The bolus has entered the esophagus and the esophageal swallow phase has been initiated. After the bolus has passed the UES, the sphincter will close. The peristaltic wave initiated by the swallow (primary peristalsis) moves further in distal direction with a propagating velocity of 3–5 cm/s. The peristaltic wave will have traversed the esophagus in about 10 s. Peristalsis ensures that passage of food is also possible in supine position; gravity thus only plays a minor role. If the esophagus is dilated in the absence of a swallowing, for example, during inflation of air during endoscopy, peristalsis will be triggered.
The UES relaxes and the pharyngeal constrictors contract so the bolus is moved in distal direction. 4. A peristaltic wave starts above the pharynx and moves in distal direction. This will push the bolus through the relaxed UES. The bolus has entered the esophagus and the esophageal swallow phase has been initiated. After the bolus has passed the UES, the sphincter will close. The peristaltic wave initiated by the swallow (primary peristalsis) moves further in distal direction with a propagating velocity of 3–5 cm/s.
This makes it possible to measure gastric emptying by measuring the concentration of 13CO2 repeatedly after ingestion of the isotope-labeled meal. The mathematical calculations required for this are rather complex. Often 13C-octanoic acid is used to label the meal, because octanoic acid is not broken down in the stomach, absorbed in the proximal small bowel, and then metabolized. Gastric emptying is the rate-limiting step in this process of labeled CO2 formation. The rate of gastric emptying as measured with the 13C breath test correlates well with the rate measured with the gold standard technique, scintigraphy.
