Tips for buying Surgical Smoke Evacuation System

  1. The system should have a high efficiency particulate air or ultra low penetration air filter to ensure that particles of the right size are captured.
  2. Laser procedures may generate smoke containing hazardous gases; the evacuator should have a carbon filter to adsorb gaseous hydrocarbons.
  3. It is recommended that smoke evacuators have a minimum flow of 25 cfm to provide effective smoke capture. 
  4. To avoid interruptions in communication during surgery, the system's noise levels should not exceed 60 dBA.
  5. The system should provide some mechanism, a footswitch for example, to synchronize evacuation with the laser procedure. Visual or audible alarms should warn operators of any system malfunction that may cause results to be unsafe or wrong.
  6. In order to prevent damage to the tissue, the device should not exceed 150 mm Hg of pressure. The device should have a clear indication when filters need replacement.
  7. Facilities need to determine whether the system will be used for open procedures or closed procedures; some units listed in the chart are designed for laparoscopic procedures in particular.
  8. Another factor to be considered by facilities is whether the systems will be used during all laser and electro surgical procedures or only select ones; this information will help determine the number of units to be purchased.
  9. It is important that facilities know the planned usage before finalizing a purchase, to help them select an evacuator that is the most suitable for their needs.
  10. Regulatory agencies do not bind the use of smoke evacuation systems. The medical facility is the one to decide in this matter.
  11. During the last few years, the concept of centralizing smoke evacuation has become increasingly accepted.
  12. Facilities need to carefully decide between a portable and a stationary system. A stationary system represents a major commitment on the part of the facility for its size, power, and cost.
