• intestinal
  • The present invention teaches a method and a system for ambulatory recording of the pH and the presence of various materials in compartments of the gastro-intestinal tract. (google.com)
  • Such components may however be deleterious only in certain activated stages defined by the pH of the gastro-intestinal compartment, or the pH of the fluid that the component is in. (google.com)
  • Helicobacter
  • Achlorhydria associated with Helicobacter pylori infection may respond to H pylori eradication therapy, although resumption of gastric acid secretion may only be partial and it may not always reverse the condition completely. (wikipedia.org)
  • parietal cells
  • The slowing of the body's basal metabolic rate associated with hypothyroidism Pernicious anemia where there is antibody production against parietal cells which normally produce gastric acid. (wikipedia.org)
  • symptoms
  • You will wear this monitor on a strap and will be asked to keep a diary of your symptoms and activity over the next 24 hours. (health.am)
  • Heart attack symptoms and esophageal symptoms can be very similar, as the heart and esophagus use the same nerve supply. (wikipedia.org)
  • Relief of symptoms 5 to 10 minutes after the administration of viscous lidocaine and an antacid increases the suspicion that the pain is esophageal in origin. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1979, the link between these airway symptoms and reflux of gastric contents was first documented. (wikipedia.org)
  • Extraesophageal symptoms result from exposure of the upper aerodigestive tract to gastric contents. (wikipedia.org)
  • acidic
  • Since acidic pH facilitates the absorption of iron, achlorhydric patients often develop iron deficiency anemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • perforation
  • rarely, an ulcer can lead to a gastric or duodenal perforation, which leads to acute peritonitis, extreme, stabbing pain, and requires immediate surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • cancer
  • Objective: The objective of this study consist in underlining of several particular aspects of ultrasound examination in patients with gastric cancer, like identification of the main morphological and physiological characteristics of the esophagojejunal anastomosis, jejunal loop emptying evaluation and detailing of the US parameters in following-up of blind duodenal loop. (blogs.com)
  • Patients and Method: 4600 consecutives patients were included in a computed soft protocol dedicated to detection of gastric cancer. (blogs.com)
  • Hydrogen
  • Sensitivity of key signals in the NMR spectrum to small changes in pH suggested that the uracil ring exists in a keto/enol tautomeric relationship, where a hydrogen transfer results in two distinct structures (Figure 2). (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Because this method is associated with nasal and pharyngeal discomfort and rhinorrhea, patients may have limited their activity and become more sedentary during the monitored period. (wikipedia.org)
  • Norfloxacin is used for prevention of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis in cirrhotic patients who have a low ascites fluid protein level, impaired renal function, severe liver disease, have had a prior episode of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, or esophageal variceal bleeding. (wikipedia.org)
  • assess
  • It provides direct physiologic measurement of acid in the esophagus and is the most objective method to document reflux disease, assess the severity of the disease and monitor the response of the disease to medical or surgical treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • prevalence
  • The invention also reports the pH pattern in relation to the prevalence of the materials, and analyses to which degree such materials are in active or inactive states in their normal or foreign compartments. (google.com)
