The types of endoscope failures are roughly divided into:
① Natural aging or artificial failure;
② Mechanical or electronic failure;
③ Static or dynamic fault;
④ Faults caused by the equipment itself or the surrounding environment;
⑤ There are also faults with multiple forms and overlapping faults that occur simultaneously.
Factors causing endoscope failure
Endoscopic maintenance companies believe that there are three main factors that may be summarized:
① The operating habits of medical personnel, the habits of cleaning and disinfecting personnel, and the degree of cooperation of patients;
② Characteristics of the equipment itself, cleaning and disinfection, coordination with diagnosis and treatment, and other related equipment;
③ The use environment, storage environment, and important management system environment.
Method of fault diagnosis
The methods of fault diagnosis include:
① Exclusion method: The basic method for routine use, but the working principle must be well understood;
② Follow up discovery method: only discover faults caused by some human factors during use;
③ Spot check and detection method: for undetected faults, identify potential faults to avoid fault expansion and extension;
④ Fault inference method: aiming at finding a problem and how the fault was generated;
⑤ Experience judgment method: Summarize and analyze based on years of work experience.
