This test is performed to identify the issues arising from pressure and movement in the oesophagus. It basically measures the muscle coordination and strength of the oesophagus while swallowing.
The patient must be on an empty stomach with 6-8 hours or overnight fasting and should not take any meals including water after midnight.
The patient must inform the doctor about their medical history and underlying medical conditions. Our expert doctors provide the Manometry Test in India making sure the patient feel secure.

The manometry probe, which is a thin and pressure-sensitive tube, will be passed through the nose and guided towards the stomach via the oesophagus.
A local anaesthetic jelly will be applied to the patient’s nostril to reduce the discomfort.
Slight discomfort may be experienced when the probe is inserted via the nose.
During the assessment of oesophageal motility, the patient will be asked to consume 5ml of water repeatedly.
After the completion of the procedure, the probe will be gently removed from the nose and the oesophagus. Consult with our Gastroenterologist in India to know more about the test.
