A flexible endoscope is cleaned in a machine more like a kitchen dishwasher than an autoclave. The scope has internal channels for shooting air and water out of a nozzle on the tip. It has a large channel to pass instruments into the patient (biopsy forceps, cauterizers, even other more narrow endoscopes). An ERCP scope has an additional channel that carries a stiff wire that is used to deflect instruments coming out the end. This channel and wire is a very tight fit, so it is more difficult to clean.
Attachments to the channel ports should circulate the sterilizing fluids through all the channels. It's not difficult to imagine a clog preventing the fluid from circulating. Testing for leaks and clogs is part of the cleaning procedure, but in practice, of course, errors happen often:

The Iraqi government is said to have spent £52 million ($85 million) on the devices.

Not mine. The trackpad stopped working about 2 years ago. I don't know about the other 2,499,999. It was an interesting rugged design, though I was disappointed that they didn't follow through with the early hand crank powered concept.
Nothing sets a mind into cement like being forced into something painful repeatedly.
It's called a "Conditioned Response" and becomes automatic. Hence the term "knee-jerk reaction".

All the breathless Polar Vortex talk reminds me of yesteryear when the local TV weather people discovered the big, bad "El Nino."
