Surgical smoke

Fume management for a fume-free operating theatre.

The only effective protection against surgical fumes is to extract and filter them directly at the source. In addition to odour nuisance and restricted view of the operating field, fumes also mean a potential health hazard due to room air contaminated with health-endangering particles and viruses. Efficient fume elimination units such as the SHE SHA fume extraction for open surgical applications and the ULTRAVISION™ generator for laparoscopic surgical applications ensure greater safety in the operating theatre.
