The stomach acts as a reservoir and converts the episodic input of food from the oesophagus to a more continuous output of chyme into the duodenum. It is important in the mechanical breakdown of food and the chemical digestion of proteins.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Describe the fundamentals of normal gastric function
• Identify factors which may disrupt normal physiology
• Determine the consequences of abnormal function
• Propose measures to compensate for pathophysiology
