The pattern of gastric emptying: a new view of old results.

Abstract

1. Gastric emptying has until now been regarded as exponential in form, but this pattern does not account for all phases of a meal.2. A pattern of emptying in which the square root of the volume of meal remaining declines linearly with time has been shown to account for the experimental results with less error.
