AeroCure Vac® | Surgical Smoke Evacuation System

THE HANDS-FREE SOLUTION FOR
SURGICAL SMOKE MANAGEMENT

New regulations require the use of effective
surgical smoke evacuation systems

The AeroCure Vac® is a mobile air filtration system that protects staff from the dangers arising from electrosurgical smoke. Its ultra-quiet, hands-free design will ensure surgeon compliance while an advanced suite of ULPA filtration, gas catalyst and ultraviolet light, will provide the safest environment at a lower cost than traditional smoke evacuation systems available today.

 

  • Compliant with new regulations

  • Simple hands-free design that will not interfere with the surgeon’s technique

  • ULPA/UV-C/Carbon for VOC and virus removal

  • Quiet continuous operation

  • Cost-effective compared with traditional smoke management solutions

How it Works

Air contaminants in operating rooms put patients and hospital staff at risk:

The AeroCure Vac® mobile air filtration svg - infectious aerosols

Airborne Pathogens

UV lamps inactivate organisms and bacteria can be present in plume

The AeroCure Vac® mobile air filtration Surgical Smoke Particles

Surgical Smoke Particles

ULPA filtration removes smoke particulate

The AeroCure Vac® mobile air filtration Volatile Organic Compounds

Volatile Organic Compounds

Gas catalyst removes formaldehyde classified as hazardous by OSHA

A NEW CONCEPT IN SURGICAL SMOKE FILTRATION:

The AeroCure Vac uses a draped semi-rigid vacuum tube which is placed near the patient. This system evacuates contaminated air from near the patient. The treated air is then returned to the room at floor level. Advantages include:

  • Preservation of surgical site visualization
  • Frees one hand or assistant from suctioning
  • No patient contact to cause contamination
  • No bulky suction electrosurgical pencils
  • Wide 2.5” tube nearly silent with high flow

Patented System
Pioneered by Aerobiotix

AeroCure Vac’s unique technology is proven to evacuate contaminated air from near the patient and treat it in four stages:

Prefiltration: The disposable, one time use, sterile filter drape traps large droplets, with MERV 11 filtration rating. The plastic drape body also protects the semirigid tube from surface contamination and potential patient to patient spreading.

 

Carbon-Catalyst Gas Removal: The AeroCure Vac uses carbon filtration to remove volatile organic compounds from the airstream. Additionally, a metal catalyst is used to reduce dangerous formaldehyde in electrosurgery plume.

 

ULPA Filtration: Utilizes a cleanroom-grade ULPA filter with a minimum 99.995% efficiency for 0.5 micron particles to remove small bioaerosols and smoke particulate.

 

Ultraviolet (UV) Technology: The AeroCure Vac utilizes a unique patented Internal UV photolytic chamber (IntraViolet) to slow and trap pathogens. The power of UV results in improved pathogen elimination and room safety over ULPA filtration alone.

5X

The Aerocure Vac flows at 100 cubic feet per minute (CFM), 5X more than 20 CFM for a typical handpiece-based system. This greatly improves removal efficiency with near-silent operation.

Filter Drape

The filter drape is a disposable sterile single use item which is placed over the vacuum tube. The single-use design prevents-cross contamination and assures that a new prefilter is used with every procedure.

A Cost-Effective Alternative

Better technologies also need to respect tightening healthcare budgets. The Aerocure Vac single-use filter drape costs 30-50% less than a suction electrosurgical handpiece. Additionally, the extra pre-filtration allows for longer ULPA life, and less frequent filter changes. The Aerocure Vac allows facilities to meet their surgical smoke management objectives with high compliance and low cost.

MAXIMUM DOSE

Aerobiotix’s lntraViolet™ Core delivers an optimal UV dose that provides the highest level of pathogen inactivation.

Germicidal Lamps

High-output UV-C provides a 254 nm wavelength that inactivates pathogen DNA, making it nonviable.

UNIQUE Quartz Cylinders

Thousands of cylinders slow and suspend contaminants, which increases dwell time and exposure to UV.

UV CHAMBER

UV is constrained within the unit, protecting staff and patients from exposure.
