The supporting laryngoscope is composed of a laryngoscope and a support frame, which is composed of a support seat, a support rod, an adjuster, and a rotating handle; The laryngoscope is composed of a laryngoscope tube, a handle, and a lamp groove. The laryngoscope is fixed on a support frame and inserted into the patient's throat. Used for examination and treatment of laryngeal lesions. Today, the endoscope equipment maintenance personnel will share with you the inspection and maintenance of the supporting laryngoscope, let's learn together!
1. Cleanliness inspection: Check the surface, mirror surface, eyepiece end, objective end, and guide beam interface of the lens to ensure they meet the cleaning quality standards.
2. Functional inspection
a) Observe whether the mirror body is intact and undamaged;
b) Check if there are no cracks on the mirror surface;
c) Whether there is damage to the interface of the guiding beam and the optical fiber;
d) Check the imaging quality of the lens: Align the lens with the reference object and slowly rotate 360 ° for visual inspection. The image should be clear, free from deformation, and black spots;
e) Check if the shaft rod is dented or scratched, and if the shaft rod is straight.
3. Guide beam inspection
a) Check the cleanliness of the guide beam surface, which should meet the cleaning quality standards.
b) Check if the surface and interface of the guide beam are damaged and if the function is intact.
5. Cleanliness inspection: Check that the surface, joints, teeth, and lumens of the hard endoscope and its accessories are smooth and clean, free of residual substances such as blood stains, scale, and rust, and meet the cleaning quality standards.
Lubrication and maintenance: Before the functional inspection, add lubricant to the movable contacts, couplings, threads, valves, etc. of the cavity mirror instrument, and use spray or immersion method to lubricate the instrument. The configuration and usage of lubricants should follow the product manual.
6. Functional inspection
a) The equipment parts should be complete and structurally intact, and the shaft joints should be flexible and not loose; Close the clamp end completely;
b) The casing and sealing ring are intact without deformation, and the closed hole cap is not aging; Moderate spring tension and flexible locking; Scissors and puncture tools should be sharp and without curling edges; The puncture device lumen is unobstructed;
c) Electrical equipment with power supply should undergo insulation performance inspection. Visual inspection of the insulation layer for damage can be used first, and then special detectors can be used for safety checks such as insulation performance.
Assembly of supporting laryngoscope: The operator checks the type, specification, and quantity of the rigid endoscope and its accessories according to the technical specifications for assembly.
a) The outer sleeve, inner core, and handle of the assembled endoscopic instrument should be in a basically straight (non deflection) position when inserting or exiting the operating channel of the endoscopic puncture device;
b) Assemble the sleeve, multifunctional valve, and puncture core of the puncture device.
The operator reassembles and reassembles the disassembled hard endoscope and accessories.
a) Optical eyepieces and other instruments should be placed in a dedicated instrument box for separate packaging;
b) The guiding beam and camera connecting wire should be coiled in a large arc, with a diameter greater than 10cm and no sharp angles.
Place the instruments in the order of use of the rigid endoscope and its accessories.
a) Sharp instruments such as vertebrae, sheaths, needles, scissors, and puncture devices should use fixed frames, protective pads, or protective caps;
b) All cavities and valves should be opened to ensure the penetration of the sterilization medium.
Packaging of supporting laryngoscope: The rigid endoscope that needs to be packaged for sterilization shall be packaged according to WS310.2 requirements. The cleaned supporting laryngoscope or accessories should be prevented from being contaminated again during drying, inspection and maintenance, assembly, packaging, and other processes.
