Endoscopic Technique: Functions Air Insufflation and Irrigation ̈ Neutral position: no air insufflation, no water jet ̈ Air insufflation ̈ Irrigation (water jet) The light source is combined with a compressed air pump that can deliver either compressed air or pressurized water through the umbilical cord to the endoscope, as desired. This function is controlled by the air/water valve. This valve has three positions (Fig. 8): Fig. 8 Air insufflation and irrigation Air vent Air/ water nozzle Air Air/ water nozzle Air Water jet Air Air/water valve Air/water valve Air/water valve Water Water Water 1 a Air/water valve in the neutral position.

Nevertheless, relatively gross abnormalities of esophageal motility can be appreciated during endoscopy. The examiner should take time to observe esophageal peristalsis, particularly when investigating swallowing difficulties, obstruction-related symptoms, and noncardiac chest pain. ࡯ Physiology Spontaneous peristaltic activity is not present in the normal esophagus. Swallowing triggers an orderly sequence of muscular relaxation alternating with waves of peristaltic contraction. In the approximately 3-cm-long zone of the upper esophageal sphincter, swallowing initially causes the intraluminal pressure to fall from approximately 80 mmHg to zero, followed by a powerful contraction.

The vented air can be felt by holding a finger over the hole. When this valve is not activated, it automatically assumes a position that blocks the water channel while allowing air to escape through the vent hole b Air insufflation. Placing the finger lightly on the vent hole keeps the air from escaping and redirects it to the distal end of the endoscope. This does not involve activating the valve c Irrigation. Pressing the valve button down closes off the air channel and redirects air pressure into the water bottle, causing water to be pumped from the bottle into the endoscope.
