Objectives
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Describe Wireless Capsule Endoscopy. Describe and evaluate the hardware and software utilized with this trend. Describe and evaluate the information system used with this trend. Assess the role and functions of the nurse informaticist when working with this trend. Examine related legal/ethical issues. Discuss the Advantages/Disadvantages from nursing perspective.

Wireless Capsule Endoscopy

(Wikipedia, 2009)

Wireless Capsule Endoscopy


Traditional endoscopys reach from the mouth duodenum. Traditional colonoscopys only view the colon. Specialized for small bowel imaging. Important tool in detecting Crohns disease, gastric ulcers, and colon cancer.
(Marks, 2008)

Wireless Capsule Endoscopy


Approved by the US FDA in 2001. Pill sized camera that is swallowed and transmits imaging. Used to diagnose diseases and disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. Less invasive alternative to traditional endoscope.
(Marks, 2008)

Software Usability Evaluation


Axiom 1

Axiom 2 Axiom 3

Information System
Endoscopic Electronic Medical Record Systems
Interfaces with hospital electronic medical records. Incorporates imaging, data management, communication, and inventory. Ex. Endoworks 7.3, CORI, gCare, and Provation.
(ASGE, 2008)

Endoscopic Electronic Medical Record Systems


Administrative and Clinical Information System Usage by multiple health care professionals. Workstation Mainframe ICD-9
(ASGE, 2008)

Advantages
Painless & noninvasive Eliminates G.I. bleed risk Procedure requires no sedation 3x length examined compared to Colonoscopy More accurate than Colonoscopy

(Johnson, 2008)

Disadvantages
Capsule can be hard to swallow Unable to perform biopsy Possible poor visualization Inability for precise location Capsule retention

(Johnson, 2008)

Ethical & Legal Issues


Patient privacy Price

Informatics Competencies
Generalized training for software use Yearly competency Continuing education

Functions & Responsibilities


Patient privacy Patient education User training Updates

Summary
Non traditional, less invasive than colonoscopy Greater imaging with less patient restrictions Less side effects Results easily accessible via e-chart Better data management and trending
