You can use this guide to help you identify and resolve basic errors you may be experiencing with Crospon’s diagnostic and therapeutic technologies – the Endoflip® Imaging System and Esoflip® balloon catheters.

This could be caused by some dust on one of the catheter connector pins. Un-plug the grey catheter connector from the Endoflip unit and examine the catheter connector pins, wipe with an IPA swab if they do not look clean. Reinsert the connector a few times.
Make sure the green dot on the grey catheter connector body is pointing upwards when inserted. There is a matching green dot on the Endoflip® unit. Once you plug in the grey catheter connector with the green dot showing on the top, the machine will automatically move the plunger to the correct position after you press the Continue button
First assess if it is an insignificant error e.g. 12.9 versus 13mm or 15.1 versus the 15mm, the permissible test levels for the 14mm metal tube. In such instances, with the balloon in the metal tube, do a manual inflate to 19cc for the EF325N, ES320 and ES330 or to 29cc for the longer EF322N and see that the diameters are reading 14+/- 1mm.
It is advisable to let the catheter warm up after connecting to the machine for about 10 minutes to minimize pressure sensor drift. It is recommended to pressure zero with the balloon laying horizontal on the preparation area, and just before inserting the catheter into the patient.
If there is more than 10ml in syringe, re-connect the wall power and hit the Continue button. However, if there is less than 10ml in the balloon, you will need to remove the syringe and pull back the plunger to the arrow position. Proceed through the normal start-up sequence. There is no need to re-purge i.e. hit the Continue button when asked if you wish to purge.
Press the Stop button immediately and deflate to 0ml. Remove the red cap from the syringe and connect the catheter fill tube to the syringe. Remove the syringe and catheter connector from the unit and restart the unit. Re-connect the catheter and syringe as normal.

level immediately post-op, but relax over the ensuing 6 months
|5-8||Loose – this is the target range in POEM. We would suggest 40ml in balloon for this particular measurement|
