This Noise may happen at the Valve of the Pikrus or Colon, or in passing by the solid Excrements below, but not in the small Guts, unless they be twisted or stopped. Keeping the Stomach too much or too long distended stretches the small Vessels that constitute the Sides so much, that filling or extending them with Blood, Juices, &c. will not contract the Stomach to the usual Degree. Some have thought that when there is a Stop or any other Cause which makes the Stomach extend too much, it may make it press the great Artery behind it, and hinder a due Proportion of the Blood from descending; but if the Stop be not near the Stomach, and there be no great Obstruction in the Passage of the Steam, the same Force which extends the Stomach extends the Arter ry and drives the Blood. If there be an Obstruction near the Stomach and the Steam issue not out in due Proportion from the Stomach, or from the Guts below the Stop, the Blood will move flowlier, and the Pressure of the Atmosphere will prevail over the Strength of the Steam, and press a greater Share of the Blood into the inward Vessels; and though indeed the Blood will be less expanded or in less Compass, yet perhaps the Arteries will be more distended than when the Steam issues briskly, and the due Share of more
