How is capsule endoscopy performed?
Capsule Endoscopy is usually performed on an outpatient basis. Eight sensors will be place on the patient's abdomen. The sensors will be attached to a Data Recorder that will be worn in a belt around the patient's waist. The patient will be instructed to swallow the Pill Cam with a small amount of water.
Before the procedure, the doctor will discuss with you why the procedure is being done, whether there are alternative procedures or tests, and what possible complications may result from the endoscopy. The patient may have the throat sprayed with a numbing solution and will probably be given sedating and pain alleviating medications through a vein. You will be relaxed after receiving this medication.
After you are sedated while lying on your left side the flexible video endoscope, the thickness of a small finger, is passed through the mouth into the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum. Most people experience only minimal discomfort during the test, and many sleep throughout the entire procedure using conscious sedation.
