Summary
Brief summary
Gastric reflux into the oesophagus may further lung damage in respiratory disease. The
proportion of adults with chronic lung disease and gastric reflux is unknown. Adults with
this disease regularly complete physiotherapy but the contribution of physiotherapy to reflux
is unknown. This study will measure gastric reflux in adults with chronic lung disease, using
24 hour acid monitoring. It is anticipated that approximately 50% of adults with chronic lung
disease will have gastric reflux. After monitoring, the number of gastric reflux episodes
will be calculated. The results will identify the extent of the gastric reflux problem in
these patients and will enable appropriate medical treatment and modifications to
physiotherapy, which may improve lung function and quality of life.
