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.
