There are many kinds of rigid endoscopes, and the most commonly used ones are laparoscope, thoracoscopy, angioscope, arthroscopy, discoscope, laryngoscope, urology endoscopy, hysteroscopy and brain endoscopy. Because their optical imaging system, mechanical system and light source system are basically similar, the use and maintenance of various hard endoscopes are basically the same. Next, I will share the maintenance methods of the abdominal endoscope with you.
(1) The instruments should be handled with care, without conflict, collision and multiple instruments in one hand. Keep the sensitive tip of the coupling well closed, sharp and sharp.
(2) Pay attention to the protection of the mirror.、
(3) When the conductor is stored after cleaning, it shall not be disassembled and overlapped, and the turning curvature shall be greater than 90 degrees, so as to prevent the optical fiber from being damaged, affect the application effect and shorten the service life.
(4) For all kinds of pliers, always check and move the joints, pay attention to the closing condition of the clamp end, and apply special lubricant to the joints.
(5) Sharp instruments shall be protected with rubber protective cover.
(6) If the sealing ring on the card, converter and rotary cutter is aged or cracked, it shall be replaced in time to avoid air leakage during operation and affect the pneumoperitoneum effect.
(7) The valve on the rinser shall be regularly disassembled for cleaning and oiling to keep the sensitivity of the valve.
(8) During the use, cleaning and maintenance of all instruments, the joints shall not be forced, the tips shall not touch hard objects, and the small parts of instruments shall not be lost.
(9) Before leaving the light source and camera, make sure that the host power supply is closed before unplugging.
(10) It is not advisable to restart the mirror system within 15 minutes after shutdown.
(11) Low temperature or plasma sterilization is preferred for endoscope sterilization. If high-pressure sterilization is used, the mirror must be allowed to cool naturally to prevent cooling with cold water, otherwise the lens will crack. At present, glutaraldehyde immersion sterilization is not initiated, because the liquid at the interface of the mirror after immersion is not easy to clean, and foggy steam will occur during the use process, which will affect the clarity of the mirror, Try not to often change the sterilization method of the mirror, so the sealing of the mirror has advantages.
(12) The mirror and the surgical instrument shall be cleaned separately. After the mirror is cleaned in one direction with a wet absorbent cotton ball, it shall be wiped dry with a wiping paper. The mirror body can be wiped clean with a wet soft cloth. It is forbidden to clean the mirror with ultrasonic wave. It is not necessary to clean the mirror with normal saline as far as possible, otherwise, rust will simply occur.
