Laparoscopic Smoke Filtration System
Clean air in the operating room
Several studies confirm that electrosurgical smoke affects the health of both staff and patients and reports indicate
that headache, nausea and upper respiratory irritation are amongst the most common issues.
The smoke consists of carbonized tissue, blood, viral particles, DNA, bacteria, carbon dioxide, toxic gases and
water and these airborne particles are small enough to penetrate deep into the respiratory tract.
As standard surgical masks cannot effectively filter these particles, smoke evacuation has become a topic of
immediate importance. National nurse associations and authorities including AORN and NIOSH recommend that
smoke should be removed using smoke evacuators[3, 4]. In addition, during laparoscopic surgery, surgical smoke
will impair visibility in the peritoneum. Hence smoke should be evacuated and filtered.
Remove smoke and odors
With ULPA filter with active carbon, LiNA LapGuard offers evacuation and filtration of electrosurgical smoke during
Easy to use
Attach the luer lock connector to a trocar system with gasport. During extensive use of electrosurgery the roller
clamp may be adjusted to allow for a constant gas flow.
