Medical equipment used in electrosurgery generates smoke that’s harmful to surgeons and medical personnel. Thus, a testing chamber has been designed and manufactured to replicate the environment of an operating room during an electrosurgical procedure to enable ConMed to test if its ViroVac evacuation system meets the regulation within the ISO 16571 standard for 90% smoke removal.
