What is reflux?
Reflux can also refer to the process in the body where fluids back up and travel in the wrong direction, especially acid reflux, where stomach fluid bubbles back up into the esophagus and burns the lining.
Reflux is a technique involving the condensation of vapors and the return of this condensate to the system from which it originated. It is used in industrial and laboratory distillations. It is also used in chemistry to supply energy to reactions over a long period of time.
What Causes Acid Reflux (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or GERD) Acid reflux occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (muscular valve) doesn't properly close allowing acid from the stomach to reflux back up the esophagus which can cause burning of the esophageal lining.

the reflux condenser condenses any of the vapour that is created while boiling the liquids it give a more accurate result then if u just let it evaporate off!! the reflux condenser allows vapor to cool and turn to liquid(returns to reaction vessel) the reflux condenser maintains constant, well defined reaction temperature the reflux condenser prevents loss of compound of liquid through evaporation the reflux condenser controls the rate of heating
Can cavities cause acid reflux... I know it can go the other way around... Cavities caused by acid reflux. But I never had reflux before this cavity.?
Gastroesophageal reflux is a physiological phenomenon that occurs with everyone. It turns into a disease when, somehow, the intensity and the frequency of episodes of reflux are significantly enhanced. So, some patients present with only the atypical symptoms of the gastroesophageal reflux disease. The atypical symptoms include: cavities, recurrent otitis, asthma, etc.
Laryngopharyngeal reflux, sometimes called silent reflux is similar to GERD, but the symptoms are different. At either end of the esophagus there are 2 sphincters, with Laryngopharyngeal reflux, these 2 muscles that keep the contents of the stomach in, are loose, so stomach content backs up into your larnyx, or nose.
That depends upon the cause. If you have a hiatal hernia causing reflux, then anything that decreases intra-abdominal pressure can improve the reflux. So, if you are obese and have a lot of intra-abdominal fat, losing weight may improve the reflux slightly. Also, what you eat can affect symptoms. Some foods, like tomatoes, oil, garlic, chocolate, and several others, can increase reflux symptoms.
Acid reflux, also known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is very common in teens. In fact, teen reflux is just as common as adult reflux, affecting approximately 5% of the population of the United States. Most teens with acid reflux experience heartburn, the sensation of food coming up the foodpipe or esophagus and throat pain. Other symptoms include nausea, chest pain, cough, difficulty swallowing or the sensation of food getting stuck in the throat. Typical…
