Product Description   GI Motility Testing: A Laboratory and Office Handbook is a comprehensive and practical book that describes how to properly perform and interpret GI motility tests in conjunction with learning GI motility and neurogastroenterology.   Drs. Henry P. Parkman, Richard W. McCallum, Satish S.C. Rao, and their contributors carefully detail the wide range of procedures that are used for the evaluation of patients in the GI motility laboratory. Inside GI Motility Testing, each chapter has been comprehensively written and fully illustrated with examples of tracings and studies. This detailed bookdiscusses the most up-to-date equipment and technology, while providing a solid understanding of normal and abnormal manometry patterns as well as information on billing and coding.   Some Chapter Topics Include: Impedance Studies, High Resolution Manometry and Sensitivity Testing in Assessing Esophageal Disorders Gastric Emptying Scintigraphy Breath Testing for Carbohydrate Malabsorption and Bacterial Overgrowth Assessment of Gut Transit with Radiopaque Markers and Scintigraphy Novel Tests such as Wireless Motility Capsule for Evaluation of Regional and Whole Gut Transit/Motility Functional Brain Imaging in GI Neurophysiology Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Gastroparesis Irritable Bowel Syndrome Constipation Fecal Incontinence   GI Motility Testing: A Laboratory and Office Handbook carefully explains how to integrate diagnostic information into decision making for day-to-day patient care, making it ideal for gastroenterologists, surgeons, GI fellows , internists, physician assistants, technicians, nurses, and nurse practitioners. Review  "...this disorder focused part of the book makes the book cohesive as a stand-alone publication because it ties the technical and clinical aspects of the testing procedures together. Overall, this text makes an important contribution to the gastroenterology literature. No other single text exists on the topic of this comprehensive list of GI testing modalities written with not only the physician, but nurses and technical staff in mind." -  "I find this book a useful reference. The sheer breadth of topics covered is probably its greatest strength."   — Lisbeth A. Selby, MD , University of Kentucky College of Medicine, Doody Enterprises Inc. About the Author   Henry P. Parkman, MD, is Professor of Medicine in the Gastroenterology Section of the Department of Medicine at Temple University School of Medicine. Dr. Parkman’s gastroenterology training began with a GI fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. His research investigated the inhibitory neural circuitry of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES)—the barrier preventing gastroesophageal reflux. At the University of Pennsylvania, he also compared the clinical outcomes and costs of pneumatic dilation and surgical esophagomyotomy for treatment of patients with achalasia, a disorder involving abnormal LES neural control. Dr. Parkman extended his research training with a National Institutes of Health research training fellowship in the Department of Physiology at Mayo Clinic where he studied the inferior mesenteric ganglion and its involvement in colonic motility.     Dr. Parkman has been at Temple University School of Medicine for 20 years where he is Director of the Clinical GI Motility Laboratory at Temple University Hospital. He has developed expertise in a comprehensive array of GI motility tests for clinical evaluation of patients, including specialized tests of gastric motility. His clinical research studies have focused primarily on esophageal and gastric motility in normal individuals and on clinical motility disorders of the esophagus and stomach. His main clinical focus has been treating patients with GI motility disorders, primarily gastroparesis. Dr. Parkman is a past President of the American Neurogastroenterology and Motility Society. Dr. Parkman has been co-direct
