Combined gastroscopy and BRAVO pH capsule procedure

Gastroscopy is a medical procedure that involves using a thin, flexible tube called an endoscope to examine the inside of the oesophagus, stomach and small intestine. It is commonly used to diagnose and treat a wide range of gastrointestinal conditions. One of the most common indications for gastroscopy is gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition in which stomach acid flows back into the oesophagus causing symptoms such as heartburn and acid regurgitation.

BRAVO pH capsule is a small, wireless device that is used to measure the pH levels in the oesophagus. It is often used in conjunction with gastroscopy to assess the severity of GERD and to determine the most appropriate treatment options.

The combined gastroscopy and BRAVO pH capsule procedure involves inserting an endoscope into the patient’s mouth and down the oesophagus. The endoscope has a camera attached to it, which allows the doctor to see the inside of the oesophagus, stomach and small intestine. Once the endoscope is in place, the BRAVO pH capsule is attached to the lining of the oesophagus using a small clip.

The BRAVO pH capsule is a small device that measures the pH level of the oesophagus. It transmits the data wirelessly to a receiver that is worn by the patient. The receiver is about the size of a pager and can be attached to the patient’s clothing.

The combined gastroscopy and BRAVO pH capsule procedure is a safe and effective way to diagnose and evaluate GERD. It allows the doctor to see the inside of the oesophagus, stomach and small intestine and to measure the pH levels in the oesophagus. This information can help the doctor to determine the most appropriate treatment options for the patient.

After the procedure, the patient may experience some discomfort or bloating. This is normal and usually goes away within a few hours. The patient may also need to avoid certain foods and medications for a period of time after the procedure.

In conclusion, the combined gastroscopy and BRAVO pH capsule procedure is a useful tool for diagnosing and evaluating GERD. It allows the doctor to see the inside of the oesophagus, stomach and small intestine, and to measure the pH levels in the oesophagus. If you are experiencing symptoms related to GERD, talk to your healthcare provider to see if this procedure is right for you.
