University of Zurich

Brief Summary:
Normal values for measurements of high resolution manometry in a protocol which includes isolated liquid swallows in upright and recumbent position, free drinking of water, a solid test meal and a postprandial observational period will be determined.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthy Other: Rice meal Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The investigators will recruit healthy volunteers and ask for study participation. After providing informed consent, participants will be questioned using standardized questionnaires assessing symptoms of reflux, dysphagia, gastrointestinal symptom burden and depression. Participants will be tested using our advanced protocol for high resolution esophageal manometry. This protocol includes individual liquid swallows, free drinking of water, a standardized test meal (200g rice) and a postprandial observational period. Normal values for liquid and solid swallows will be determined.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: rice meal
High resolution manometry will be performed. Esophageal function will be tested using liquid swallows, solid swallows and a test meal (200g rice)
Other: Rice meal



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Values for HRM data (IRP, DCI, DL) in healthy volunteers [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]
    Normal values for measurements of high resolution manometry in a protocol which includes isolated liquid swallows in upright and recumbent position, free drinking of water, a solid test meal


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. discomfort on a VAS from 1-10 for each type of measurement [ Time Frame: 1 hour ]
    Discomfort during different steps of the investigation
