In recent years, endoscope has become more and more widely used in our daily life, but many people are not very clear about the knowledge of endoscope. In fact, endoscope generally refers to medical instruments that enter the human body through various channels to observe the internal conditions of the human body. Under what circumstances are endoscope equipment vulnerable to damage? The endoscope equipment maintenance personnel will explain it to you.
Precautions in use: The rigid tube endoscope is not often damaged during surgery. Although it may contact and bump with human tissues such as muscles, mucous membranes, bones, etc., these bumps are slight and will not cause damage to the endoscope, because it is only for observation, not the force point of other instruments.
However, when using other instruments, especially forceps and scissors with large bite force, the front end of the lens tube should not extend into the bite area of the instrument to avoid accidental injury to the lens tube. When using this kind of instrument, sometimes doctors stretch the endoscope very close to the tissue in order to see clearly the tissue in the occlusal area. When the instrument occludes, the endoscope does not return, and the endoscope is injured by mistake. During operation, such accidents can be avoided if all the occlusal openings of the instruments are within the scope of observation of the endoscope.
Some surgical scopes are used in the sheath tube. When replacing other angle scopes or inserting and pulling out instruments, attention should be paid to the light action and not to use too much force. Especially in the process of inserting and pulling out the endoscope, when it encounters resistance and cannot be pulled out, carefully find out the reason, and pull it out together with the sheath if necessary, without using brute force.
When the endoscope is operated with laser vaporization, high-frequency electrosection, microwave and other photoelectric technologies, attention should be paid to the distance between the front end of the endoscope and the treatment point to ensure that the front end of the endoscope is not electrocuted or burned. When you feel that the planer is working abnormally or the illumination is suddenly reduced, it is possible that the endoscope has been damaged, and you should replace it in time to avoid causing greater losses.
For general important surgery, there should be a set of spare endoscope and key instruments, which can be easily replaced when problems are found; It is also easy to cause damage to the endoscope if the endoscope with improper angle or mismatched instruments are used to operate reluctantly.
