Abstract

Purpose of review: This commentary discusses recent developments in the methods available to pediatric otolaryngologists in the diagnosis of laryngopharyngeal reflux. Recent developments: The development of detachable wireless monitoring allows the otolaryngologists to perform their own pH monitoring. It can be deployed while performing other procedures, such as laryngoscopy and bronchoscopy. The procedure to insert the probe and collect data is described. Summary: It is hoped that the pH probe will play an important role in understanding the pathological role of pharyngeal reflux in terms of laryngeal, pharyngeal, sinus and ear pathology.
