Increasing prevalence of gastrointestinal, liver, and pancreatic diseases continues to increase global demand for duodenoscopes.  Corresponding updates to duodenoscope technologies also increase along with management of multidrug-resistant nosocomial risks associated with its use, addressing in part, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommendation for a gradual transition to duodenoscopes with disposable components.  During this webinar, we will highlight trends in duodenoscopes and device technologies, including disposable devices, detachable end caps and other novelties that may represent part of the solution forward along with potential challenges.

Optimal Viewing Experience on GI Leap
Although all browsers continually roll out new versions and updates, we currently recommend using Chrome for the best functionality when accessing GI Leap. Please note that Internet Explorer is not a supported browser. Follow these 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.
