Digestive System. Components of the gastrointestinal system include the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine.

The gastrointestinal tract’s accessory organs include the liver, pancreas, and gallbladder (Jarvis, & Scanlon, ). The mouth functions to break down food into smaller parts. Organization of The Digestive System Organs of the digestive system are divided into 2 main group: the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) and accessory structures.

GI tract is a continuous tube extending through the ventral cavity from the mouth to the anus –it consists of the mouth, File Size: 1MB. Concise text covers the core anatomy, physiology and biochemistry in an integrated manner as required by system- and problem-based medical courses.

The basic science is presented in the clinical context in a way appropriate for the early part of the medical course. The digestive system. helps convert food into. energy for us to use.

In the digestive system, the mouth has many different. functions that break down food to help better digest. and swallow it. Your teeth chew food into smaller. pieces.

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).

The major arteries supplying the gastrointestinal tract are the celiac, superior mesenteric, and inferior mesenteric arteries. The celiac supplies the stomach and the proximal portion of the small intestine (duodenum), the superior mesenteric supplies the rest of the small intestine and proximal portion of the colon, while the inferior mesenteric supplies the distal portion of the colon.

The hollow organs that make up the GI tract are the mouth. The Gastrointestinal System is responsible for the breakdown and absorption of various foods and liquids needed to sustain life.

Many different organs have essential roles in the digestion of food, from the mechanical disrupting by the teeth to the creation of bile (an emulsifier) by the liver.
