Testing and Diagnosing Reflux
Reflux symptoms can be associated with a variety of conditions, and the Bravo™ reflux capsule testing system is innovative in helping patients diagnose and understand the root cause of it.
With the Bravo™ reflux testing system, your gastroenterologist can work with you to evaluate the frequency and duration of acid reflux, which allows for a better diagnosis of the symptoms. The system has a 96-hour monitoring period, which helps patients improve their chances of detecting reflux events and have more prompt diagnoses of the associated symptoms.
