Smoke Evacuation System
The Crystal Vision models 350-D offer the most convenient and effective method of collecting and filtering smoke produced during open surgical procedures. These patented systems offer a smoke collection tube that slips over the electrosurgery pencil in the surgeon's hand. This means that the smoke collection tube moves wherever the surgeon's hand moves and the tube is always positioned at the best location to collect and filter smoke. Other systems have a completely separate collection tube that must be moved by another person if it is going to be at the best location for smoke evacuation. The staff in the operating room seldom has time to fuss with the smoke evacuator tube; therefore, huge quantities of smoke are frequently not captured when other systems are sued.

|How to bench test the E.S.U. sensor?|
I can trigger the 350D by shorting the appropriate pin to ground, but what "fires" the sensor? I seems its supposed to be place in close proximity to the ESU, so I'd assume that a sufficently large EM field would do it? Can anyone confirm?Reply
A patented sensor system turns the evacuator on and off when the surgeon activates the electrosurgical laser, argon beam coagulator, or other smoke producing instrument.
The Crystal Visions are very easy to live with in the operating room.
They are small, weigh about seventeen pounds, and are very quiet.
Most O.R staffs simply slip the Crystal Vision onto a shelf on the electrocautery cart.
The 350-D automatically stops the vacuum pump if tissue is trapped in the evacuation tube.
The evacuators automatically restart when the tissue, or other obstruction is cleared from the tube. Both models automatically tell the operator when to replace the input filter.
This reduces procedural costs, eliminates guessing, and provides for the best removal of smoke from the surgical site.
The model 350-D is further separated from other smoke evacuators when it is used during laparoscopic procedures for removing smoke.
The 350-D was designed specifically for these procedures and this system has several features unique to any smoke evacuation system.
A pneumoperitoneum is created during laparoscopy by inflating the abdominal cavity with carbon dioxide gas from an insufflator.
The inflation allows the surgeon to see better and creates a much safer operating environment for the patient.
Leaks in the instruments and suctioning of fluids (and gas) decreases the carbon dioxide in the abdomen.
The insufflator senses the lower pressure and adds more gas.
Surgeons frequently rest their arm or actually lean on the patient.
This can cause the pressure in the pneumoperitoneum to increase above safe levels but the insufflators cannot reduce the pressure because they are only designed to add gas to the abdomen.
