We provide professional support in Stomach Endoscopy.
The patient fasts for 8-12 hours, there is no need for
mucilage. If general anesthesia is planned, necessary examinations are
performed. The patient is put on an apron, placed on a stretcher, and the local
anesthetic agent used by dentists is squeezed into the mouth. (General
anesthesia is applied to patients who cannot tolerate this procedure.) This
spray prevents nausea and swallowing. If general anesthesia or sedation is
planned to be applied to the patient. The patient is hungry for 6 additional
hours, if the patient will be fully conscious, mild sedatives can be given. The
patient is tilted to the left side and the extremities are fixed and the head
is turned 90 degrees to the left. A mouthpiece is attached to the oral cavity
to protect the teeth and the endoscope. After two to three minutes, the
endoscope is lowered from the mouth to the stomach. . Depending on the
type of the disease, retching can be seen, this is natural.

How to Prepare for Colonoscopy?
1- In order for colonoscopy to be performed properly, all of the
intestines must be emptied. For this reason, preliminary preparation must
be done properly. Otherwise, preparation may have to be repeated or
correct results may not be obtained.
2-Aspirin, coumadin etc. People who use blood thinners should report this
to their doctor. If these medicines must be used, your doctor should take
precautions and use your medicines with alternative ways.
3- 1 day before the colonoscopic examination, pulp foods should be cut and
plenty of watery food should be consumed. Each center uses different drug
options for the colonoscopy preparation process. The method of use varies
according to the appointment time. Each center informs the patient what
kind of preparation should be applied before the procedure. Intestinal
emptying drugs and enemas are generally used for this procedure.
An appointment is made after the patient applies to our
clinic. At the relevant day and at the endoscopy unit, the blood pressure
of our patient is measured first, the patient is put on shorts that will allow
the procedure to be performed, the vascular access is opened, the patient is
put in bed for the procedure, the patient’s pulse and oxygen saturation are
monitored with the relevant devices during the procedure. In colonoscopy,
a relaxing needle is used for sedation, and if the patient wants to sleep
completely, a different medication is given by the anesthesiologist instead of
a relaxing needle.
After the patient sleeps, the patient’s anus, rectum, sigmoid colon, descending
colon, splenic flexure, transfer colon, hepatitis flexura, cecum, terminal
ileum are examined with a colonoscope. If necessary, a biopsy is taken for
pathology. If there is a polyp, it is removed. After the procedure,
while the patient is taken to the relevant room for rest, a video recording and
a colonoscopy report are prepared. If necessary, a prescription is
written. If a biopsy is taken, the treatment is arranged according to the
result after the biopsy.
