Whether its cystoscopes Houston practices that need to be repaired or instruments for endoscopy, Houston looks to our skilled professionals for expert work.
One of the most common repair issues with endoscopy Houston needs to be addressed is for leaks. To properly test for endoscope leaks, technicians need to look both before and after repairs to confirm the instrument works properly.
A complete leak test involves the scope being pressurized. Leaks are best identified when the scope is submerged in water. Our technicians carefully manipulate each scope to remove all the trapped air then wait to see if any bubbles emerge, indicating a leak.
Whether air bubble streams are small or large, their mere presence indicates there’s an issue.
By sending out for repairs or testing any suspect endoscopes or cystoscopes Houston practices ensure patient safety and accurate performance. Any signs of leakage should prompt the removal of the scope from practice and have it sent to our repair facilities.
Here are some tips that Houston, TX medical professionals can follow to inspect their scopes for signs of wear or damage. In any case, if damage is suspected, it’s best to send it to a qualified repair facility for inspection and correction.
- Examine the light guide connector for cracks or fracturing.
- Inspect protruding parts for distortions or components that are missing or bent out of place.
- The light post plugs into the unit processor, allowing both light and air to flow during a procedure. Check to make sure it’s not bent.
- The light post lens can become cracked, leading to leaks or limitations to the amount of light provided during procedures.
- The insertion tube and universal cord can be damaged if they are bent too far or kinked. A major kink can lead to a hole in the cord or channel that prompts fluid invasion. Bite damage can also cause damage to the insertion tube when a scope is used down a patient’s throat.
- Control buttons on the control handle can tear or be cut or torn. If the buttons are missing or not working properly, fluid invasion is possible.
- Angulation knobs should work to manufacturer specifications with an accurate response on the distal tip. Freeze knobs should also be in the unlocked position before starting a procedure because if angulation is attempted when locks are on, the angulation cables can be damaged.
- The distal tip needs to be checked for cuts, scrapes, or tears. Even a slight hole can cause damage to the rubber itself and fluid invasion.
