Surgical smoke evacuation is an important safety consideration in any clinic or lab where laser and other electrosurgical tools are used. Surgical smoke poses a number of significant health risks to clinicians and technicians who are exposed to it on a regular basis. Because surgical smoke contains carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide and other potentially cytotoxic and mutagenic elements, negative health outcomes can include persistent headache, nausea, eye irritation, upper respiratory infection and more.
The use of surgical smoke evacuation equipment is one of the most effective ways recommended by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for minimizing exposure in surgery centers. Surgimedics surgical smoke evacuators are quiet, easy-to-use and provide an extremely low cost of ownership. An investment in one of our products can improve the productivity of your clinic by minimizing downtime due to staff illnesses.
