Treading the sometimes fine line between unwanted respiratory depression and patient hyperresponsiveness, although readily achievable in the vast majority of cases, is only perfected with experience and by maintaining good communication with endoscopists
In a multivariate logistic regression analysis, having a female PCP and being currently employed were independent predictors of preferring a female endoscopist
If this is not available, the endoscopist
can use a Slide-On sheath (Vision Sciences; Natick, Mass.
These data were used to generate a procedural logbook for each endoscopist
and, for competency, were based on the published guidelines  of the American Society of Gastroenterology (ASGE), specifically noting the following quality markers: (i) number of procedures per individual endoscopist
; (ii) quality of the bowel preparation; (iii) number of times the caecum was intubated; (iv) number of adenomas detected at each procedure; (v) complications; and (vi) number of incomplete procedures.
15) This is the major reason why endoscopists
in North America and Europe do not use this criterion for the mucosal EGJ in their practice.
One district hospital has no equipment but has 3 trained endoscopists
Outpatients (aged 20-80 years) from a US Air Force family practice residency were referred to a family practice endoscopist
for further evaluation of dyspepsia, heartburn, and epigastric pain.
procedure was performed in Japan in 2009 by a Japanese thoracic surgeon and endoscopist
Her focus will initially be on the continued development of a knowledge, skills and competency framework for endoscopy nurses, which may include the development of a nurse endoscopist
Every so often, a patient's endoscopist
may give a diagnosis of Barrett mucosa, although the biopsy specimen has the presence of only dysplastic mucosa with no Barrett mucosa.
The success of this procedure depends on the effectiveness of bowel preparation and the subsequent ability of the endoscopist
to visualize the entire sigmoidal mucosa.
who is in her third year of training as an endoscopist
Colonoscopy overuse was strongly associated with these early follow-up recommendations by endoscopists
; patients were up to 13 times more likely to undergo an early colonoscopy when their endoscopist
recommended such follow up.
6) When the large bowel is not visualised well and the endoscopist
cannot intubate the ceacum or terminal ileum, the colonoscopy is deemed incomplete.
And transferring the responsibility for managing sedation from the endoscopist
to the anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist may reduce the endoscopist
's medicolegal liability.
