This was a double-blind, randomized clinical trial comparing three different solutions for the treatment of adults with epigastric pain or dyspepsia presenting to the emergency department (ED). It was conducted in the Royal Melbourne Hospital, a tertiary, adult-only, inner-city center in Melbourne with 75,000 annual ED visits. Data were collected over three months, from June to August 2019, between 0800 and 2300, seven days a week.
