Coupled with your PPE protocols, our filters help protect you, your team and your patients. Tested rigorously to meet or exceed IEST and EN standards, our filtration solutions support your endeavors to safeguard the air across the operating room.
Viruses range in size from 0.02 to 0.25 microns. By comparison, the smallest bacteria are about 0.4 micron.1
Respiratory droplets generated by an expiratory event – coughing, sneezing, laughing, talking, breathing – have diameters that cover a large size range from approximately 0.6 to more than 1,000 microns.2
N95 masks have a 95% efficiency rating, which allows 100x more particles through compared to a HEPA, 1,000x more particles through compared to a standard ULPA filter, and 5,000x more particles through compared to the Neptune ULPA filter.*
There are published standards for filtration efficacy. Always ensure HEPA and ULPA filters meet IEST and EN standards.

When OR nurse Kim York learned about the dangers of surgical smoke, she decided to do something about it.
AORN, ACS, APSF, ASA, JMIG and SAGES have guidelines around smoke evacuation or aerosol generating procedures.
American College of Surgions (ACS)
Use smoke evacuator when electrocautery is used.
Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN)
AORN's Transmission Based Protocols Guideline includes airborne precautions discussing use of HEPA filters, and AORN's Surgical Smoke Safety Guideline states that "healthcare organization[s] should provide a surgical smoke-free work environment."
Journal of Minimally Invasive Gynecology (JMIG)
Smoke evacuators should be used alongside ultra-low particulate air filtration filters where possible. Use a suction device to remove any surgical plume as it is produced.
Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (APSF) and American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA)
If available, use a closed suction system during airway suctioning. Additionally, HEPA filters and air exchanges are recommended in and around in tubation and general anesthesia practices.
Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES)
Currently, the best practice for mitigating possible infectious transmission during open, laparoscopic and endoscopic
procedures...includes proper room filtration and ventilation, appropriate PPE, and smoke evacuation devices with a suction and filtration system, as available.
