Carbon dioxide has been proven to minimize patient discomfort associated with bloating and cramping from room air.1 The MEDIVATORS® ENDO STRATUS® CO2 Insufflator allows clinicians to provide optimal procedure comfort for the patient.
Deliver irrigation for GI endoscope procedures with a warm water option by utilizing the EndoStratus™ Irrigation Pump. Combine the pump with any GI endoscope and irrigate through the auxilary water jet or biopsy channel to improve procedural visibility.
