GERD is a condition wherein stomach acid rises and enters the oesophagus, often resulting in either manageable symptoms or long-term complications if left untreated. Epidemiological studies in Asia have shown an increasing prevalence of symptom-based GERD year after year. This module aims to educate healthcare providers on the use of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) as an effective treatment in suppressing gastric acid secretion in patients with GERD. Compared to other methods of treatment, PPIs exhibit faster onset of action with tolerable safety profiles.
