Abstract

This author’s goal with this poster is to provide research on postoperative ileus to help others learn more about the pathophysiology of the condition, causes of ileus, symptoms, treatments, and prevention. By learning more on postoperative ileus, healthcare providers will be better prepared to care for postoperative patients to help prevent ileus after surgery and to better care for the patient if they were to develop an ileus. This poster can also serve as an education tool for patients by teaching the patient preventative measures to help protect themselves postoperatively.
