Palliare, Dedicated to Making Operating Rooms Safer, Awarded European Patent
Palliare has today announced that it has been granted a first European patent for its EVA™ surgical insufflation technology.
The EVA15 insufflator has been specifically designed to meet the demanding insufflation requirements for laparoscopic, robotic and endolumenal surgical procedures. In addition to providing insufflation during these procedures, the EVA15 insufflator offers integrated surgical smoke evacuation capability, to permit the potentially hazardous smoke particles produced by electrosurgical instruments during laparoscopic surgery to be filtered and removed from the surgical field.
The dangers associated with surgical smoke inhalation have been well documented, leading recently to a number of US states passing legislation mandating the use of such smoke evacuation systems to protect the safety of operating room staff.
