Taste, Smell & Gastrointestinal System
By: Allison Gallant, Chun (Andy) Yip, Julie Zasada, Karen Lee, Marie McNabb, & Kyleen Wong
Smell is defined as the detection and identification by sensory organs of airborne chemicals
Abnormal loss of smell is negative prognostic factor for specific neurodegenerative diseases
2 divisions: alimentary canal and accessory organs
Functions: digestion, absorbing nutrients and excreting waste
ACCESSORY ORGANS & GLANDS:
Chemical and mechanical digestion
3 pairs of salivary glands
Age-Related Changes of the Mouth
Risk of Aspiration Pneumonia
Esophagus connects the pharynx to the stomach
Age-Related Changes of the Esophagus
Gastric (peptic) ulcer
Cancer of the stomach
Age-Related Changes of the Stomach
Located in the upper left side of the abdominal cavity
Enzymes are used to aid in the chemical digestion of food
Where it all ends...
Major digestive organ that connects the stomach to the large intestine
Longest part of the alimentary canal, consist of 3 parts:
Majority of absorption occurs here
Last part of the GI tract
Leads from the small intestine to the rectum
Age-Related Changes of the Large Intestine
Majority of carriers remain asymptomatic
Many lifestyle risk factors
Diagnosis by ultrasonography
Treatment options include:
Diverticulosis and Diverticulitis:
Diverticulosis = pouches
Diverticulitis = inflammation and infection of pouches
Age-Related GI Tract Disorders
cancer of the esophagus
gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
gastric (peptic ulcer)
cancer of the stomach
cancer of the pancreas
diverticulosis and diverticulitis
cancer and colon and rectum
