Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS, is a chronic condition affecting your large intestine. Your large intestine, also known as your colon, includes the cecum, ascending colon, transverse colon, descending colon, sigmoid colon, rectum, and anal canal. The muscular wall of your colon contracts in a rhythmic fashion called peristalsis to move the intestinal contents toward your rectum. As it contracts your colon absorbs water and nutrients from partially digested food moving through it. Waste material called stool is stored in the rectum until it is expelled through the anus as a bowel movement. With IBS the muscular contractions of your colon are abnormal. In some cases the contractions may cause food to move too quickly through your colon. As a result, your colon does not have enough time to absorb most of the water from your food. This condition leads to a watery stool and diarrhea. In other cases the contractions may cause food to move too slowly. As a result your colon absorbs too much water from your food. This condition leads to a hardened stool and constipation. It is unclear why your colon contracts abnormally. However, if you have IBS your colon may be more sensitive to certain factors, such as stress, that seem not to affect most people. Other symptoms of IBS include abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating, gas, and cramping. You can manage your IBS symptoms through a combination of dietary habit changes, stress management, and medications. Eating food high in fiber creates softer, bulkier stools, which may prevent spastic colon contractions. Fiber also helps relieve constipation. Stress management therapies, such as hypnotherapy and yoga, may help relieve your symptoms. Your doctor may prescribe medications to help manage or symptoms, such as anti-constipation drugs to help regulate your bowel movements, antispasmodic drugs to minimize muscle spasms and reduce pain, or sedatives and antidepressants to relieve anxiety and elevate your mood.

"I thought you might want to know that after we sent a copy of your illustration to the defendants, with a copy to the insurance company, they increased their offer by an additional million dollars and the case was settled for $1,900,000.00.

I appreciate your help!"

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."
