What you will learn
Join this webinar to understand the advantages of High Resolution Manometry (HRM) and the indications for esophageal motility testing using HRM.
After the completion of this training module, participants shall be able to:
- Understand the advantages of High Resolution Manometry (HRM)
- Understand the indications for esophageal motility testing using HRM
- Identify protocols to be followed in performing a clinical motility study
- Interpret HRM results using published analysis criteria
The highlights of this training module include:
- Common indications for performing motility studies
- Application of HRM in clinical practice. A typical clinical motility protocol shall be described
- Case-based examples of motility disorders and their clinical relevance, e.g. review and curve interpretation of achalasia and distal esophageal spasm
- Classification of esophageal dysmotility and dysfunction
Who should attend?
Physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants and other health care professionals.
