Care of the endoscope
Always handle the insertion tube carefully; avoid sharp bends, tight coiling, or accidental striking of the tube against hard surfaces
The fingers should never manipulate the distal deflecting portion of the endoscope; the control knobs should be used to check the range of motion of the deflecting tip.
Excessive force on the control knobs should always be avoided (make sure deflecting locks are off).
Always use an oral speculum when passing the endoscope through the oral cavity of an anesthetized patient
Never force instruments or pass foreign objects through the accessory channel.
Pressure compensation valve: Remove red cap and placard from scope
