This animated video is an informative elaboration that explains Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. An upper GI endoscopy is a procedure that allows your doctor to view the mucus lining of the upper portion of your gastrointestinal tract. This includes your esophagus, stomach and duodenum. Upper endoscopy is used to evaluate symptoms of persistent upper abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, bleeding, or difficulty in swallowing. The procedure is performed using an endoscope which is a long thin flexible tube with a light and a tiny video camera attached to the end. The camera transmits the image to a monitor. Uncomplicated upper endoscopy takes 10-20 minutes, your doctor will gently insert the endoscope through your mouth and then slowly and carefully move it down your esophagus until it reaches your stomach.
