Answer: Large venous air embolisms (centimeters) may lead to death if they become lodged in the heart. if big enough they can cause the heart to loose prime and as a result stop the bood from flowing from the right ventricle to the lungs. Gas embolism into an artery, termed arterial gas embolism, or AGE, is a more serious matter than in a vein, since a gas bubble in an artery may directly cause stoppage of blood flow to an area fed by the artery. The symptoms of AGE depend on the area of blood flow, and may be those of stroke or heart attack if the brain or heart, respectively, are affected. The amount of arterial gas embolism which causes symptoms depends on location, but in the brain may be a bubble with a volume only a fraction of a milliliters. (sourced from wikipedia)
Answer: It depends on what you mean by "warts" Warts are cause by a virus, so this virus in in the blood stream. HPV is the main cause of genital warts and is transmitted sexually. The virus attacks the cells of the skin, and causes warts to develop on the surface
Answer: The small intestines absorb all of the smaller portions of Fat,Carbohydrate, and protein. These absorptives include:Monoglycerides, DiGlycerides, Monopeptides, dipeptides,monosaccarides, and disaccharides (Sometimes triglycerides,tripeptides, and trisachharides) but not as often as you may hope.The enzymes from the Pancreas and Hepatocytes are the main thanksto breaking down these macronutrients into their individualportion. These macronutrients are absorbed in their simplified formthrough the small intestine. The small intestive also absorbs waterinto the blood, other vitamins, minerals, and any other neededphytonutrients into the blood for the circulation to cellularmetabolism. The Large intestine simply houses any leftover or uncessarynutrition that may or may not be needed during that time for thebodies needs. Most of the time any nutrition excreted through thelarge intestine is simply fat soluble vitamins (If not attatched tofatty acids during entero absoprtion) ...
Answer: The small intestine is about 6-7 meters long. The first portion is called the duodenum and is about 20-25 cm long. There are 4 parts to the duodenum: (1) superior portion, (2) descending poriton, (3) inferior protion, (4) ascending poriton. The second protion is called the Jejunum and the proximal 2/5 of the small intestine (excluding the duodenum). The last portion is called the Ileum and composes the distal 3/5 of the small intestine.
Answer: villi are the finger-like long projections of our small intestine. they absorb things into the blood for easy diffusion on materials i.e., to get energy from the food as the body cannot absorb them easily since food are complex. So they are broken down and diffused into the blood so that food burns in presence of oxygen to release energy.
