What Is Meant By Abdominal Emergencies

Abdominal Emergencies are potentially fatal conditions resulting from disorders of the Abdominal system; they require immediate medical treatment, and often surgical intervention.

Severe abdominal pain may be the usual symptom of an Abdominal emergency. Depending on the severity of the symptom and the doctor’s observation during a preliminary physical examination, immediate exploratory surgery may be conducted to detect and treat the condition, or medical investigations may be conducted first to determine the exact nature and location of the disorder before taking surgical measures. Rupture of Abdominal organs such as appendix, stomach or intestines, abscesses, or obstructions in the intestines are the usual emergency situations which require immediate surgery.

Severe or prolonged bleeding from the stomach or the intestine is also extremely dangerous even when symptoms such as pain are absent. An endoscopic examination of the digestive tract can identify the location of bleeding and surgical repair can be undertaken to prevent further complications.
