    Multichannel intraluminal impedance (MII) provides a method to assess the movement of fluids, solids, and air in the esophagus and in paediatric practice is increasingly used for the investigation of children with suspected gastro-esophageal reflux disease. It is clear, however, that analysis of MII and clinical application requires expertise.

    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.

    Expert Paediatric Gastroenterologists will introduce delegates in the technicalities of the test as well as in analysing and reporting through a series of patient case studies.

    Learning Objectives:
    • To have an understanding of the technicalities (catheters, recording devices, software, patient instruction and protocol) of MII
    • To understand the indications, analysis and reporting of MII studies
    • To understand the limitations, complications and futures perspectives of MII

    You should attend if you are a:
    • Trainee/Consultant in General Paediatrics
    • Trainee/Consultant in Paediatric Gastroenterology
    • Specialist Nurse / physiologist in Paediatric Gastroenterology
