Smoke Filtration Systems

Smoke Filtration Systems

The increasing popularity of minimally invasive surgeries performed with so-called “hot” devices – such as lasers, laparoscopy instruments and harmonic scalpels – is not without merit. Electrosurgical instruments reduce recovery time, scarring and pain, minimize the possibility of complications and lower costs, making important procedures more accessible to everyone. However, one major drawback to electrosurgical and ultrasonic procedures is the production of a potentially hazardous byproduct often referred to as a smoke plume.

The negative consequences of inhaling surgical smoke have not been fully studied, though there is evidence to suggest that a number of health issues – including upper respiratory illness, nausea and eye irritation – can occur with only short-term exposure. Perhaps more troublingly, testing has indicated that surgical smoke contains upwards of 40 potentially toxic chemical compounds, including carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, acrylonitrile and benzene, which have been associated with cytotoxic and mutagenic properties.

For these reasons, the use of a medical laser plume filter system is highly recommended. Surgimedics offers a sophisticated smoke filtration system that can help remediate pathogens from surgical centers, operating rooms and other healthcare facilities.
