The article compares the effectiveness of wireless Bravo and catheter mounted antimony electrode systems in monitoring hydrogen-ion concentration (pH). Previous studies established that the Bravo system recorded fewer reflux events and the effect on overall acid exposure was more limited. To define the physiology of these events, studies combining pH monitoring and multichannel intraluminal impedance are required.
