The main types of rigid endoscopes are laparoscopy, cystoscope, ureteroscope, percutaneous nephroscope, hysteroscope, arthroscopy, Endoscopy Camera For ENT, brain endoscope, and mammoscope. Hard endoscopes have the following characteristics: expensive, high requirements for cleaning and maintenance; complex structure, precise structure, difficult to clean; a large number of lumens, joints, and tooth patterns, difficult to clean; equipped with fragile light sources The system is easy to damage and has high requirements on operators.

Therefore, we should be very careful when cleaning these instruments:

1. For valuable and easily damaged optical lenses, they must be handled skillfully, and they must be handled separately;

Be careful not to lose the accessories of the optical tube;

Can not use ultrasonic cleaning, please wipe with a cotton cloth dipped in 75% ethanol solution;

Cannot strike the tube

Do not stagger them with other equipment.

2.Fiber cleaning, disinfection and storage

(1) Cleaning method: Use gauze containing sterile water and detergent to remove blood, mucous membranes and tissue blocks from the optical fiber.

(2) Remember the optical fiber: do not fold, do not press, do not knot, stay away from sharp tools. Because the broken optical fiber affects the illuminance of light, the optical fiber disk must be well placed in a soft container.

(3) Ultrasonic cleaning is prohibited

3. Correct holding of endoscope

For precision instruments with complex structures, disassembly and cleaning must be done during cleaning, and the detachable units that need to be disassembled to parts are minimized. The disassembled parts should be stored carefully to prevent loss.

4. Do not plug or unplug the electronic part of the camera with power on.

(1) The power must be turned off before inserting or removing the electronic part of the camera. Prevent short circuit and burnout of camera after damage of electronic plug-in

(2) Under normal circumstances, do not remove the electronic part to prevent loosening.

(3) The power should be turned off in the event of a sudden power failure, and the power should be turned on after the voltage stabilizes.

5. It is strictly forbidden to wet the electronic part of the camera.

If the electronic part of the camera encounters water vapor, small water spots.

(1) should be immediately cleaned with dry gauze or cotton swabs;

(2) Do not bend, fold or break the plug-in of the electronic part;

(3) Blow dry with gas.

6. Use and maintenance of mirrors

Before disinfection, the mirror should be lightly inspected for cracks and whether the object is clear. When using it, be sure to handle it gently. After the operation is completed, you should separate the mirror and camera lens with the surgeon. When handing over after surgery, check the integrity of the mirror with the nurses in the brushroom and register. Use a wet gauze to scrub the lens carefully during brushing, and dry with a dry gauze after enzyme washing.

The above is the method of cleaning and maintenance of the endoscope introduced by the Endoscope Camera supplier. I hope it can help everyone.
