In the coming years, the numbers of gastrointestinal (GI) motility labs around the world are poised to increase exponentially. Why, because of increasing volume of cases, rising complexity of GI diagnosis and greater understanding of the pathophysiology of GI motility disorders. Consequently, GI motility labs will serve an important role in GI clinical practice, research and training. It is therefore essential to have an in-depth knowledge of the nuts and bolts of setting up and running a motility lab. This chapter describes what is needed with regards to the design of space, elements of a lab, equipment, procedural standards, billing and coding, staffing and training, and preparation of patients.
