Medical - Medical (general) / physical exam (abdomen)
Italian term or phrase: TEC
From handwritten notes regarding a patient admitted for PTCA:

"EOA: Addome globoso, trattabile, TEC. Peristalsi valido."

I know that TEC is "timpanismo enterocolico" - am I right in saying this can be translated as "bowel sounds"? Also, I am presuming that the way it is written here, the staff mean that these are normal, so can I translate this as "normal bowel sounds"?

Thanks in advance!
