ASGE is proud to present “Endoscopy Live”, a virtual endoLIVE signature series, featuring LIVE endoscopy broadcasts from the world’s leading endoscopy centers and clinicians. ASGE members who are GI Fellows and practicing clinicians can register for this complimentary member benefit program!

This accredited CME and MOC educational program is organized by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE). This educational initiative is based upon the identified need to provide our 14,000 members with practical information on those patients who present symptoms that require a diagnostic workup or require ongoing management for GERD and Barrett’s Esophagus often encountered in many gastroenterology practices. This education will be based on the principles from the cognitive, behavioral, and decision sciences, such that education can be designed to accelerate understanding of new concepts, facilitate the acquisition of new behaviors, and most importantly, increase retention, recall, and appropriate utilization of new information at the point-of-care.

The session integrated didactic overviews, case-based question presentations, and video cases followed by panel moderation of key leading expert insights in various GERD and Barrett’s Esophagus clinical areas. Also included, is an overview of current and ongoing research presentation highlighted from DDW 2021.
Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

  • Define prevalence of GERD and how it results from anatomic failure of the lower esophageal sphincter
  • Explain how lifestyle, medications and surgery all play a role in the therapy of patients with increasingly severe GERD
  • List the importance of the four key tests to workup GERD:  EGD, pH, Manometry and UGI
  • Compare and Contrast various endoscopic diagnostics and treatments of Barrett’s Esophagus are conducted and the rationale for each
  • Discuss selected GERD and BE research abstracts presented from DDW 2021 and published in GIE (May 2021)

Optimal Viewing Experience in GI Leap
Although all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, we currently recommend using Chrome for the best functionality when accessing GI Leap. Please note that Internet Explorer is not a supported browser. Follow these tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
