Bray, D.; Reilly, R.B.; Haskin, L. and McCormack, B. 'Assessing motility through abdominal sound monitoring' in Proceedings of the 19th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, Chicago, October, 6, IEEE, 1997, pp 2398 - 2400.
This paper presents the results of an investigation into a computerised system for the assessment of gastrointestinal motility through the recording and analysis of bowel sounds. The system described is aimed primarily at monitoring post-operative recovery. Other potential applications such as a clinical aid in the determination of the effects of drugs on the intestinal tract and as a method of improving the objective diagnosis of motility disorders are also outlined
