Abstract EN

Background.

No consensus exists regarding which procedures should be performed to disinfect endoscopes and working platforms after COVID-19 patients have undergone endoscopy.

Methods.

We analyzed the disinfection quality of endoscopes and working platforms after 11 COVID-19 patients had undergone endoscopy.

Conclusions.

For endoscopic preprocessing at the bedside, a key disinfection step is using a multienzyme stock solution.

The nucleic acid tests for endoscopists, washers, endoscopes, and working platforms were all negative.

Based on our experience with the 11 COVID-19 patients who had undergone endoscopy, we provide an endoscopic reprocessing method for the bedside endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19 patients for reference.
