Adverse Events in Luminal Endoscopy: Prevention and Management | February 2021
Release Date: March 2021
Viewing Time:
1 hour

Endoscopy has significantly evolved over the last two decades, with new techniques and therapeutic interventions. This has been extremely beneficial for our patients, allowing minimally invasive treatment of several conditions, which were only previously reserved for surgical intervention. Simultaneously, the risk and incidence of endoscopy complications has also increased.

Awareness of potential complication during endoscopy, prompt identification of peri and post procedure complications and their effective management represent a crucial prerequisite to minimize the risk of catastrophic chain of adverse events. Patient safety and awareness of potential complications must remain a pivotal requirement, when performing endoscopy.

Join Alberto Murino, MD, who will provide an overview of potential complications which may occur during luminal diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy and will provide ways to further improve the care of our patients. This presentation is part of ASGE’s monthly series of global education, which will feature global experts to foster live discussion all over the world.

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Because all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, it is not always practical to point to a particular browser as "better" than another. Because browsers are free, you can easily shift from one to another for various purposes. Whatever browser you are using, here are some tips for better streaming and viewing of ASGE videos:

  1. Close other applications and browser tabs. This decreases the load on memory so your computer or other device can focus on streaming.
  2. Use a 5 GHz frequency if your router supports it. The common 2.4 GHz frequency is used by household appliances, so is more crowded. Avoiding it is like getting into the carpool lane on a freeway: smoother sailing.
  3. Use Ethernet instead of Wi-Fi if possible but GI LEAP is built with Wi-Fi in mind. 
  4. Monitor your internet connection. If your ISP has promised you 5MBps and you are getting only 1MBps, it's time for a phone call to your internet provider to sort that out.
