Example text

An essential point to be remembered is that there are two separate parts to a rush : one, a wave of contraction traveling in the wall of the bowel, and the other, a column of fluid being pushed ahead through the lumen. It is easy to dissociate these two parts. Following a rush wave, there are commonly a number of little "scavenging waves" and little surges up and down the bowel. When a rush comes up against the closed ileocecal sphincter, it may be reflected so that it runs backward a little distance up the bowel.

They found that a stimulus produced a contraction locally and from this there ran away in both directions a wave of contraction which had more effect orad than caudad, as can be seen in Figure 1 4. When a bolus was put in the bowel it was forced caudad, but no sign of an advancing wave of inhibition could be detected.
