Factors Affecting Nocturnal GERD

  • Decreased Salivation – saliva contains a natural bicarbonate that actually reduces the acid levels in the stomach.
  • Decreased Swallowing
  • Decreased Gravity Mediated Drainage – lying flat does not allow gravity to keep the contents of the stomach in its place.
  • Decreased Perception of Heartburn – sleep paralysis.

Which Leads to:
Increased and prolonged exposure of the esophagus to acid reflux – Often without patient knowledge.
