The role of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography injection training sessions for the gastroenterology nurse and associate

The role of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography injection training sessions for the gastroenterology nurse and associate

Gastroenterology Nursing 12(2): 106-108

Pancreatitis is a recognized serious complication of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). The pressure with which contrast media are injected may be a risk factor for developing pancreatitis. We, therefore, designed a study to determine if there were differences in pressures generated by experienced and inexperienced gastroenterology nurses and how much training would be required to instruct individuals to inject to a specific pressure. With the use of manometrically guided practice sessions, it was determined that inexperienced operators initially inject with significantly high pressure but can learn to inject accurately to a specific pressure as rapidly as experienced operators. Injection training sessions may be beneficial in minimizing the potential risk factor of hydrostatic pressure induced endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography-associated pancreatitis.
