In recent weeks, I have been reflecting on the unprecedented challenges that our community and our team at Memorial Medical Center have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. More specifically, I’ve been intentionally looking for every possible silver lining in a time when – let’s face it – we all need some positive news. We are always seeking new ways to enhance how we care for our community and advance our mission of Making Communities Healthier. I truly believe that adversity is one of the greatest paths to improvement, and improving is exactly what we have done despite the difficult circumstances. And the truth is: there are silver linings everywhere.

Heartburn affects about one-third of the population and is described as a burning pain or discomfort in the upper and midchest, possibly involving the neck and throat, that may worsen when lying down. Some common foods such as garlic, cookies, and orange juice stimulate increased stomach acid secretion setting the stage for heartburn. Proper diagnostic testing can help patients get the treatment that’s right for them. The Bravo™ Reflux Testing System used at Memorial Heartburn Center is the latest, least invasive and one of the most accurate tools for diagnosing heartburn. The Bravo Reflux Testing System uses a capsule placed on the wall of the esophagus (see diagram) to collect data for 96 hours. Patients are able to maintain their normal life while data is being collected. That data assists the physicians in determining the treatment plan. This technology enables Memorial Heartburn Center to deliver high quality patient care through a quick, definitive diagnosis for treating heartburn.
