Personal protective equipment during activity resumption in endoscopy units: waterproof gowns in the daily practice

512

Andres Sánchez Yagüe,

Adapting endoscopy units to the resumption of services remains challenging. Published recommendations for the resumption of endoscopy services are logical but, in some cases, may prove difficult to put into practice in the daily workflow of most centers. In relation to the SEED-AEG position statement document, we agree on the use of personal protective equipment during the procedures including footwear, body, hand, face, and hair protection. Since gloves are changed for all interventions, body protection would be the most problematic of all protection equipment as both the forearm and trunk areas can potentially come into contact with the endoscope, which in turn, is inserted into the patient.
