Bullets for Gastroinestinal:
Straight from the 1997 Guidelines:
Examination of abdomen with notation of prescence of masses or tenderness
Examination of liver and spleen
Examination for presence or absence of hernia
Examination of anus, perineum, and rectum, including sphincter tone, prescence of hemorroids, rectal masses.
Obtain stool sample for occult blood test when indicated.
My opinion is that there isn't any bullet where you would be able to count positive bowel sounds.
Hope that helps.
