US Endoscopy, a leader in endoscopy device design and manufacturing, announces the release of the Torrent™ irrigation pump. The new Torrent™ irrigation pump completes the existing line of Torrent® irrigation solutions (including the 24-hour Torrent® irrigation tubing and single-patient use scope connectors) and is designed for endoscopic irrigation in conjunction with an endoscope water jet and working channels.
Irrigation is recognized as an important part of a gastrointestinal procedure to clear any debris (i.e. blood, stool, etc.) from the mucosal wall. The durable, Torrent™ irrigation pump is designed to provide physicians with a hands-free option for irrigation during gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures allowing for a complete examination. The compact irrigation pump has also been optimized to provide consistent flow rates when used in conjunction with the 24-hour Torrent® irrigation tubing and single patient use Torrent® scope connectors.
“Our Customers are looking for a total solution to support their intraprocedural irrigation needs,” says Tony Siracusa, Vice President and General Manager of US Endoscopy. “The addition of the Torrent™ irrigation pump to our consumable solutions was the next natural step in allowing US Endoscopy to become a dependable, sole source provider for our Customers.”
