EGD (Gastroscopy) with TNE Course Description

EGD is the diagnostic procedure of choice in many cases of upper GI disease. Patients who have symptoms limited to the esophagus and larynx may be adequately evaluated with TNE. With the advent of smaller (ultrathin) fiber-optic endoscopes, office-based EGD and TNE can now be readily performed. The later procedure does not require monitoring devices or sedation. If these procedures are performed in the office, reimbursement is usually higher. Primary care physicians nationwide are acquiring skills to perform these procedures and research has documented excellent quality of care. Patients can benefit from rapid, accurate, cost-effective diagnosis. Participants will appreciate the practical pointers of getting started in the office or GI lab. Proper patient selection, sedation needs, and necessary equipment will be reviewed. Videos will reinforce lecture materials. Teaching models will provide “hands-on” experience in using the gastroscope. TNE training includes performing the procedure on volunteers.

Learning Objectives
By the end of this activity, the participant should be better able to:
  • Enumerate the indications and contraindications for EGD and TNE procedures.
  • Discuss the proper use of sedation and monitoring.
  • Recognize the normal anatomy of the UGI tract and nasopharynx.
  • Perform the mechanical aspects of endoscope insertion and manipulation during EGD and TNE.
  • Interpret pathologic findings through the UGI tract and naopharynx.
  • Discuss and demonstrate techniques for the biopsy of lesions and H. pylori urease testing.
  • Discuss management of esophageal strictures.
  • Describe the technique for using EGD to place an enteral feeding tube.
  • List complications of EGD and describe how to deal with them.
  • Implement strategies for obtaining privileges and credentials.
  • Discuss coding practices and reimbursement patterns for upper GI endoscopy.
