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 in laparoscopic procedures. The Plume-Away system functions without a vacuum pump, ensuring greater visibility to the surgical field. Simply connect the Plume-Away to the trocar side port, for a single, simple connection without the need for additional tubing. Consistent CO2 input elevates intraperitoneal pressure to support the removal of surgical smoke and aerosolized particles through the filter. Preset flow rates safeguard against loss of pneumoperitonium.
