A panel of experts considers continuous ambulatory oesophageal pH monitoring (CAOpHM) both safe and effective for adults with clear symptoms of oesophageal damage. Dr Michael Glade, who works in the department of Technology Assessment at the American Medical Association sent a Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technology Assessment (DATTA) questionnaire to 118 physicians with recognised expertise in reflux, oesophageal disease, or the use of CAOpHM in the diagnosis of non-cardiac chest pain. The results are published in JAMA (August 23/30th).
