3 Written questions

3 Multiple choice questions

  1. the gastro-intestinal tract beginning at the mouth and ending at the anus and its associated organs ie. salivary glands, liver, gall bladder and pancreas
  2. rectal bleeding and passing of mucus are refer to GP situations, unhealthy levels of stress affect digestion and absorption, acute conditions are contra-indicated
  3. mechanical (chewing, swallowing and peristalsis ie. breaks down food and moves it along digestive tract), chemical (enzyme action, reduces large molecules to smaller ones for absorption through organ wall for transportation to cells), protein (happens in stomach and then in small intestine), carbohydrate (happens in mouth then stomach then mainly in small intestine), fat (bile emulsifies fats, no enzymes are involved unlike every other digestion)

2 True/False questions

  1. organs (6)mouth (food breakdown), pharynx (dual function in respiratory and digestion), stomach (food breakdown), small intestine (divides into duodenum, jejenum and ileum, most chemical digestine occurs here), large intestine (divides into caecum, appendix, colon that has ascending, transverse anbd descending parts, water absorption and production of vits. occur here), accessory organs (salivary glands, liver, gall bladder and pancreas)

          

  2. effects (5)relaxation effect reduces stress levels therefore aids digestion, improved circulation and glandular activity results in increased secretion of digested juicies, promotes peristaltic activity as reflex action of nerves are excited, increases the amount of bile secreted by liver, strengthens muscular walls of intestine and abdomen
