A bowel obstruction is a dangerous medical condition in which food and liquids are prevented from passing through the large or small intestine. Without proper diagnosis and treatment, a bowel obstruction can lead to severe medical problems, including gangrene, sepsis, shock, and even death. It is the responsibility of doctors and medical staff to monitor patients for risk of bowel obstruction and to take appropriate measures when warning signs exist. Failure to do so may constitute medical negligence.

Common signs of bowel obstruction include abdominal pain, constipation, vomiting, bloating and diarrhea.
Potential causes of bowel perforations include:
Failure to treat a blocked intestine can lead to a perforated or ischemic bowel. The condition often presents with high fever, intense abdominal pain and other symptoms. If the obstruction is not managed appropriately using an NG tube, colonoscopy or surgical intervention when necessary, the bowel will perforate causing toxins to be released into the bloodstream, leading to sepsis. If not diagnosed and treated in a timely manner, such an infection can progress to the point it is no longer treatable by antibiotics.
