In brief: EM studies

Esophageal manometry (em) is a probe, typically passed transnasally, into your esophagus.
The probe is sensitive to pressures generated when esophagus muscles contract during swallowing. Probe measures muscle coordination during swallowing, as well as function & effectiveness of both upper & lower esophageal sphincters. Motility disorders, situational spasms, & gerd contributants are measured.
