There is one pending application, US20200000981A1. These are all assigned to Nascent Surgical, LLC.
The I.P. relates to devices and systems for evacuating or removing surgical bioaerosols, including surgical smoke from a surgical site promoting a healthy working environment for operating room staff per OSHA mandates and removal of contaminating particulates and bacteria from the air around open surgical sites to protect patients from post-operative wound infections.
The technology disclosed provides the following advantages:
- Provides a bioaerosol capture device well-suited for removing, evacuating and absorbing smoke, chemical vapors, aerosols, gaseous or generally gaseous material, liquids and/or fluids with contained particles of other material.
- It allows substantially complete removal of smoke, particulates and other aerosols from the operative site including nanoparticles (“ultrafine particles”) of less than 100 nanometers (0.1um in diameter). üIt allows incorporation of the technology into the surgical drape so as to provide high smoke capture efficiency (98%) in conjunction with a required sterile drape to cover the surgical field.
- It allows removal of captured smoke (bioaerosols) from the room to a distant site for dispersal without using a filter that currently returns the “filtered” air back into the surgical suite. This improves employee and patient protection while at the same time saving the hospital and out-patient surgical facilities, millions of dollars once the units are installed.
- The part of the device which attaches to the patient or covering drape, is made of materials that allows the plenum or pad to conform to any body contour to which it is applied.
The global smoke evacuation systems market is estimated to grow from USD 115 million in 2020 to USD 154.62 million by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 6.1% during the forecast period with the laparoscopic and open surgical procedures sharing this growth rate equally.
