On 24th February we were delighted to host our first webinar “Continuing ENT Diagnosis Throughout COVID-19 Safely”. The successful event was hosted in conjunction with MediWales and endoscope-i.

Throughout the day we were thrilled to welcome three speakers that included Gwyn Tudor (MediWales), Neil Mercer (Innovia UK), and Ajith George (endoscope-i).

Focusing on Nasendoscopies, the event highlighted how to continue this procedure safely throughout COVID-19, whilst protecting both the Clinician and patient with the SNAP, Endoscope Guide. With only 8% of Nasendoscopies currently being performed in the 1st lockdown[1], this award-winning innovation was designed with the aim of getting Clinicians back Endoscoping.

Our main speaker for the day, Ajith George (Consultant ENT Surgeon), discussed the benefits of using the SNAP device when Endoscoping as well as the products effectiveness and simplicity. Product demonstrations were performed with a variety of Endoscopes, including a final live demonstration to allow delegates to implement a SNAP onto a Face Mask along with Ajith.


Fantastic Delegate Response

We have received some brilliant feedback from delegates so far, examples include:

“What a great webinar! A first for me and I really enjoyed the presentations/demonstration.”

“Thank you for the interesting webinar today I really enjoyed.”

“…such an engaging and informative webinar!”

A huge shout out must go to Endoscope suppliers KARL STORZ, DP Medical and PENTAX Medical for lending their Scopes and a special thanks to Ben Pattinson & Matt Daniels (KARL STORZ), Jon Depledge (DP Medical), and Michael Unger (PENTAX Medical) for making this possible.
