    This book offers one of the most comprehensive reviews in the field of gastrointestinal (GI) physiology, guiding readers on a journey through the complete digestive tract, while also . Functional GI disorders are disorders of gut–brain interaction. It is a group of disorders classified by GI symptoms related to any combination of the following: motility disturbance, visceral hypersensitivity, altered mucosal and immune function, altered gut microbiota, and altered central nervous system (CNS) processing.

The primary function of the gastrointestinal tract is to serve as a portal whereby nutrients and water can be absorbed into the body. In fulfilling this function, the meal is mixed with a variety of secretions that arise from both the gastrointestinal tract itself and organs that drain into it, such as the pancreas, gallbladder, and salivary glands.

Handbook of Gastrointestinal Motility and Functional Disorders is a user-friendly handbook that reviews the latest and most up-to-date information on the evaluation of symptoms and diagnostic tests of GI motility and functional GI disorders and a practical approach on how to treat these disorders.

Each chapter is written by an international expert in the field who was carefully /5(3). This book describes the causes and clinical management of functional gastrointestinal disorders in a readily understandable way, with the aid of many clear illustrations.

The concrete and practical advice provided will be most helpful in the clinical practice of both the general practitioner and the medical specialist. Chapter 1 Regulation of Gastrointestinal Functions Eugene B.

Chang and Po Sing Leung 1 Introduction of the Gastrointestinal System The Gastro-Intestinal (GI) system is divided into two parts: the luminal GI and hepato-biliary-pancreatic by: 2. The book covers a wide range of conditions, from food allergies, constipation, chronic liver disease and IBS, also exploring emerging techniques to diagnose and normalize functions of the GI tract.

As a highly referenced book, this is a useful resource for gastroenterologists, physiologists, internists, professional researchers and instructors teaching courses for clinical.

Digestive System. As we have learned from previous chapters, the stomach is a segment of the gastrointestinal tract in which important aspects of digestion and secretory function are initiated. However, in addition to these functions, which are largely dependent on gastric secretory function, the stomach also plays critical roles that depend on its motility.

Gastrointestinal disorders include such conditions as constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, anal fissures, perianal abscesses, anal fistulas, perianal infections, diverticular diseases, colitis, colon polyps and cancer.

Many of these can be prevented or minimized by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, practicing good bowel habits.

Disturbances of the gastric secretion. Hyposecretion - the decrease of the gastric functions – - impaired storage and digestive and other functions. Postgastrectomy syndrome – dumping – hyperosmolar chyme in the duodenum – hypoglycemia.

Hypersecretion – dysbalance in HCl: mucus ratio – ulceration – autodigestion. The function of the digestive system is to break down the foods you eat, release their nutrients, and absorb those nutrients into the body.

Although the small intestine is the workhorse of the system, where the majority of digestion occurs, and where most of the released nutrients are absorbed into the blood or lymph, each of the digestive system organs makes a vital.

Physiology of the Gastrointestinal Tract, Fifth Edition — winner of a Highly Commended BMA Medical Book Award for Internal Medicine — covers the study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of the GI Tract while linking the clinical disease or disorder, bridging the gap between clinical and laboratory medicine.

The gastrointestinal system is responsible. The 12th edition of Guyton and Hall Textbook of Medical Physiology continues this bestselling title's long tradition as one of the world's favorite physiology textbooks. The immense success of this book is due to its description of complex physiologic principles in language that is easy to read and understand.

Format: Paperback this is a great book for understanding the GI tract and all processes involved in the organ system's function - it goes into detail, but the chronological order and organised format of the book makes it easy to follow/5(7).

The functions of the gastrointestinal tract and its accessory organs are essential for life. The process of digestion supplies nutrients to every cell in our body. If there is a disruption in any of these mechanisms, the whole body suffers.

Understanding the anatomy and physiology of the gastrointestinal system is important in accurately assessing patients with gastrointestinal disorders. Due to the complexity of the GI tract and the substantial volume of material that could be covered under the scope of GI physiology, this chapter briefly reviews the overall function of the GI tract, and discusses the major factors affecting GI physiology and function, including the intestinal microbiota, chronic stress, inflammation, and aging with a focus on the neural regulation of the GI Cited by:   Gastrointestinal Physiology, a volume in the Mosby Physiology Series, explains the fundamentals of this complex subject in a clear and concise manner, while helping you bridge the gap between normal function and disease with pathophysiology content throughout the book.4/5(1).

In this review, we discuss the regulation on GI function through acupuncture from the perspectives of GI motility, the GI barrier, visceral sensitivity, and the brain-gut axis. The results of studies in both humans (Table (Table3) 3) and animals suggest that acupuncture has the potential to treat GI disorders by regulating GI motility, the GI Cited by: Get this from a library.

The sections are: 1) Cardiac region, where the contents of the esophagus empty into the stomach, 2) Fundus, formed by the upper curvature of the organ, 3) Body, the main central region, and 4) Pylorus or atrium, the lower section of the organ that facilitates emptying the contents into the .The pancreas is a long, slender organ, most of which is located posterior to the bottom half of the stomach (Figure ).

Although it is primarily an exocrine gland, secreting a variety of digestive enzymes, the pancreas has an endocrine function. Its pancreatic islets —clusters of cells formerly known as the islets of Langerhans.Researchers are finding evidence that irritation in the gastrointestinal system may send signals to the central nervous system (CNS) that trigger mood changes.

“These new findings may explain why a higher-than-normal percentage of people with IBS and functional bowel problems develop depression and anxiety,” Pasricha says.
