Manual cleaning of endoscopes: Looking ahead to the next gold standard

WFHSS 2023 | Silver Hall | 08:15-09:00

Flexible endoscopes have been associated with the greatest number of patient infections when compared to other reusable medical devices. The body of evidence shows that patient ready endoscopes can remain contaminated despite high level disinfection or sterilization, warranting review of upstream processes.

Ineffective manual cleaning of the inner channels is one of the major root causes of biofilm formation and failed disinfection in flexible endoscopes.

This session will review the evidence associated with manual cleaning challenges, and review next generation technology for addressing these issues to support patient and staff safety.

We will also have a Nanosonics booth, where our team of experts will be on hand to showcase our total solution for ultrasound probe reprocessing.

Going beyond the high-level disinfection (HLD) step, Nanosonics offers a complete reprocessing solution, with a series of consumable and accessory product solutions to allow users to clean, prepare, disinfect, store, and trace the reprocessing process.
