The innovative new slim bronchoscope EB-710P by Fujifilm Holdings Corporation is equipped with an exceptionally compact CMOS Sensor. This technology means that the tip is a mere 4.1 mm in diameter with a field of view of 120˚. In this way endoscopists can penetrate the periphery of the lung much more easily than with a conventional system. It is compatible with the new generation Endoscope Processors ELUXEO™ and with its One-Step Connector, the bronchoscope can be connected to the light source in a single step. In addition, there is a rotation mechanism that enables 120˚ rotation which allows the user to return the endoscope safely to its original position. Finally, the new control portion is equipped with a wider grip, new suction valve, and four switches, which allows smooth handling.
Throughout the congress several speeches were made by physicians, and hands-on workshops were organized by our partners Fujifilm Holdings Corporation, Erbe Elektromedizin GmbH and Hunan Vathin. Participants had the opportunity with the help and guidance of world-renowned instructors to use the latest technology and practice difficult endoscopic techniques. In fact, at the workshop held by Hunan Vathin on Tuesday, September 6, on the topic of “Single use bronchoscopes, New possibilities & Tips and Tricks”, the speaker was Dr. Fotios Sampsonas from the University Pulmonology Clinic of the University of Patras together with Dr. Javier Flandes Aldeyturriaga.
