Endoscope repair and the maintenance of your technological fleet presents many clinical, technical and financial challenges...many factors such as new technology, patient demographics, reprocessing and handling techniques as well as repair quality have a direct impact on the readiness of your current endoscope fleet and overall cost of maintenance. The goal of this session is to review basic rigid and flexible endoscope anatomy, most common causes for endoscope failure with the relative repair costs and discuss the steps needed for the successful implementation of a preventive endoscope quality assurance program. Small actions can make a big difference both for the end user and your budget!
