According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 500,000 healthcare workers are exposed to smoke plumes each year. Potential repercussions of smoke exposure include pulmonary irritation, upper respiratory infection, nausea, headaches and genotoxicity. When working with infectious material, there is also a possibility that viral fragments in the air can enter the body through inhalation. A Surgimedics operating room smoke evacuation system can help ensure harmful compounds are captured properly, providing an important safeguard for your health and that of your patients and staff.
