Disease relevance of Eructation


High impact information on Eructation

  • Two of seven and two of five patients with CF who received fish and olive oils, respectively, and one of eight and none of five subjects without CF discontinued taking the capsules before 6 weeks because of eructation or diarrhea [2].
  • CO2 of fermentation origin is added to the expired gas by both eructation and absorption and has a significant effect on R in the resting animal, but no effect on R during exercise [3].
  • Eructation starts with a contraction of the caudal C1 during a B-sequence when the cranial C1 is relaxed [4].
  • The addition of NaHCO3 results in the release of CO2 from solution and eventually from the rumen via eructation [5].
  • Before the sleeve was placed, administration of epinephrine resulted in an eructation interval of 0.84 +/- 0.09 minutes, which was significantly different from that in the same dogs given no drugs (P less than 0.004).(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)[6]

Chemical compound and disease context of Eructation

  • After dopamine infusion was stopped, rebounds of eructation rate and rumen motility were observed which disappeared when a constant intraruminal pressure was maintained, indicating that the rumen reacts to its own distention [7].
  • Effects of dopamine and serotonin on eructation rate and ruminal motility in sheep [7].
  • Before fundectomy, administration of metoclopramide or cisapride resulted in eructation intervals of 1.72 +/- 0.21 minutes and 1.39 +/- 0.02 minutes, respectively; these intervals were not significantly different from those measured in dogs not given drugs [8].
  • No difference was found between diazepam and dixyrazine, but they were both significantly superior to placebo in relieving anxiety, retching, and eructations [9].
  • The time between the first doses of medication and the attainment of good or excellent relief was also significantly shorter (P less than 0.01) in the bismuth subsalicylate-treated subjects for the individual symptoms of nausea, sense of fullness, heartburn and eructation [10].

Anatomical context of Eructation

  • Gas eructation function of the gastroesophageal sphincter (GES) was investigated in 6 conscious dogs before and after a sleeve was placed around the GES and gastric cardia and during IV infusion of a beta-adrenergic amine (epinephrine) [6].
