    VI. Anatomy & Physiology

    igestion is the process by which foods broken down into smaller pieces so thathe body can use them to build and nourish.ells and to provide energy Digestion,nvolves the mixing of food its movement(hrough the digestive tract also known as),he alimentary canal and the chemicalreakdown of larger molecules into smaller.olecules Every piece of food we eat has toe broken down into smaller nutrients that,he body can absorb which is why it takes.ours to fully digest food he digestive system is made up of the.igestive tract This consists of a longube of organs that runs from the mouth to,he anus and includes the esophagus, ,tomach small intestine and large, ,ntestine together with the liver gall, ,ladder and pancreas which producemportant secretions for digestion that.rain into the small intestine Theigestive tract in an adult is about 30

  • 8/7/2019 Acute Gastroenteritis (age)


    outh and Salivary GlandsDigestion - begins in the, .mouth where chemical and mechanical digestion occurs

    ,Saliva or spit produced by the salivary glands( ),located under the tongue and near the lower jaw is

    .released into the mouth Saliva begins to break down,the food moistening it and making it easier to. ( )swallow A digestive enzyme called amylase in thesaliva begins to break down

    ( ).the carbohydrates starches and sugars One of the.most important functions of the mouth is chewing

    Chewing allows food to be mashed into a soft mass easier to swallow and digest later -sophagus ,Once food is swallowed it enters the

    ,esophagus a muscular tube that is about 10 inches.long The esophagus is located between the throat and

    .the stomach Muscular wavelike contractions known as

    peristalsis push the food down through the esophagusto. (the stomach A muscular ring called the

    )cardiac sphincter at the end of the esophagus allows, , ,food to enter the stomach and then it squeezes shut

    to prevent food and fluid from going back up the.esophagus

  • 8/7/2019 Acute Gastroenteritis (age)


    -tomach -a J shaped organ that lies between theesophagus and the small intestine in the upper

    . :abdomen The stomach has 3 main functions to store; ,the swallowed food and liquid to mix up the food

    , ;liquid and digestive juices produced by the stomachand to slowly empty its contents into the small.intestine

    mall Intestine - Most digestion and absorption of

    .food occurs in the small intestine The small

    ,intestine is a narrow twisting tube that occupiesmost of the lower abdomen between the stomach and the.beginning of the large intestine It extends about 20

    .feet in length The: (small intestine consists of 3 parts the duodenum the

    - ), ( ),C shaped part the jejunum the coiled midsection

    ( ).and the ileum the last section The small intestine. ,has 2 important functions First the digestiveprocess is completed here by enzymes and other

    , ,substances made by intestinal cells the pancreas and.the liver Glands in the intestine walls secrete

    .enzymes that breakdown starches and sugars

  • 8/7/2019 Acute Gastroenteritis (age)


    he pancreas secretes enzymes into thesmall ,ntestine that help breakdown carbohydrate, . ,ats and proteins The liver produces bile.hich is stored in the gallbladder Bile(elps to make fat molecules which otherwise) ,re not soluble in water soluble so they. ,an be absorbed by the body Second thesmallntestine absorbs the nutrients from the.igestive process The inner wall of themall intestine is covered by millions of.iny fingerlike projections called villihe villi are covered with even tinier

    .rojections called microvilli Theombination of villi and microvillincrease the surface area of the small,ntestine greatly allowing absorption of.utrients to occur Undigested material.ravels next to the large intestine

  • 8/7/2019 Acute Gastroenteritis (age)


    -arge intestine orms an upside down U.ver the coiled small intestine It begins at-he lower right hand side of the body and ends- .n the lower left hand side The large- .ntestine is about 5 6 feet long It has 3: , , .arts the cecum the colon and the rectum Theecum is a pouch at the beginning of the large.ntestine This area allows food to pass from.he small intestine to the large intestine Theolon is where fluids and salts are absorbed.nd extends from the cecum to the rectum The,ast part of the large intestine is the rectum( )hich is where feces waste material is stored.efore leaving the body through the anus Theain job of the large intestine is to remove( )ater and salts electrolytes from thendigested material and to form solid waste.hat can be excreted Bacteria in the largentestine help to break down the undigested.aterials The remaining contents of the large,ntestine are moved toward the rectum whereeces are stored until they leave the body.hrough the anus as a bowel movement
