Gastric emptying - Definition


Definition


The term emptying simply means to empty the contents of something. In medicine, gastric emptying is therefore a natural process consisting of ejecting the stomach's contents. When the body is functioning normally, this occurs a few hours after eating. It can, nevertheless, be delayed or accelerated by certain conditions, such as diabetes, gastric ulcers, or neurological disorders. Gastric emptying can also be artificially instigated, a process called gastric lavage, primarily performed in specific cases of acute poisoning from certain substances, though the levels of efficiency are debatable.
