Introduction to Starting Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy: Proper Insertion, Complete Observation, and Appropriate Photographing.

Park KS - Clin Endosc (2015)

Bottom Line: Mastering the basics of endoscopy is very important because when this process is imprecise or performed incorrectly, it can severely affect a patient's health or life.Although there are several guidelines and studies that consider these basics, there are still no standard recommendations for endoscopy in Korea.In this review, basic points, including proper endoscope insertion, precise observation without blind spots, and appropriate photographing, for upper gastrointestinal endoscopy will be discussed.

ABSTRACT
Diagnostic upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is the most basic of endoscopy procedures and is the technique that trainee doctors first learn. Mastering the basics of endoscopy is very important because when this process is imprecise or performed incorrectly, it can severely affect a patient's health or life. Although there are several guidelines and studies that consider these basics, there are still no standard recommendations for endoscopy in Korea. In this review, basic points, including proper endoscope insertion, precise observation without blind spots, and appropriate photographing, for upper gastrointestinal endoscopy will be discussed.

When the endoscope arrives at the left pyriform sinus (arrow) as seen on the left side of the screen, its tip is maneuvered so that it faces the center and the endoscope is carefully inserted.

Figure 2: When the endoscope arrives at the left pyriform sinus (arrow) as seen on the left side of the screen, its tip is maneuvered so that it faces the center and the endoscope is carefully inserted.

Mentions: When the endoscope arrives at the left pyriform sinus as seen on the left side of the screen, its tip is maneuvered so that it faces the center and the endoscope is carefully inserted (Fig. 2). At this time, the knob on its control body can be used, but otherwise, if the endoscope is turned slightly clockwise and the left arm is raised, it will naturally face the center. It is usually possible to insert the endoscope through the left pyriform sinus without difficulty, but if resistance is felt, insertion through the right pyriform sinus could be attempted. If the endoscope cannot be passed even after several attempts, a method in which the patient is asked to swallow and the endoscope is gently inserted when the upper esophageal sphincter relaxes could be attempted.
