What’s Going On?

Three electrodes, just like they use for an EKG are placed on your midsection. These detect when your nervous system sends the message to your upper digestive system to let things into and through your stomach. This is why you are asked to drink some water during the test.

This allows the doctor to recognize when a change measured by the other electrodes may have been caused by something other than digestion; like if you shift position or even ask a question. This is why you are tested in a comfortable chair, in a quiet room, and asked to relax quietly during the test!
