NA Endoscopy/Gastroscopy is an examination of the stomach can help confirm or rule out the presence of conditions like gastritis or peptic ulcers. In this procedure, an instrument called a gastroscope is used to look at the inside of the food pipe, the stomach, and part of the duodenum (the first part of the intestine).

Endoscopy may be done if you have the following:

  • • Chronic or recurring heartburn, nausea or vomiting
  • • Abdominal pain, black stools, weight loss ,liver disease patients
  • • Difficulty in swallowing food or liquids

Your doctor will tell you how many hours before the gastroscopy you should stop eating and drinking. If you are given a sedative for the Endoscopy, you will usually not be

allowed to drive a car or operate machinery for 12 to 24 hours afterwards. The exact amount of time will depend on the medications usedWhat does the procedure involve?

Shortly before the Endoscopy, your mouth and throat will be anesthetized using a spray. Any removable dentures need to be taken out before the procedure. They are injected into a vein and make you sleep for a short while.

Endoscopy generally lasts about 5 to 10 minutes. A small tube or a protective ring is put between your teeth so your mouth stays open and you do not bite the gastroscope. First you have to swallow so the gastroscope can enter your esophagus (food pipe). Then it is slowly pushed into your stomach and down to the entrance of your duodenum.
