Endoscopy is usually a very safe procedure. Nevertheless, failure to pre-clean, test, clean, and disinfect or sterilize and handle endoscopes properly could lead to severe endoscopic complications.
Hence, endoscopy technicians must be well trained, motivated and guided to ensure that each endoscope is properly cleaned, disinfected, sterilized, and functional – even as endoscopy remains under review.
However, with limitless models of endoscopes comes a limitless tide of process and equipment challenges that cannot be ignored in healthcare systems. This means that, when endoscopy comes to fore, patient safety and regulatory compliance must hold. Endoscope Matrix ensures that each scope is properly pre-cleaned, leak tested, cleaned, disinfected, and or sterilized as specified by its manufacturer’s instructions and beyond.
In addition to keeping and analyzing electronic data to support swift decision making on each processed and used endoscope, this smart system is also equipped with automatic endoscope and disinfectant monitoring capabilities to monitor and alert technicians and end-users of expired scopes and the potential risk to patients.
