August 8, 2024 @12 PM ET



Allison M. Becker, MSN (c), RN

NYU Center for Esophageal Health  


High-resolution esophageal manometry (HREM) is a diagnostic tool to evaluate esophageal motility patterns.  HREM measures intraluminal pressure activity of the esophagus, providing contractile patterns of the body of the esophagus as well as comments on lower esophageal sphincter activity. In this webinar, we will discuss how the procedure is performed, which patient population would benefit from this procedure and what symptoms it is indicated for, and lastly how to incorporate the new Chicago 4.0 protocol guidelines and what diagnostic improvements it provides.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:

  1. Discuss utility of HREM

  2. Identify the adjustments of the Chicago 4.0 protocol  

  3. Distinguish the correct protocol to perform using Chicago 4.0 additions.
