Lecture Summary:

Flexible endoscopy has revolutionised the investigation of disease both within the gastrointestinal tract and the respiratory system. This relatively non invasive tool allows a detailed examination of the mucosal surface and biopsy collection, without the need for surgical intervention.

Every practice has patients presenting with vomiting, diarrhoea, nasal discharge and symptoms of lower airway disease. Now that the cost of endoscopy has fallen practices can afford to invest in equipment to investigate these symptoms.

This course is designed for those wishing to learn more about the types of equipment available so they can select the most suitable endoscopes for their practice. In addition it will describe the basic protocols for carrying out endoscopy of the GIT and respiratory systems.

Topics include

• How to select the most suitable endoscope for your practice needs.
• What accessories are required.
• What cases would benefit from endoscopy
• How to collect biopsy samples and preserve them
• How to carry out an upper and lower GI endoscopy.
• How to use endoscopy to examine the nasal passages.
• How to carry out a bronchoscopy.
