MATACHANA PARTICIPATION IN THE X AEEED CONGRESS
The city of Zaragoza hosted the X Congress of the “Asociación Española de Enfermeras de Endoscopia Digestiva” (Spanish Association of Digestive Endoscopy Nurses), which took place on 16th and 17th November. With almost 500 attendees, this event is one of the largest meetings of gastroenterological endoscopy professionals held in our country.
MATACHANA, as in previous years, was present with a stand where we showed an ISA automatic reprocessor and a TRANSCOPE transport trolley, with their corresponding trays and dirty - clean identification systems. Both devices aroused great interest and were the source of numerous questions.
At the stand, thanks to Virtual Reality glasses, many of the visitors were able to visualize several projects of endoscopy units in 3D immersion. The designs are based on the principles that ESGENA has set as optimal for a current reprocessing unit.
Both on Friday and Saturday, MATACHANA organized an interesting workshop entitled "High level of disinfection or sterilization of endoscopes? Standards and advances in the industry", which was conducted by the head of the MIEC section, Elena Lorenzo. During the 2 days, about 80 people were able to participate in this seminar.
We congratulate the organization for the success of the public and the level of scientific presentations, which show the importance of the staff working in these departments as a quality defender of all these processes and the safety of their patients.
