Each channel of the catheter is connected to a separate pressure transducer. Any interference with the flow of water from any of the various channels by lumen occluding contractions raises the pressure in the corresponding channel. Pressure transducers continuously monitor pressures in the channels. Pressure information is transmitted to a computer, where it is digitized, analyzed, and displayed on a video monitor
