FETAL PIG FUNCTIONS

STUDY
PLAY
Anus
Regulates egestion of undigested food(feces) from the body
Gallbladder
stores bile for the breakdown of fats
Teeth
Mechanically breakdown food
Rectum
final site of water reabsorbtion and feces production
Liver
Produces bile, converts glucose to glycogen for storage, detoxifies absorbed digested compounds.
salivary Glands
secrete digestive enzymes to begin the breakdown of food. lubricates food to be swollowed
colon
responsible for reabsorption of water and electrolytes: produces feces
Pancreas
Produces digestive enzymes and delivers them through the pancreatic duct and duodenum
jejunum
Responsible for the majority of nutrient absorption and reabsorption of water.
ileum
continues the process of nutrient absorption and the reabsorption of water
esophagus
transports food to the stomach
duodenum
recieve chyme from the stomach along with secretory enzymes from the gallbladder and the pancreas.
Cecum
in herbivores it is larger in order to breakdown cellulose. protozoans and anaerobic bacteria responsible. Reduced in omniovores and carnivores
Stomach
Produces hydrochloric acid and pepsinogen that aid in breaking down food
Dorsal
Side closes to the backbone
ventral
side closer to the belly
caudal
closest to the tail
cranial
closest to the head
medial
closest to the middle of the pig
lateral
closest to the sides of the pig
rostral
closest to the nose of the pig
proximal
closest to the median of the body in reference to another point
Distal
farther from the body's meidan plane in reference to another point.
Frontal Plane
hamburger style
Transverse
cut between cranial and caudal
sagittal plane
hot dog style ( right left)
Visceral Pleura
Covers the lung
Visceral pericardium
covers the surface of the heart
Visceral Peritoneum
covers the surface of the intestines and stomach
Parietal Pluera
lines the lungs
Parietal pericardium
line the heart
parietal peritoneum
line the outside surface of the intestine and the stomach
Hepatic duct
connects with the cystic duct and forms the common dile duct
Where does the hepatic duct come from?
Liver
Fundus
Middle region of the stomach
