Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) has become the first care centre in California to deploy endoscopy systems provider EvoEndo’s single-use endoscopy system to undertake a diagnostic unsedated transnasal endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract.

CHLA is the largest care provider for children in Los Angeles County, US. 

With the use of the EvoEndo Model LE Gastroscope, children aged five and above may have an option to undergo a comprehensive transnasal esophagogastroduodenoscopy examination with biopsies and without the requirement for sedation or anaesthesia.

Furthermore, this device pairs its scope with virtual reality technology that helps in distracting patients, thereby allowing an unsedated option.

Repeated use of sedatives or anaesthetics on children can impact their brain’s ability to learn and remember things and cause behavioural issues.

Designed for patients over the age of five, the EvoEndo Model LE Gastroscope helps in the observation, diagnosis and endoscopic treatment of the stomach, oesophagus and duodenal bulb.
