Medical therapeutic endoscopy is widely used in modern medical surgery, which plays an important role in physical examination and minimally invasive surgery, saving a lot of medical time. Important medical equipment need special cleaning and maintenance, medical endoscope is no exception, so how to maintain it?
How to clean and maintain the medical endoscope after operation? First prepare the corresponding cleaning equipment and materials, instrument cleaning fluid, enzyme dissolving fluid, rust removing fluid and lubricating fluid. Cleaning equipment includes: flowing water cleaning and disinfection tank (three tanks: cleaning tank, enzyme cleaning tank, rust removal tank), high pressure water gun, drying equipment, timer, ventilation facilities, various brushes, gauze, cotton sticks, etc.
医用内窥镜如何清洗？首先是残留物的冲刷水洗：内镜及器械手术完毕后立即卸开可卸部分，清洗槽内用流动水彻 底清洗，除去血液、黏液等残留物质并擦干；曲卡及各类手术钳、剪类器械、关节脱卸用软毛刷子刷洗，高压水枪冲洗各腔道、导管、管腔等。其次使用消毒酶洗：将擦干后的内镜及器械置于1∶270全 效酶洗液槽中浸泡、浸泡时间为30 min或用超声清洗机振动清洗5 min~10 min。再来冲洗：经全 效酶洗液浸泡后的内镜及器械放冲洗槽中用流动水彻底清洗，有管腔器械在清洗过程中应用高压水枪喷射冲洗，以去除管道内的全 效酶洗液及松脱的污物。
How to clean medical endoscope? The first is the washing and washing of residues: after the operation of endoscopy and instruments, the detachable parts are removed immediately, and the cleaning tank is thoroughly cleaned with flowing water to remove the residual substances such as blood and mucus and wipe them dry; the quka and all kinds of surgical forceps, scissors and joint detachments are brushed with a soft brush, and the high-pressure water gun is used to wash the cavities, catheters and lumens. Secondly, use the disinfectant enzyme to wash: soak the dried endoscopes and instruments in the 1:270 total effect enzyme bath for 30 min or use the ultrasonic cleaning machine to clean them for 5-10 min. Then rinse: the endoscope and instruments soaked in the total effect enzyme lotion are thoroughly washed with flowing water in the rinse tank, and the instruments with lumen are sprayed with high-pressure water gun during the cleaning process to remove the total effect enzyme lotion and loose dirt in the pipeline.
医用内窥镜还需要做一些护理，比如防锈去锈，器械经上述处理后，放入配好的1∶7去锈液内浸泡，浸泡时间为10 min，浸泡完后用清水冲洗。以及润滑维护，冲洗后的器械放入1∶15润滑液内浸泡，浸泡2 min~3 min后捞起晾干或燥干即可。
Medical endoscopes also need to do some care, such as rust prevention and derusting. After the above treatment, the instrument is soaked in the 1:7 derusting solution for 10 min, and then washed with water. As well as lubrication maintenance, the washed instruments are soaked in 1:15 lubricating liquid, soaked for 2-3 min, then picked up and dried.
