US Endoscopy announces the release of the Torrent irrigation tubing, a two part system consisting of 24-hour irrigation tubing and a single-use endoscope connector.
The irrigation tubing is used in conjunction with an electric water pump and endoscope to provide irrigation during GI endoscopic procedures. The disposable Torrent tubing and single-use scope connector protect patients from potential cross-contamination.
With infection control concerns still growing in the GI market, many facilities are moving toward a disposable alternative, says Gulam Khan, US Endoscopy CEO, president, and co-chairman. The Torrent irrigation tubing helps support infection control efforts while saving time and costs associate with reprocessing reusable tubing.
