Table 5 The linear CVs of EBSs

From: Changes in bowel sounds of inpatients undergoing general anesthesia

Linear CVs Calculation methods Physiological significance
Num_bs The number of identified effective bowel sounds during the measurement Frequency of bowel sounds in the 5 min
Sum_bs The sum of the absolute values of the identified effective bowel sounds Reflecting the total energy of the bowel sounds
Sum_Duration_bs The sum of the duration of the identified effective bowel sounds Reflecting the total duration of bowel sounds
Mean_Duration The mean of the duration of effective bowel sounds Mean duration of effective bowel sounds
Std_Duration The standard deviation of the duration of effective bowel sounds Standard deviation of duration of effective bowel sounds
Mean_Mag_bs The mean of the mean absolute value of effective bowel sounds The average energy of effective bowel sounds
Std_Mag_bs The standard deviation of the mean absolute value of effective bowel sounds The standard deviation of the energy of the effective bowel sound
