MV Current diagnostic tests for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) include endoscopy, pH or impedance-pH monitoring, and barium swallow. Endoscopy may reveal esophagitis that would point to GERD; however, 70% to 80% of patients with GERD often have a normal endoscopy. Therefore, clinicians rely on other tests, such as pH or impedance-pH monitoring. pH monitoring can be performed using either a catheter-based system or a wireless system. The challenges with either test are the cost of the… CONTINUE READING
