Wireless pH monitoring systems also known as catheter-free pH monitoring systems. pH monitoring is a procedure used for measuring and monitoring the acidity or alkalinity of gastric reflux. It is likely to be used for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and provides information about the symptoms and causes of the disease. Traditional pH monitoring systems are inconvenient, uncomfortable and interfere in the normal activities, which is likely to affect the result. In traditional pH monitoring systems, a catheter is used to monitor the pH of the stomach. It is passed trans-nasally into the oesophagus of the patient. An alternative device to traditional pH monitoring systems, i.e. a catheter-free wireless pH monitoring system, has been introduced, which is convenient to use, easy to handle and does not interfere with the body’s activities. During an endoscopy, the wireless pH monitoring system monitors and records the information of the stomach and oesophagus track through a small pH capsule that is attached temporarily to the wall of the oesophagus, following which the pH records are noted and transmitted to a receiver. These advantages of wireless pH monitoring systems over traditional pH monitoring systems increases the demand for wireless pH monitoring systems.
Wireless pH Monitoring Systems Market: Drivers and Restraints
With wireless pH monitoring systems, patients can perform their daily activities as they improve the tolerance rate of patients. Wireless pH monitoring systems use radiotelemetry that senses the pH and transmits the signal to the receiver. Wireless pH monitoring systems are more capable of increasing the recording periods as compared to traditional pH monitoring systems. These factors are driving the wireless pH monitoring systems market. However, there is a possibility of the overestimation of records collected through wireless pH monitoring systems because these systems cannot distinguish acid swallow from acid reflux. Moreover, short reflux episodes cannot be recorded due to low sampling rate. Patients with functional disorders are likely to experience chest pain and discomfort due to the placement of a pH capsule in the oesophagus wall due to which it needs to be removed. This can affect the recording performed by the capsule. In addition, the cost of wireless pH monitoring systems is high as compared to traditional pH monitoring systems. These factors are likely to retrain the wireless pH monitoring systems market.
