The Olympus OFP is a peristaltic flushing pump intended for use in medical facilities under the direction of a trained physician. The OFP has been designed to be used with Olympus EVIS EXERA gastrointestinal videoscopes having an auxiliary water inlet as part of an Olympus endoscopic imaging system to facilitate washing of gastric and colonic mucosa to remove blood, faeces and other organic matter, enabling improved visualisation, diagnosis and therapy during endoscopic procedures.
Do not use the equipment for any purpose other than its intended application.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The OFP has been designed to be used with Olympus EVIS EXERA series gastrointestinal videoscopes
having an auxiliary water inlet as part of an Olympus endoscopic imaging system to facilitate washing of gastric and colonic mucosa to remove blood, faeces and other organic matter, enabling improved visualisation, diagnosis and therapy during endoscopic procedures. Do not use for any purpose other than this intended use.
Ensure the OFP is switched off before installation or removal of the irrigation tube.
The operator must assess the condition of the patient and use clinical judgement to set the flow rate from the pump to a suitable level to avoid patient trauma. The flow control should always be set to MIN at the start of the procedure and be increased progressively to a level ‘commensurate with’ the clinical condition of the patient and degree of washing required.
Note that when the flow control is set to MAX, the flow rate through the washing channel of the endoscope will be in excess of that which can be delivered when using a 50ml syringe.
If there is NO fluid flow during use, stop the OFP immediately and identify and correct the cause, otherwise the patient may be insufflated with air or damage to the unit may occur.
The irrigation tube, filter and fluid container are supplied in a non- – sterile condition and MUST be autoclaved before use.
The OFP should not be positioned where the fluid container is directly exposed to heat emitted from adjacent equipment, otherwise fluid in the container may become hot after a period of time and scald the patient. Reprocess the MAJ- – 855 following each use according to the manufacturer’s instructions supplied with the product.
Check the “USE BY” date of the tubing as indicated on the packaging label. Do not use any tubes beyond the specified “USE BY” date.
Only sterilised water is to be used in conjunction with the OFP during operation. Use of irrigation fluid other than sterile water may cause an infection risk to the patient.
The unit contains a safety device which will sound an audible alarm in the event of the pump operating without the footswitch or remote control being activated. If the alarm is heard, switch the unit OFF immediately and contact Olympus for service/repair.
