Surgery Smoke Evacuators
Smoke Evacuation During Surgery
Smoke evacuation during surgery is an important precaution during any procedure involving electrosurgical or laser equipment. Surgical smoke plumes contain several potentially harmful compounds including benzene, carbon monoxide and hydrogen cyanide. Many of the over 500,000 surgical workers who are exposed to surgical smoke each year will develop symptoms such as nausea, eye irritation and upper respiratory infection. Because the byproducts of laser and electrosurgical procedures can also be cytotoxic, genotoxic and mutagenic, the need for proper smoke evacuators in surgery is critical.
