should help you pass, it has some stuff that MIGHT be used. - Created by Nas Ibrahim (Galvan's anatomy student)
after food has been chewed, it is formed into a small founded mass called a:
Alimentary canal consists of:
mouth, phaynx, esophagus, stomach, small intestines, large intestines, anus
Another name for the third molar is:
Carbohydrate absorption begins in the mouth via the enzume amylase
the cardiac sphincter controls the opening of the esophagus into the stomach.
enzymes break down food materials into their building blocks carbohydrates broken into simple sugars
protein broken into amino acids
fats broken into fatty acids
chyme is liquefied food found in the stomach.
controls the opening in the stomach to the small intestine?
The crown of the tooth is covered with:
elimination of digestible substances as feces,

the enzyme amylase converts which of the following?
starches to sugars
the enzyme pepsin is concerned primarily with the difgestion of which of the following?
Enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of proteins are:
the esophagus is voluntary in the upper third, mixed in the middle, and involuntary in the lower third.
fat droplet surrounded by bile salts
fats are absorbed primarily into which of the following structures?
lymph in intestinal lacteals
The final produce of carbohydrate digestion is a:
the folds in the lining of the stomach are called rugae.
food leaving the stomach
the function of the appendix is uncertain
gastrointestinal tract is also called
the largest gland in the body is the :
the lesser omentum attaches the :
the Liver to the lesser curvature of the stomach
List the accesory organs of the digestive system:
pancreas, teeth, liver, salivary glands, gallbladder
List the functions of the digestive system
breakdown of ingested food, absorption of nutrients into the blood
the liver consists of two lobes separated by the falciform ligament.
the majority of substance are absorbed in the small intestine
mixing of food in the mouth by the tongue, churning food in the stomach, segmentation in the small intestine
the mesentery is fan-shaped projection of the parietal peritoneum
sum of all chemical reactions in the body
movement of lower colon and rectum contents at a rate slower than normal can cause:
olfactory and visual stimuli are factors concerning the control of digestive gland secretion
order of small intestine divisions starting proximal to the stomach
Duodeum, Jejunum, ileum
alternating waves of contraction
Peristalsis begins in the:
peristalsis can be described as a mixing movement.
The process of fat emulsficication consists of:
breaking down fats into small droplets
the process of swallowing is known as:
process of taking food into the GI tract
protein digestion begins in the:
refers to the liver
internal folds in the stomach
Parotid glands- anterior to the ears
moving materials back and forth to aid in mixing
The serosa is actually:
small intestine aborption
plicae, villi, microvilli
Starting from the deepest layer and moving towards the most superficial, the layers of the wall of the GI tract are:
mucosa, submucosa, muscularis, serosa
food enters at the cardioesophageal sphincter,
acts as a storage tank for food,
delivers chime (processed food) to the small intestine
swallowing moves a mass of food called
the role is to masticate food, humans have 2 sets of teeth, decidous and adult with 32 teeth ( ages 6-12 years), incisors, canines, premolars, molars
the terminal inch of the rectum is called the
the tissue layers of the GI tract are constant, with no variation in the different organs.
The union of the cystic duct and hepatic duct from the :
common bile duct.
The volume of saliva secreted per day is:
the volumes of stomach and duodenum are approximately equal.
where is bile stored
which blood vessel carries absorbed nutrients from the GI tact to the liver?
which of the following describes the pharyngeal stage of deglutition?
oropharynx to esophagus
which one is not part of the small intestine?
Which step of deglutition is under voluntary control?
