Anatomy and Physiology: An Introduction

This video resource shows students how the body absorbs lipids differently from carbohydrates and proteins. Students will learn when lipids enter the small intestine, the gall bladder is triggered to release bile into the duodenum in order to emulsify the lipids. The video resource then goes on to describe how large lipoprotein particles transport the decomposed lipids from the intestines to lymphatic ducts, while fatty acids enter systemic circulation via the thoracic lymphatic duct, which leads into the superior vena cava.
