Endoscopic Tower Description
An endoscopy tower is a large unit comprised of a number of different pieces of equipment, or merely a standalone tower. The unit is often on wheels so you can bring it around from one room to another quickly and easily. One of these towers is generally capable of being outfitted with a camera, power source, controls, and a monitor. The goal is to make the procedures easier on the surgeons and the patients, and to provide them with the utmost quality of care.
Features of endoscopic towers
The first thing you have to think about when renting one of these towers is just what it is you need to have. Are you looking to rent or lease all of the equipment that goes into the tower, such as the endoscope, the monitors and the power source? If you already have those pieces of equipment, then you may only need to rent or lease the tower itself, and then you can add your own equipment to it.
Something else to consider when renting is portability. You may have a clinic that only has one of these towers, even though you have more than one room where you can perform endoscopies. If that’s the case, then you certainly want to choose a tower that is on wheels and that is easy to move from one room to another.
Also, if you already have other endoscopy equipment, make sure the tower that you choose, is capable of holding your equipment. Check the measurements of everything to be sure. You do not want to rent or lease a tower that’s the wrong size.
How endoscopic towers work
The tower can vary in height, but it will have a number of compartments and shelves where you will keep all of the other endoscopic gear you need for various procedures. The towers also have wheels on the bottom in most cases to make sure they are portable. The equipment that goes into the shelves is highly specialized, and it is important to keep in mind that not all towers come with all of the various pieces of equipment. Know what you are getting.
