The future of Endoscopy

Today I have seen and used the future. In the form of a flexible rhinolaryngoscope (nose/throat endoscope). Here it is pictured wrapped up with its screen behind. The wrapped bit is the scope and it is recycled after use on one patient only. So it is never used on another patient and comes out of the wrapper sterile. So almost no chance of nosocomial (hospital acquired) infection. Cost £130. Cost of sterilising a digital HD rhinolaryngoscope £7. View: Bearable as against brilliant with the HD scope.

The future: Is much more expensive, not as good but probably a fraction safer.
