Core Tip It is essential to reduce discomfort in esophagogastroduodenoscopy. The present study clearly identified the factors associated with discomfort in esophagogastroduodenoscopy using a large-size cross-sectional study. Young age, female sex, and current smoking were identified as the contributive factors. Smoking status was a newly identified predictor of this study. Furthermore, heavy alcohol consumption was noted to diminish the effect of the sedative(s). These factors are useful because they can be easily obtained, and we can take remedial measures for reducing discomfort.
