GMMS-2001pH / GMMS-2002pH
Enables 24-hour ambulatory pH recording
Patient-friendly; small and light (155g)
Classifies the degree of acid exposure into 4 categories, using the time ratio of acid reflux assessment less than pH 4 based on AFP score (see reference below)
Even after the administration of PPI, there exist some cases that the GERD symptoms, such as heartburn, can still be observed.
In such cases, pH monitoring acts as an effective means to assess the acid reflux more closely.
