My Child Needs a pH Probe Study. What Does That Mean?

Girl after PH Probe Study

The esophagus — also known as the feeding tube — is a muscular tube that brings food and liquid from the mouth to the stomach.

A pH probe study uses a small tube with a sensor attached to record acid levels in your child’s stomach over the course of 18 to 24 hours. These measurements can help diagnose acid reflux or test how well antacids are working to treat this condition.

Learn more about pH probe studies from the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN).
