HCl, NaOH (MERK) solution (0.1 M) was prepared for pH study
. Glassware was washed with deionized water and dried in oven for use.

Symptoms of airway obstruction were obtained from chart review during their clinical visit closest to time of the esophageal pH study
. These symptoms included shortness of breath and dyspnea.
When impedance testing is paired with the dual probe pH study
, it provides the most descriptive information.
A pH study
was done, in order to define the optimal pH of the chromium biosorption.
Whereas the elucidation of the kinetic process gives information over the mechanisms of sorption , the pH study
allows us to uncover the optimum condition under which the sorption process is favored.
At another institution, a pH study
demonstrated abnormal esophageal acid exposure, and a fundoplication was being considered.
In patients with persistent typical GORD symptoms despite twice daily PPI therapy, standard transnasal oesophageal pH monitoring is most likely to be normal, but where adequate acid suppression is in question, a 24-hour pH study
while taking medications can help to quantify the effectiveness of acid control.
Despite the presence of such symptoms, 80%-90% of patients with eosinophilic esophagitis will have a normal 24-hour pH study
. "So it does not appear that eosinophilic esophagitis causes abnormal acid reflux," he said at a meeting on skin disorders sponsored by Rady Children's Hospital.
The two most useful tests for children with suspected GERD include a 24-hour esophageal pH study
and upper endoscopy, he said.
Six study participants would have been misclassified as normal had their pH study
been limited to day 1.
