Air/Water Cleaning Adapter
The Porpoise™ Air/Water Cleaning Adapter is designed to be used in the pre-clean process as laid out by the applicable Olympus reprocessing manuals5,6 for flexible endoscopes, which should be followed according to societal guidelines1,3,4.
- A single-use alternative to reusable cleaning adapters designed to address issues related to potential contamination during reprocessing
- Designed to flush the air and water channels with air and water during the bedside pre-cleaning process, after endoscopic procedures
- Compatible with the following gastrointestinal endoscopes: Olympus EVIS EXERA (160), EVIS EXERA II (180) & EVIS EXERA III (190)
How it Works
The Porpoise™ Air/Water Cleaning Adapter provides important patient safety and operational efficiency benefits.
- A cleaning adapter facilitates a critical step of the Olympus pre-cleaning process: flushing the endoscope channels and nozzle to aid in preventing buildup of potentially infectious bioburden and foreign debris.1-7
- The use of single-use cleaning adapters ensures a clean and functioning air/water cleaning adapter is available for endoscopes post-procedure, guarding against the contamination risk associated with incomplete bedside reprocessing steps or wear and tear on reusable cleaning adapters.5-9
- The Porpoise™ Air/Water Cleaning Adapter is designed to meet the pre-cleaning guideline requirements for a cleaning adapter in the applicable Olympus reprocessing manuals.1-6
- The use of a single-use air/water cleaning adapter eliminates:
- The labor burden and costs associated with reprocessing, tracing and maintaining reusable cleaning adapters potentially increasing operational efficiency.
- The risk of misplacing, discarding, and having to frequently replace a reusable cleaning adapter, potentially contributing to economic savings.5-6
In addition, working with Boston Scientific brings benefits of standardization including inventory readiness and educational support.
