B   - Pelvic floor descent and puborectalis muscle relaxation
C   - Anal sphincter baseline pressure and recto?anal inhibitory reflex
D   - First sensation and urgency volumes
E   - Rectal pressure increase and anal canal decrease during beardown
3 - Propofol during Anorectal Manometry testing was associated with:
