Designed to fit on the distal end of your endoscope to form a protective "shield" (or hood) around your biopsy sample or foreign body retrieval while retracting the endoscope from the patient. Will fit on most gastroscopes and colonoscopes - a thick rubber band supplied aids in fitting on smaller endoscopes or when larger diameter endoscopes are used since they require the use of a lubricant to install without damaging the distal tip. Hoods come individually packed in a box of ten (10) hoods with instructions for use.
Devices are made of natural rubber latex. Those that are allergic to latex should not handle or ingest these hoods and they should not be used in patients that are allergic to latex.
