Prior to the course, alpHaFLEX Reflux Monitoring System was demonstrated and had received high attention from the doctors present. Thereafter, doctors were shown how to analyze and edit reflux tracings, generate a report as well as share typical and atypical case studies.

We were proud to introduce in the training our newly released alpHaLAB software with built-in Lyon Consensus including updated normal values of acid exposure, impedance episodes as well as MNBI and PSPW. Those quick updates are industry-leading and will help healthcare professionals further improve the clinical outcomes.
