The sensitivity and specificity of the sensor to predict esophageal acid exposure > 5% of time was 91% and 93%, respectively. This new probe is less expensive, disposable, easier to apply than the 24-hour pH probe and does not require recording equipment to be carried. Thus, there is the potential for this new method to greatly simplify esophageal pH measurements. 131 Erosive esophagitis (Savary–Miller grade 1 or worse) was identified in a third of patients with symptoms. Whether the patient had erosive disease or not, the frequency of heartburn and acid regurgitation correlated with median esophageal acid exposure time measured by 24-hour pH monitoring.

Abnormal score is placed 2 SD above the mean. This may not be valid as values do not follow a normal distribution 90% sensitivity and specificity Others have not reported the same results with the same criteria45 Schindlbeck et al.
