In brief: Measures reflux

Ph testing in the esophagus allows for an objective measurement of gerd or reflux events and allows for symptom correlation.
There are buttons programmed on the device to associate your symptoms. When you have a symptom, you press a button and a correlation is made with a reflux event. This type of testing can be done with pH combined impedance testing that measures acid and nonacid reflux.
