This is an esophageal motility study to assess motor function of the upper esophageal sphincter, esophageal body and lower esophageal sphincter. During the test, a thin pressure sensitive tube is passed through your nose, down the esophagus, and into your stomach. Before the procedure, you receive numbing medicine inside the nose. This helps make the insertion on the tube less uncomfortable.
