The application of endoscopes in the medical field is becoming increasingly widespread, and many departments such as endoscopy, surgery, otolaryngology, etc. are using soft endoscopes for examination and surgery. Therefore, the maintenance and upkeep of corresponding soft endoscopes are becoming increasingly important. Below, the maintenance personnel of the endoscope equipment will talk about the phenomenon of nozzle failure in the endoscope equipment and the solutions.
The nozzle is a channel connecting water and gas pipelines, with a small volume and a corner. The nozzle is used frequently and has a relatively high failure rate.
(1) Fault symptoms. Endoscopy has no water vapor output, endoscopic water or air delivery is not smooth, and water delivery is in the form of water droplets.
(2) Fault analysis. The majority of nozzle failures are caused by the blockage of the nozzle caused by the drying of blood clots, tissues, and other suction objects after endoscopic cleaning. Another situation is that improper external forces cause severe deformation of the nozzle, resulting in poor water and air delivery.
(3) Fault resolution. When discovering blockage in air and water, the first step is to repeatedly press the air and water supply button. If handled in a timely manner, foreign objects inside can usually be flushed out; If flushing cannot solve the problem, a fine steel wire can be gently inserted into the nozzle to remove foreign objects, and then water can be repeatedly injected into the air supply and water supply ports until they are unobstructed;
For deeply blocked gas and water supply pipelines, the enzyme washing solution used to clean the endoscope can be injected into the gas and water supply pipelines. After soaking for a few minutes, a syringe can be used to repeatedly pressurize and inject gas and water until it is unobstructed;
If none of the above methods can solve the blockage problem, it indicates that the air and water supply pipelines are severely blocked. You can use a clock screwdriver to remove the nozzle, clean it with steel wire, and then install it back. Seal the adhesive and let it dry.
That's all for the explanation of the phenomenon of nozzle failure in endoscopic equipment and the related matters to be solved. We hope to provide you with good help. For more information, please come to our website consulting service
