Fairmont Medical’s Lapview is a passive and on demand smoke evacuation filter which is used where surgical plume is generated inside the abdomen of patients during laparoscopic procedures.
A charcoal filter traps surgical plume and odours whilst the PTFE hydrophobic filter traps particles, bacteria and viruses. The device comes with a drape clip to keep it out of the surgical field. A roller clamp gives the surgeon control over the rate of evacuation of plume.
The filter is also designed to connect suction tubing, this allows a suction cannister connection and diathermy plume removal via wall suction.
