unknown you will have to monitor your diet because your body can t tell when you are full anymore Rugae Longitudinal folds Changes in size When stomach is empty the folds wi fold on each other When you eat to capacity the stomach and folds will stretch out Allow for massive changes in size Stomach Size Bariatric Surgery for Weight loss Gastric bypass Bypassing part of the stomach so it is not digested Gastric band Put a band to different sizes so that the stomach cant expand like it normally would just smaller so you feel fuller faster Can over eat with it Not permanent Less of a long term

start breaking down your stomach Mucosal Barrier Mucus cells secrete mucus Layer of bicarbonaterich mucus Helps to increase pH Tight junctions between epithelial cells Provides protection of stomach mucosa from digestion from pepsin Gastric Secretions The mucous membrane of the stomach has tubular gastric glands that secrete Pepsinogen From the chief cells Inactive form of pepsin Pepsin From pepsinogen in the presence of hydrochloric acid Is a protein splitting enzyme Hydrochloric acid From the parietal cells Needed to convert pepsinogen to pepsin Mucus From the goblet cells and the mucous glands Protective to stomach wall Intrinsic factor From the parietal cells s required for vitamin B12 absorption Gastric Absorption Gastric enzymes begin breaking down proteins but the stomach is not welladapted to absorb digestive products The stomach does absorb Some water Certain salts Certain lipidsoluble drugs Why you need to take some medications with or without food Alcohol Drinking on an empty stomach you can tell the affects much more quickly CD Propulsion Peristaltic gt Grinding The most gt vigorous peristalsis and mixing action occur close to the pylorus waves move from the fundus toward the pylorus Pyloric valve slightly opened 65 Retropulsion The pyloric end of the stomach acts as a pump that delivers small amounts of chyme into the duodenum simultaneously forcing most of its contained material backward into the stomach Figure 2319 Regulation of Gastric Emptying As chyme enters the duodenum Receptors respond to stretch and chemical signals Stretch receptors receptors that respond to a filling of chyme Chemo receptorsreceptors that are sensitive to chemical changes that occur ie the low pH of the contents of the stomach is not suitable for other parts of the body So it sends signal to the brain to slow down release of chemicals and enzymes Enterogastric reflex and enterogastrones inhibit gastric secretion and duodenal mng How fast something is broken down and absorbed depends on the contents of the stomach Carbohydraterich chyme moves quickly through the duodenum because it started digestion in the mouth Fatty chyme remains in the duodenum 6 hours or more Nerve impulses inhibit peristalsis in stomach wall From CNS quot 3 Vagus nerve To CNS Duodenum fills with chyme Sensory nerve impulses travel to central nervous system Sensory stretch receptors are stimulated
