Surgical smoke is produced when the tissue is destroyed by heat through the use of lasers or electrosurgical devices. Surgical smoke evacuators are designed to prevent possible dangers the operating room occupants may be exposed to during surgery by removing smoke, toxins, and odors. Surgical smoke is considered a biochemical hazard and constant exposure to it can cause serious health issues. Because the demand for surgeries within dermatology clinics are increasing each year, there are several different manufacturers who specialize in surgical smoke evacuators. It is crucial that smoke evacuators operate in a safe, reliable, and simple way. A Presair foot pedal and air switch pneumatic controls are the perfect solution to ensuring that the surgeon is able to operate evacuator hands free allowing them to focus on the job at hand!
Pneumatic controls for surgical smoke evacuators is a foot pedal joined by tubing to an air switch contained within the smoke evacuator to be switched.
