Impedance-pH-monitor (Impedanceacidomonitor) Gastroscan-IAM is designed for the multichannel simultaneously measures the intraluminal impedance and acidity in a gastrointestinal tract for the study of both acid and nonacid gastroesophageal reflux. Russian specification of the Gastroscan-IAM is ИАМ-01, ТУ 9442-011-13306657-2011.
The impedance-pH monitoring diagnostic test determines the frequency of reflux episodes and the time relationship of reflux episodes and symptoms. The impedance-pH monitoring test determines if the patient's symptoms are related to acid reflux, related to nonacid reflux, or not related to reflux of any type. A positive GERD diagnosis is made if acid or nonacid reflux precedes symptoms in a statistically meaningful manner.
measures the intraluminal impedance of the 7 canneles
simultaneously measures the acidity in three locations of a gastrointestinal tract in the range from 1.1 to 9.2 pH in 24 hours; the time interval between measurements is 1 sec.
detects both acid and nonacid bolus movement and acid and nonacid gastroesophageal reflux.
provides registration of the patient and his actions with the keyboard located on the front panel
current results of impedance and pH measurements can be displayed directly recording unit during the study
handles the information stored on your computer
displays information about the state of the upper gastrointestinal tract
saves the results of a study in the database
reveals the pathology of the gastrointestinal tract and individual choice of drug therapy
Z-pH-catheters for impedance-pH-metry
The Istok-Sistema has developed and manufactures special Z-pH-catheters for simultaneous measurements of impedance and acidity in the gastrointestinal tract. Such Z-pH-catheters may contain a different number of electrodes for impedance measurements and pH electrodes depending on the wishes of the customer.
Gastroscan-IAM allows you to define different types of reflux
