abstract

  • The triple-electrode bifurcated adjustable pH probe provides a well-tolerated technique to identify true hypopharyngeal acid reflux episodes. When artifacts produced by meals and pseudoreflux are excluded, 90% of normal subjects show no episodes or a single episode over a 24-hour period.
