Definition : Insufflators designed to maintain a regulated high pressure in a body tract or cavity by blowing a vapor or gas through an endoscope. These devices are typically an electronic unit with a high-flow gas (e.g., carbon dioxide) delivery unit, manometers for an accurate pressure measurement of flow rate and volume, pressure sensors and transducers, an electronic display, controls, and alarms. Endoscopic insufflators are intended to produce and maintain a gas-filled tract during a wide variety of endoscopic diagnostic and/or therapeutic procedures.
