New Study: Reusable Bronchoscopes cost more than Sterile Single-use Bronchoscopes

Study urges hospitals to consider obtaining sterile single-use bronchoscopes for routine procedures to improve hospital economy and patient safety.

Bronchoscopes – one of the most commonly used instruments in hospitals – not only put patients at risk of infection if they are not cleaned properly but can come with a heavy price tag for institutions that reprocess them for use on other patients.

A new study shows that hospitals that disinfect and reuse bronchoscopes pay more per instrument than if they had purchased a sterile single-use bronchoscope. The extra cost is $150 per use on average across the hospitals in the study and up to $500 per use at the hospital with the highest reported expenses for reusable bronchoscopes.

The study also found that:

  • Reprocessing bronchoscopes was most often done by personnel who “lacked certification or adequate training.”
  • Reprocessing practices in the field “do not meet current standards and guidelines.”
  • “Substantial resources were spent re-reprocessing bronchoscopes that reached hang time limits.”

The study recommends that facilities obtain sterile single-use bronchoscopes for their routine procedures, for after hours and for emergency situations.

The study reports that “Site coordinators [at the hospitals in the study] identified suboptimal equipment and practices at all sites, and the study sparked assessments and quality improvements that will hopefully improve patient safety.”

Ambu’s new single-use scope receives CE mark

Ambu has received notice from BSI (British Standards Institution) that their latest single-use endoscope – Ambu® aScope™ 4 RhinoLaryngo Slim – is included in Ambu’s current CE certificate. This means that Ambu is ready to launch the new scope in Europe before end of Q2 2018/19. The US launch awaits FDA approval which is expected in Q3 2018/19.

The two scopes for nose and throat procedures
This is Ambu’s second out of two announced single-use rhinolaryngoscopes. The first was launched in Europe in October 2018. The two scopes are:

  • Ambu® aScope™ 4 RhinoLaryngo Intervention – for speciality procedures
  • Ambu® aScope™ 4 RhinoLaryngo Slim – for routine inspections

The Intervention scope is expected to be launched in the US at the same time as the Slim scope.

Single-use rhinolaryngoscopes
A rhinolaryngoscope is used by ear, nose and throat specialists to visualize the airway anatomy from the nasal cavity down to the vocal folds. The scope is used to check a wide variety of conditions and perform specialized procedures such as biopsies and foreign body removal.

There are multiple benefits associated with a single-use scope. It is immediately ready for the doctor who does not have to wait for a clean scope. A single-use scope does not need cleaning and repairs, and each patient is treated with a sterile device.
