The CO2 Advantage for CT Colonography

Thumbnails

PROTOCO2L TOUCH® Colon Insufflator

accordion

The PROTOCO2L TOUCH Colon Insufflator is a software-controlled unit that governs the insufflation of carbon dioxide during CT Colonoscopy (CTC). Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is more rapidly absorbed than room air, which helps minimize the patient’s post-procedure bloating and cramping.

Automated insufflation helps ensure consistent distension in a patient- and operator-independent manner, to help improve patient comfort and reduce staff time during the insufflation process and to enhance productivity.

PROTOCO2L TOUCH Colon Insufflator features include:

  • A selection of specially designed tips for patient comfort
  • Unit displays and records amount of CO2 used
  • Regulated, adjustable pressure to avoid spikes and minimize patient discomfort
  • Over-pressure alarms and safety shutdown features 
  • In-line fluid trap to capture colon effluent
  • Hydrophobic filter to protect the unit from cross-contamination

No special hookups or utilities required. The PROTOCO2L TOUCH Colon Insufflator uses standard medical grade (USP) D or E size carbon dioxide cylinders and connects to a standard hospital electrical receptacle. An accessory cart offers storage for CO2 cylinders and related connections.

On June 15, 2016, The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued a new recommendation to improve the rate of colorectal cancer screening (CRC). Computed tomography colonography (CTC), also known as Virtual Colonoscopy (VC), received an “A” rating as an alternative screening tool to colonoscopy in detecting colon cancer. The USPSTF recommendation was published in the June 21 online edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Click here to see the USPSTF recommendation.

The American Cancer Society (ACS) has included Virtual Colonoscopy in its Guidelines on Screening and Surveillance for the Early Detection of Colorectal Cancer and Adenomatous Polyps as an acceptable option for colorectal cancer screening.1 Optimal colonic distention is a critical requirement for obtaining an optimal Virtual Colonoscopy study.2

System Overview

Indications and Usage:
The PROTOCO2LTM Colon Insufflator administers and regulates carbon dioxide as a distention media to the colon during CT Colonography (CTC or Virtual Colonoscopy) and conventional Colonoscopy.
The PROTOCO2L Colon Insufflator device provides a controlled insufflation of carbon dioxide during CT colonoscopy. Carbon dioxide is more rapidly absorbed than room air and helps minimize the patient’s post-procedure bloating and cramping. The PROTOCO2L Colon Insufflator helps reduce staff time during the colon insufflation process and enhances productivity. Automated insufflation helps ensure adequate and consistent distension in a patient- and operator-independent manner. It also features a specially designed small tip for patient comfort, as well as safety features to help protect against over-insufflation.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION:
The PROTOCO2L Colon Insufflator should be used only when colon insufflation is indicated, and should therefore not be used for any other treatment. It should only be used under the direct guidance of a physician experienced in colon insufflation.

The PROTOCO2L Instructions for Use may be obtained by contacting Bracco Diagnostics Professional Services Department at 800-257-5181, Option 2.
