Fluid propulsion by cat intestinal segments under conditions requiring hydrostatic work.


The intrinsic ability of duodenal, jejunal, and ileal segments of cats to propel fluid by doing hydrostatic work was investigated in vitro. Segments of terminal ileum demonstrated two functional states. In the net propulsive state, propulsive complexes occurred at an average interval of 7.9 min. These complexes consisted of an initial phase characterized by… (More)
