I'm currently doing the 24 hour impedance testing and I just wanted to thank Chris for the link about his experience with this testing. I read it last night. Today when I went in for the procedure, the nurse had me seated as she tried to put the wire down, and she could not do it. Neither could the second nurse. They told me some patients just could not have the testing done because their passages were too small.

So anyhow, I remembered from Chris's link that he had the wire inserted while lying down. I asked the nurses if they could try it this way. They were reluctant and skeptical, but I told them I really needed the info from this test, and could they just try. Finally they agreed, and it worked. So thanks Chris, we couldn't have done it without you! Additionally, probably fewer patients will now be told that the procedure won't work for them.
