High-resolution esophageal manometry (HRM) is frequently used in the outpatient setting, but its role in the inpatient setting is unknown. We conducted a retrospective study of patients who underwent inpatient or outpatient HRM. Few differences were noted between groups and 28% of inpatients had an additional intervention. Tolerance of oral diet and diabetes were associated with a lower likelihood of additional intervention. Ultimately, the inpatient HRM group had unique characteristics and few subsequent interventions.
