HRPM NOW AVAILABLE IN THE LABORIE SOFTWARE
High-Resolution manometry has traditionally been utilized in gastroenterology diagnostic clinical and research applications, and it is recently finding new and important applications in speech pathology and laryngology practices as a growing number of academic institutions are conducting research using High-Resolution Manometry for Oropharyngeal Dysphagia. Incorporating HRM into their swallowing practice allows the ENTs and SLPs to evaluate patients to improve therapeutic interventions.
High-Resolution Pharyngeal Manometry International Working Group was formed in the effort to establish a consensus on methodology, protocol, and outcome metrics for high-resolution pharyngeal manometry (HRPM) with consideration of impedance as an adjunct modality. The Working Group recommended a protocol on performing HRPM and a core outcomes set of pressure and/or impedance-derived swallow metrics for HRPM.¹
