These experiments examined relationships between initial osmolality and carbohydrate (CHO) composition of an infused solution and osmolality and water and CHO absorption in a test segment. A triple-lumen tube with a 10-cm mixing segment and a 40-cm test segment was passed into the duodenojejunum. The infusion port was approximately 10 cm beyond the pyloric sphincter. Perfusion solutions were hypotonic (186 mosmol/kg; solution A), isotonic (283 mosmol/kg; solution B), and hypertonic (403 mosmol… CONTINUE READING
