Anatomy review l.jpg

Anatomy: Review

  • Mouth

    • Salivary glands

    • Food chewed and mixed w/saliva. Bolus is moved toward pharynx and swallowing is stimulated

  • Esophagus: Extends from pharynx to stomach

    • Protected by mucus

    • Empty and collapsed at rest


Slide4 l.jpg

  • Esophagus is maintained empty by 2 sphincters

    • UES - Upper Esophageal Sphincter – first 2-3 cm of the esophagus. Thickening of circular muscle layer which allows food to move from the mouth to the esophagus

    • LES - Lower Esophageal Sphincter – (AKA Cardiac sphincter) Between esophagus and stomach.

      No structural difference (no thickening) but high intraluminal pressure that keeps it closed until food needs to be dumped into the stomach. This prevents gastric reflux.


Slide5 l.jpg

  • Stomach

    • Upper portion (fundus/orad region) Storage occurs here. Little muscle tone so it can bulge outward: “active relaxation.” Little contractile activity.

    • Lower portion (body, antrum) Mixing moves contents toward antrum. With each wave, a few ml of chyme move into duodenum, but most is pushed back for more mixing w/gastric secretion (retropulsion).

    • As the stomach empties, contractions begin further up the body to bring down stomach contents.

    • Pyloric Sphincter connects stomach to duodenum


Slide6 l.jpg

  • Small Intestine (duodenum, jejunum, ileum) bulk of nutrient absorption

    • structural folds in lining (less in ileum), including villi and microvilli (brush border)

    • ileocecal sphincter (ileocecal valve) connects s.i. to large intestine.

  • Large Intestine (colon) bulk of fluid and electrolyte absorption

  • Rectum/Anus – holding/excretion of fecal matter.

Pyloric sphincter


Disorders of the mouth and esophagus l.jpg

Disorders of the Mouth and Esophagus

  • Difficulties Chewing (masticating) can lead to wt. loss and compromised nutritional status.

  • Depending on the problem (individualized!) soft or pureed foods may be used. (remember this is just a regular diet that’s mechanically modified).

    • keep as wide a variety of foods as possible, and use appropriate temperatures/variety of colors


Slide9 l.jpg

Conditions that may interfere w/chewing and swallowing:

1. Mouth ulcers (2’ viruses, drugs, radiation therapy)


Slide10 l.jpg

2. Inadequate Saliva Production

  • Encourage good oral hygiene Encourage sucking on sugarless candy/chewing sugarless gum


Difficulties swallowing dysphagia l.jpg

Difficulties Swallowing – DYSPHAGIA

  • Causes:

  • Diagnosis: ____________________________, x-ray, measurement of UES pressure, fluoroscopy.


Slide12 l.jpg

  • Dangerous and often undiagnosed:

    • “food gets stuck in my throat”


Slide13 l.jpg

Watch for:

  • aspiration

    • food caught in trachea/lungs 

    • “Silent” aspiration:


Nutrition therapy l.jpg

Nutrition Therapy

  • Individualized according to pt.’s particular swallowing problem

  • Mechanical soft “solids” and smooth or thickened liquids are easiest to handle

  • Tube feedings may be necessary

    • TF into stomach still risks aspiration pneumonia

    • Safer:

Disorders of the esophagus and stomach l.jpg

Disorders of the Esophagus and Stomach

Indigestion and Reflux Esophagitis (GERD)

  • Indigestion (dyspepsia) = vague term for epigastric pain, fullness, early satiety, belching, hiccups, heartburn and regurgitation of stomach acid into the esophagus.


Slide17 l.jpg

  • Recurrent acid reflux irritation of esophageal mucosa 

  • Severe inflammation may cause:


Slide18 l.jpg

  • Causes


Slide19 l.jpg

Nutrition Therapy

  • Alleviate reflux and irritation by

  • “CAPA-free diet” (peptic ulcer diet)

  • Foods that decrease LES pressure or increase acid secretion:


Slide20 l.jpg

  • Small meals w/ fluids between meals

  • Eat slowly, relax, chew food thoroughly

  • Elevate head of bed and/or refrain from lying down after eating.

  • Avoid tight clothing that increases abdominal pressure.


Slide21 l.jpg

Drug Therapy

  • Antacids

  • Antiulcer agents

  • Cholinergics


Hiatal hernia l.jpg

Hiatal Hernia –

Protrusion of stomach into the chest cavity through the esophageal hiatus of the diaphragm

Normally, the LES sits right in the hiatus of the diaphragm and is reinforced by it.


Slide23 l.jpg

Cause: hiatus weakens allowing a portion of the stomach to protrude above the diaphragm.

Most common: “sliding” hiatal hernia.

Pressure generated by the hernia is sufficient to force acidic stomach contents into the esophagus.

Nutrition Therapy

Same as for reflux esophagitis.


Gastritis l.jpg

Gastritis

Inflammation of the stomach mucosa

  • pain, n/v.

  • Acute Gastritis:

    • asprin/alcohol use, food allergies, food poisoning, radiation therapy, metabolic stress, bacterial infection

    • n/v:


  • Slide25 l.jpg

    • Chronic Gastritis (atrophic gastritis):

      • May be associated w/ chronic disease or no known etiology.


    Peptic ulcer disease pud l.jpg

    Peptic Ulcer Disease (PUD)

    Erosion of cells of the top layer of mucosa (gastric, duodenal, esophageal).

    • Underlying layers exposed to stomach acid/peptidases.

    • If 

    • If 


    Slide28 l.jpg

    • Causes:

      • Disorders that cause excessive gastric acid production (less common)

      • Zollinger-Ellison syndrome: tumor in pancreas secretes excessive amts. of gastrin, causing hypersecretion of gastric acid,  ulcers


    Slide29 l.jpg

    • Nutrition Therapy

      • Minimizing pain/irritation, promoting healing.


    Slide30 l.jpg

    • Drugs

      • decrease gastric secretions or otherwise protect mucosa from further erosion.


    Slide31 l.jpg

    Gastric Surgery

    • Gastrectomy


    Slide32 l.jpg

    • Pyloroplasty


    Slide33 l.jpg

    • Gastric partitioning


    Slide34 l.jpg

    • Gastric Bypass


    Slide35 l.jpg

    • Nutritional consequences

      • If duodenum is bypassed:

        •  absorption of:

        • Patients are required to take nutritional supplements that usually prevent these deficiencies.

      • Dumping Syndrome:

        Mr. C had extensive gastric resection 1 wk ago, and has just begun to eat solids. About 15 minutes after eating he begins to feel weak and dizzy. He looks pale, his heart beats rapidly, and he breaks out into a sweat. Shortly thereafter, he develops diarrhea. What has happened?


    Slide36 l.jpg

    • Pylorus removed

    • Partially digested food is “dumped” into the jejunum

    • Fluid from body (capillaries) enters jejunum

    • Result:


    Slide38 l.jpg

    The pt. may experience the same symptoms again a few hours later… why?

    • Most people who experience dumping gradually adapt to a fairly regular diet.


    Slide39 l.jpg

    Nutrition Therapy: The Post-Gastrectomy Diet

    • NPO post-surgically for several days.

      • Advanced to liquids, then solids.

    • High protein, moderate fat

    • ADAT (close monitoring of tolerances)

    • Monitor fluid and lytes/hydration


    Slide40 l.jpg

    • Gastric bypass patients:

      • 1 week

      • 2 weeks

      • 2 weeks

      • 2 weeks


    Nutrition related gastrectomy complications l.jpg

    Nutrition-related Gastrectomy Complications

    • Weight loss, malabsorption, nutrient deficiencies.

      • Limited intake 2 early satiety, post-surgical pain, & dumping

      • Reflux esophagitis

      • Prot and fat malabsorption

        • Normally, food entering the duodenum triggers the release of hormones such as CCKsecretion of digestive enzymes & bile.

        • Duodenum bypassed: fat D&A interrupted.

        • Accelerated transit of food  absorption


    Slide42 l.jpg

    • Anemia – Fe-deficiency common after gastric surgery. (may take time to show up)
