For each issue, Surgical Products relies on its readers to share what innovations and technology they’re interested in. These last couple months have been full of developments and exploration in the surgical industry, and readers were curious to know more about one product in particular – Cooper Surgical’s Plume Away smoke evacuation system.
The Plume-Away multistage filter is a passive, disposable system able to clear particulates, smoke, and aerosolized pathogens while simultaneously absorbing odors and chemical toxins. It functions without a vacuum pump, ensuring greater visibility to the surgical field.
It is connected at a single point on the trocar side port and does not need additional tubing. Consistent CO2 input elevates intraperitoneal pressure to support the removal of surgical smoke and aerosolized particles through the filter.
To learn more about the system, Surgical Products connected with Jeanie Fusco, manager of marketing services at Cooper Surgical.
