Your digestive system is what allows your body to break down your daily consumption of food. The job of the digestive system is to do this in a way that the food can be absorbed and used or excreted. The digestive system is also the process by which the body breaks down food into smaller components that can be absorbed by the blood stream.
The digestion of food is usually divided into mechanical processing to reduce the size of food particles and chemical action to further reduce the size of particles and prepare them for absorption. Digestion can be broken down into four separate processes which are as follows:
- Ingestion – this is when the food is placed into the mouth
- Mechanical digestion and chemical digestion – otherwise known as mastication, which is when you tear and crush food as well as the churning of the stomach. This comes with the addition of chemicals (acid, bile, enzymes, and water), which break down complex molecules into simple structures
- Absorption – movement of nutrients from the digestive system to the circulatory and lymphatic capillaries through osmosis, active transport, and diffusion
- Egestion – Removal of undigested materials from the digestive tract through defecation
There are many different aspects that can cause damage to your digestive system such as a stab wound or industrial lacerations as well as seat belt pressure. If you have experienced damage to your digestive system as a result of trauma that was caused through no fault of your own then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
If you are involved in an accident that affects your digestive system it goes without saying that you should seek immediate medical treatment. This will also aid you if you do decide to pursue a compensation claim for the fact that you will have a medical record of the injuries that you sustained.
