Comments: A pioneering work on digestion, based on experiments with patient Alexis St. Martin, whose stomach was exposed by a gunshot wound. Beaumont (1785-1853), a United States Army surgeon, was the first to study digestion and the movements of the stomach in a living person. During the patients recovery, through a permanent fistula, Beaumont was able to observe the process of digestion. Osler, 1972; GM 989.
