Transnasal endoscopy represents an effective alternative technique for diagnostic gastroscopy using ultra-thin gastroscopes, which can improve procedural and hospital efficiency, whilst enhancing the patient experience.

It can be performed by trained nurses, as a Nurse-led procedure, outside of the traditional endoscopy room – potentially requiring smaller teams and freeing up space for complex therapeutic and diagnostic procedures.

Transnasal gastroscopy with gastroscopes from Olympus can provide a safer and more tolerable procedure. Whilst a conventional oral gastroscopy may restrict tongue movement, intubating via the nasal cavity allows patients to talk to their endoscopist throughout their procedure – making the process potentially less stressful.

Additional major benefits for patients are that they often do not require sedation, minimising the overall risk of the procedure, reducing preparation time and shortening procedure time, which can help to improve recovery times, increase patient throughput and reduce costs.

By providing flexibility in where procedures can be performed and increasing hospital efficiency, transnasal endoscopy offers an attractive alternative to support the needs of both endoscopists and patients.
