Multichannel intraluminal impedance (MII) provides a method to assess the movement of fluids, solids, and air in the esophagus and in the paediatric practice it is particularly useful for the investigation of children with suspected gastro-esophageal reflux.

This state of the art course is designed to provide an overview of the application of MII studies in children through a combination of lectures, interactive demonstrations and hands-on exercises. The structure of the program has been specifically tailored to address the needs of health professionals who perform and interpret MII studies.

Expert Paediatric Gastroenterologists will introduce delegates in the technicalities of the test as well as in analysing and reporting through a series of case studies.

Learning Objectives:

  • To have an understanding of the technicalities (catheters, recording devices, software, patient instruction and protocol) of MII
  • To understand the indications, analysis and reporting of MII studies
  • To understand the limitations, complications and futures perspectives of MII

You should attend if you are a:

  • Trainee/Consultant in General Paediatrics
  • Trainee/Consultant in Paediatric Gastroenterology
  • Specialist Nurse in Paediatric Gastroenterology 

To make it as practical as possible, this course will be limited to 20 people.

Following this year’s success with the study day on Nutritional Management of Gastrointestinal Conditions, the Paediatric Gastro Academy is happy to announce that we will be hosting this study day again in March 2015. As before, we have combined lectures for presentation of clinical evidence with workshops to consider the practical aspects.  Areas in which nutritional management is particularly challenging have been considered such as; functional gastrointestinal disorders and colic. We will also discuss the evidence behind specialist feeds for gastrointestinal disorders and this will be followed with workshops on elimination diets and also vitamin and mineral supplementation. Due to the growing interest in the gut-brain-axis we have this year invited an oversees speaker for our state of the art lecture to introduce this topic and demonstrate the impact of specific nutrients on this. We are looking forward to welcoming any healthcare professional dealing with or interested in nutrition in gastrointestinal disorders.
