains to the colon (intestine), and the old word for it was the gripe, usually pronounced grip. Colic occurs when gas forms in your baby's colon, resulting in abdominal pain and spasms that we speculate feel as if the intestines are being grabbed and squeezed. To have an official diagnosis of colic, your baby must cry for three or more hours a day, on at least three days of the week, and be between the ages of three weeks and three months. Luckily, colic usually passes after three to four months, but oooh, until it does It's tough to see your baby so unhappy. An old colic cure is to place a hot water bottle on your knees and lay your baby's tummy on top. Be careful it's not too...


Acute renal colic is a severe, sharp, intermittent pain on one side of the abdomen, often radiating to the groin or testicle. Frequently the patient has some degree of haematuria. Calculi may be visible on plain radiographs, depending on their chemical composition, in up to 90 of cases. Visible calculi appear as foci of increased attenuation, often tiny, and more often oval than round. Some chemical types are relatively low density, and even when calcified are hard to see if very small, especially when obscured by overlying gas, faeces or bone. Larger calculi appear more round, and very large calculi may assume the shape of the calyceal system (stag-horn calculi).


Although usually considered an adult problem, children are not immune to urolithiasis. Older children present with typical symptoms, and younger children may have signs mimicking those of colic. About 15 of children presenting to the emergency department who were ultimately diagnosed with urolithiasis by CT did not have hematuria (Persaud et al., 2009). Metabolic disorders are often the cause of pediatric stones, most often hypercalciuria (Peitrow et al., 2002).

And patients

Much of the work undertaken by patients involved the handling of elimination products. On Treetops many patients routinely maintained their own fluid balance charts. This entailed measuring and recording fluid intake and output and, in some cases, assessing and recording the colour of their urine. Patients with renal colic filtered their urine for kidney

Limonene Rowatinex

While Rowachol is used as a measure against gallstones and biliary tract stones, Rowatinex is used in the treatment of renal stones. The first double-blind, randomized trial was conducted by Mukamel et al. (1987) on 40 patients with acute renal colic. In the Rowatinex group, there was a significantly higher expulsion rate of stones 3 mm in diameter in comparison with the placebo (61 and 28 , respectively). There was also a higher overall success rate in terms of spontaneous stone expulsion and or disappearance of ureteral dilatation in the treatment group compared to placebo (78-52 ), but the difference was not statistically significant.

Transitional Objects

In the first months of life, a baby's existence is entirely secure and pleasurable provided she doesn't have colic. She wakes because she is hungry, is promptly nursed at breast or bottle, and cradled in her mother's arm. She may gently feel her mother's skin or dress. Then she goes back to sleep again. Of course many babies don't try to suck their thumb at all and there is no need for a pacifier in such cases unless there is three-month baby colic which is mild enough to be soothed by a pacifier.

The History

Congenital Heart Disease Cxr

Acquired cardiac or noncardiac disease may lead to the discovery of hitherto unsuspected situs inversus.19'39'66,68,69,76 The pain of ischemic heart disease is located in the right anterior chest with radiation to the right shoulder and right arm.66,68,76 The pain of appendicitis is referred to the left lower quadrant,93 and the pain of biliary colic presents in the left upper quadrant (Fig. 3-13).

The Enlightenment

The popular appeal of the new concepts of mental illness must also be attributed to developments in medical research and theory that stressed the importance of the nervous system to all pathology and that presumed a psychosomatic model of interaction between mind and body. The trend stems from Willis, who looked to the brain as the fundamental organ his model, though, remained humoral, based on poisonous nervous liquors. As the extensions of the nervous system became further elaborated in the eighteenth century through the work of Giovanni Morgagni, Albrecht von Haller, and Robert Whytt, a new medical system appeared that was based on the irritability and sympathy of the muscles and nerves. The renowned Scottish physician William Cullen went so far as to declare that the majority of all diseases were caused by either too much or too little nervous tone, a pathological condition that he termed a neurosis. Neuroses, as defined by Cullen, were afflictions of sense and motion that lacked...

Liver Disease

The Hyangyak chipsong pang lists 25 forms of jaundice, but these conditions were not linked to problems of the liver and gallbladder. By contrast, the Tongui pogam reduced all the subdivisions simply to jaundice. Its cause was explained in terms of damp fever, in which the blood evaporates and becomes hot and dark in color. This dark color first appears in the eyes and face, but as it spreads, the whole body becomes yellow. Causes of jaundice included alcohol poisoning, lack of appetite, excessive sexual indulgence, and yellow sweat. Some texts apparently described gallstones along with colic, but all the painful stone diseases were essentially indistinguishable.

Lead Poisoning

Lead poisoning (plumbism) is defined simply as the undesirable health effects induced by that metal. Many of these, however, are nonspecific that is, they are similar to or identical with symptoms and signs produced by causes other than lead, and some of the toxic effects are so subtle they require laboratory identification. This historical and geographic discussion concerns itself primarily with those overt effects obviously apparent upon even casual observation by nonmedical observers, which therefore are most likely to appear in the historical record. Principal among these are abdominal colic, muscle paralysis due to lead-damaged nerves, and convulsions.

Nausea and Vomiting

The relationship of the pain to vomiting is important and may help in providing the diagnosis. In acute appendicitis, pain precedes the vomiting usually by a few hours. The character of the vomitus may aid in determining its cause. Acute gastritis causes the patient to vomit stomach contents. Biliary colic produces bilious, or greenish-yellow, vomitus. Intestinal obstruction often causes the patient to expel bilious vomitus, followed by feculent-smelling fluid. Feculent vomitus is usually caused by intestinal obstruction.


Urolithiasis complicates one of 1500 pregnancies. Although there are metabolic and anatomic alterations during pregnancy that might predispose the pregnant patient to increased stone formation, urinary stones occur at similar rates in pregnant and non-pregnant patients (118). The modern approach to urolithiasis in pregnancy is initially conservative medical management (rest, hydration, analgesia, and antiemetics), as 70 to 80 of pregnant patents with symptomatic calculi will pass their stones. Patients with colic refractory to medical treatment, sepsis, obstruction of a solitary kidney, or social and psychological reasons may require a more aggressive approach (119,120).
