Medical University of South Carolina
Esophageal Function Laboratory Clinical Coordinator
Esophageal high-resolution manometry (HRM) is the current state-of-the-art diagnostic tool to evaluate esophageal motility patterns. HRM measures intraluminal pressure activity in the gastrointestinal tract using a series of closely spaced pressure sensors. In this webinar, we will discuss how the procedure is performed, which patient population would benefit from this procedure, how to interpret the results and lastly, the clinical applicability of the test results.
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
Define High-Resolution Manometry (HRM)
List the indications for the procedure
Identify normal and abnormal findings
Janice is currently the Clinical and Research Coordinator, Esophageal Function Laboratory, Digestive Disease Center, Endoscopy at the Medical University at South Carolina. In this capacity, Janice independently performs and acts as a pre-reader for High Resolution Impedance Manometry as well as the coordinator for an advance motility training course for clinicians from other facilities. She has published over 50 articles in peer-reviewed journals, and has lectured at numerous regional and national medical/nursing conferences.
