eructation

 [e″ruk-ta´shun]
the oral ejection of gas or air from the stomach; belching.

e·ruc·ta·tion

(ē-rŭk-tā'shŭn),
The voiding of gas or of a small quantity of acidic fluid from the stomach through the mouth.
Synonym(s): belching, ructus
[L. eructo, pp. -atus, to belch]

belching

The release of gas through the mouth, which represents an adaptive relaxation triggered by a build-up of intragastric air pressure due to an accumulation of gas, especially from carbonated drinks, such as soft drinks, beer and champagne. The sound itself is caused by vibration of the upper oesophageal sphincter.

Upper abdominal discomfort due to excess swallowed air may extend into the chest, mimicking heart or lung disease; in guinea pigs, belching is mediated by nitric acid release from non-adrenergic non-cholinergic nerves.

Patient discussion about eructation

Q. Is it an ulcer? I am worried! Hi friend, I'm 35 year old male and recently I started to suffer from some strange symptoms I have never experienced. The first symptom was sharp pain in my upper abdomen that starts two of three hours after eating. In the beginning I thought it could be connected with some food intolerance but then I started to get this pain early in the morning, before any eating what so ever and all this was accompanied with nausea, frequent burping and weight loss. I have read some stuff about stomach ulcer and I could say that I poses almost every major symptom. Is there any way for me to be sure that I have developed disease of ulcer?

A. There is nothing you could do to check do you have ulcer or not by your self. Anyone who thinks he may have an ulcer needs to see a doctor because over time, untreated ulcers grow larger and deeper and can lead to other problems. So go now to the doctor.

Pickett's guesses about percussion accompaniment, eructation, or out-of-tuneness could conceivably be correct in the sense that one or all of them might have occurred in the pieces to which he applies them (only a few, I am bound to add) on one of the 100 or so New Year's days from the mid-12th to the mid-13th centuries at one or other of the places where these items were sung, though it would be stretching coincidence too far to imagine them all occurring on any single occasion.
They were the norms in comparison with which the following variations were understood by observation combined with intuition: vyana, "different breath" (that breath situated between inhalation and exhalation, or the retained air, which circulates in the body and promotes internal functions), samana, "complete breath" (that breath remaining after the twofold process of respiration, i.e., inhalation and exhalation, perceived to bring about digestion), and udana, "up breath" (that inhaled breath which returns to the mouth as eructation).
