Résumé

L’article présente un résumé des recommandations de trois pays différents pour la prévention d’infections en endoscopic gastrointestinale. Certains points sujets à controverse sont discutés ainsi que l’importance de certaines mesures qui sont souvent mal comprises. Ces points d’intérêt component le rôle des bactéries opportunistes de l’environnement en endoscopic gastrointestinale, la necessité du nettoyage mécanique de l’équipement endoscopique, l’activité anti-virale des désinfectants chimiques et les machines de lavage automatique des endoscopes.

Infection control in gastrointestinal endoscopy

Summary

The paper summarises the recommendations from three different countries for infection control practices in gastrointestinal endoscopy. Some points of controversy are discussed and the importance of some measures which are often not understood is emphasised. These point of special interest include the role of opportunistic environmental bacteria in gastrointestinal endoscopy, the need for physical cleaning of endoscopic equipment, the antiviral activity of chemical disinfectants and the performance of automatic endoscope washing machines.

Key words

La prevención de la infección en endoscopia gastrointestinal

Resumen

Este trabajo resume las recomendaciones de tres paéses differentes para la prevención de infecciones en la endoscopia gastrointestinal. Unos puntos controvertidos son discutidos acentuando la importancia de unas medidas con frecuencia mal entendidas. Estos puntos de interés abarcan el rol de las bacterias oportunistas ambientales de la endoscopia gastrointestinal, la necesidad de limpieza mecánica del equipo endoscopico, la actividad anti-viral de los desinfectantes qulmicos y las lavadoras automáticas para endoscopios.
