Digestion System Anatomy

What is the Anatomy of the Digestion System and the main parts?

The organs of the digestive system can be separated into two main groups: those forming the alimentary canal and the accessory digestive organs.

  • The stomach
  • The liver

  • The pancreas
  • The small intestine
  • The large intestine (colon)
  • The rectum
  • The anus

5 Interesting functions of the digestion system

  • If the body’s energy stores fall below certain points the brain sends a signal and we feel hunger.
  • Pleasure and comfort that can be derived from ingesting food, thus the activation of the hypothalamus is not the only source of hunger.
  • The bolus is moved toward the lower esophageal sphincter at a rate of 4 cm/s.
  • An amount of chemical digestion occurs in the mouth, as saliva contains the enzyme amylase.
  • The teeth are used to cut, tear, and grind chunks of food into smaller particles, thus they have an important part in the process.

How to create a shape diagram for the Anatomy of the Digestion System?

  7. You can also use one of the shapes from Healthcare
  8. Once you have created your diagram/ template you can save the document in one of MyDraw’s native formats or export it in a preferred file format(PDF, SVG, EMF, VSDX, etc.).
  9. You can also export the document as a raster image.
