Gases in the digestive system of humans


The main source of gases in the digestive system is the wrong habits of swallowing the air with eating or drinking every time the ingestion of air enters the average 17.7 ml of air to the stomach.

In this way, about 2,600 milliliters of air enter the stomach per day. The presence of gases in the device

The amount of air entering the small intestine is affected by the position of the body in the position of expansion is hard to burp and therefore the air bubble formed in the stomach is retained over the liquid that covers the point of contact between the esophagus and stomach, leading to the transmission of most of the gases from the stomach to the small intestine.

 Abdominal distension and indigestion can occur after surgery to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Digestive is related to several additional sources:

The spread of gas from the blood stream to the digestive system as well as production by intestinal bacteria and the chemical reaction between bicarbonate and between the acid produced in the stomach.

The gas is extracted from the digestive system by the process of burping as well as air out of the anus.

Adsorption is the accumulation of atoms or molecules on the surface of the material by the intestinal bacteria and spread back to the blood stream.

There are five basic types of gases: nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen. These are 99% of the gases in the digestive system.

The relative composition of these gases varies along the digestive system. In the periods when the gases are released in large quantities, gas measurement shows a high concentration of hydrogen gas and carbon dioxide compared with a low concentration of nitrogen.

 The amount of air in the gastrointestinal tract is measured by a device called scaling or by stencil, which is the introduction of a drop-drop treatment of argon gas into the digestive system in order to free it from the gases accumulated in this cavity.

The proper digestive system contains less than 200 milliliters of gases. It has been shown that the emission of gases is at a rate of 476 - 1,491 milliliters per day and the gas through the digestive system is fast and lasts about 5 - 10 minutes.

Healthy people who feed on natural food release the gases about 10 times a day, knowing that the upper limit of the normal situation is the release of gas about 20 times a day.

  No common gases are known to have any foul odor, but gases that may be suspected of being a source of unpleasant odors, especially indole and catheters are less important than sulfuric gases.

Methane - ethyl and biphenyl - are the two main gases among the gases that emit odors. An additional gas, methane, is also called marsh gas, which is produced exclusively by large intestinal bacteria. About one-third of the adult population releases this gas more than normal

There is no relationship between sex or age and the frequency of gas release among many food types. The following types of foods were investigated: lactose, milk sugar and legumes. We should know that the diet, which makes up about 50% of pulses and meat, causes the amount of gases released to rise at least ten times the normal rate. People with low milk sugar or lactose were twice as likely to consume 34 grams of lactose per day (480 milliliters of milk equals 240 milliliters of yogurt and 56 grams of hard cheese).

Methods of prevention of gas :-

In some cases, gases can be prevented and prevented by changing eating and drinking habits and patterns. In other cases, gas is a symptom of a disease that requires treatment.
Some of the foods that cause gas to be in larger quantities such as:
Broccoli vegetables, cabbage, cauliflower cucumbers, peppers, green onions, peas, radishes and many others. As well as beans and other legumes.
Some of the fruits are also: - banana, peach, raisin, apple, wheat and wheat bran.

eggs. Soft drinks, fruit juices, beer and alcohol. Fatty foods and fried foods. Your sugar and alternatives.
Milk and its products, especially in people who are sensitive to lactose, the main sugar in milk.
Coated foods that contain lactose such as fodder cereals and salad sauces.
Gases that are formed after eating meat or eggs generally have unpleasant odors, while the gases that are formed after eating fruits and vegetables by comparison do not produce unpleasant odors.
Treatment of gases

Changing the diet to prevent gas formation alone is generally helpful only in the case of people who do not tolerate milk sugar or fruit sugar.

The feeling of bloating and the presence of gases in the cavity of the small intestine are considered a type of irritable colon syndrome and the treatment of gases is selected according to the diagnosis. Here are the ways to get rid of gases and prevent them

The drugs help to relax smooth muscles, some of which are given in cases of irritable colon, the main complaint of which is abdominal pain, which can slow down and inhibit bowel movement, but increases the feeling of swelling and accelerated substances such as cesabrid and mitochloramide. New in this group is the spyware.

Other drugs that have been successfully tested but are partly made up of combinations based on activated charcoal and other enzymatic preparations are available.
