Gastrointestinal function tests
All relevant gastroenterological tests are carried out in our functional laboratory:
Esophageal manometry (high-resolution manometry including impedance determination):
A method of oesophageal dysfunction diagnostic in which the intraluminal esophageal pressure, e.g. in the case of suspicion of relaxation of the musculature, is measured.
Intraday Esophageal pH Metry:
The long-term esophageal pH metry detects the reflux of gastric acid in the esophagus and thus provides direct and quantitative evidence of gastroesophageal reflux. The long-term pH-metry of the stomach, on the other hand, directly and quantitatively measures the acid production in the stomach.
H2 breath tests (lactose, lactulose, fructose, glucose H2 breath tests):
These clinical tests are used to determine milk sugar intolerance, the intolerance of other sugars or to detect bacterial bad settlement in the small intestine.
