This is possible with the use of ambulatory esophageal pH monitoring, first described by Miller55 in 1964. 14 The test is performed using a small pH electrode passed transnasally and placed 5 cm above the upper border of the LES as measured by manometry. Different probes are available, but bipolar glass electrodes are preferred because of their greater reliability57 and the elimination of an external reference electrode. The electrode is connected to an external portable solid-state data logger and pH values of the distal esophagus are continuously recorded, at 4-second intervals, for 24 hours, a complete circadian cycle.

The transducers are calibrated at 0 and 50 mm Hg by immersion in a water column before and after the test. Eventual drifts must not exceed 8 mm Hg to make the test reliable. ), and data are stored at an 8 Hz sampling rate.
