Practice Manipulating the Endoscope

Before you start using the endoscope with patients it’s best to become familiar with the mechanics of the endoscope. Practice using the scope to navigate through an inanimate object, we use paper cups lined up in a row. You can practice with anything that requires both manipulation of the flexible tip and rotation of the body of the endoscope so that the tip may move in any plane. You should only begin scoping patients once you feel comfortable navigating with the scope.
